Bitpanda were looking for a Chief Human Resources Officer to be responsible for driving a differentiating people approach that will not only attract, but also engage, global top talent. The main aspects of the role are to ensure Bitpanda’s people approach is industry-leading and up-to-date with evolving working trends – from changing ways of working and digital HR, to people analytics, reward, and diversity and inclusion. The CRHO will also act as a business partner to the Founders and executive team in company-wide strategy and operations; as well as a culture influencer, helping evolve the culture in their growth journey whilst maintaining Bitpanda’s core ‘DNA’. Finally, they will need to optimise all people-centred activities for extensive growth: including people operations, recruitment, reward, development and performance management.
Lindsay Ross brings extensive experience creating end-to-end people strategies in high-growth, global organizations – from startups to multi-billion-dollar enterprises (including MessageBird and Adyen). She is known for building trusted relationships internally and externally across all levels and regions to deliver results, supporting organisational transformation and sustainable business outcomes. She has also helped build purpose-led organizational cultures and high-performing, diverse teams through active coaching and building business capabilities.
“We were looking to find the right CHRO who believes in our vision, understands hyper-growth, and has the right amount of energy and empathy, for a long time. Lindsay combines those attributes and I am happy she is becoming our Chief Human Resources Officer to reinforce our view that it is the strength and depth of our talented team that will drive Bitpanda’s continued success. We have tremendous confidence in Lindsay’s ability to help Bitpanda stand out and to provide valuable strategic contributions to build on the success of our high-performing teams.”
Eric Demuth, Co-Founder, and CEO of Bitpanda.
“This is a pivotal and exciting moment to be joining Bitpanda and the wider fintech community. I’m already inspired by the extremely talented, diverse, and passionate team members who I’ve had the privilege to meet and can sense an incredible culture driven by purpose, high performance, and innovation. I look forward to growing along with Bitpanda as we enter the next phase of our global expansion and seize the limitless opportunities ahead of us as we democratize the world of investments.”
