Serrala, a global financial automation and B2B payments software company, has appointed Hartmut Wagner as its new CEO. The transition comes as part of the company’s mission to continue accelerating its ongoing global growth and innovation programme, which has seen Serrala transform from a regional to a global player with over US$100 million ARR under current CEO Sven Lindemann’s leadership.
As the corporate payments industry rapidly evolves, financial service providers must modernise and prioritise the automation of their financial processes to achieve real-time visibility of their financial data, while increasing liquidity, improving compliance and strengthening security. Wagner will draw on 25 years of global technology experience in business transformation to accelerate Serrala’s scalability and support this continually shifting landscape.
Wagner, previously CEO at Collenda, has also held senior leadership positions at Micro Focus, Hewlett Packard and Exact – where he led the cloud business unit. Lindemann, Serrala’s CEO since 2011, will remain closely connected with the company as a significant minority shareholder and member of the supervisory board. He will facilitate the CEO transition while contributing further with his extensive expertise in product strategy as well as mergers and acquisitions.Click below to share this article
