We’re thrilled to announce that we have just added two new members to Auka’s Board of Directors, including fintech specialist Perry Blacher and former Nets VP and Smart Payments CEO Susanne Brønnum.

Susanne Brønnum recently left Nets, the biggest payments service provider in Northern Europe, after more than 25 years to pursue new opportunities. In addition to joining as a Board of Director, Susanne has also made a significant personal investment into the company, further reinforcing her commitment to Auka’s vision.

Perry Blacher has, over the course of his career, created and helped build businesses online in asset management, remittances, lending/credit, debt management, payments and mobile money, at all stages of growth.

Together, Susanne and Perry bring a combined 50 years of fintech, payments and business experience and have both developed and scaled several successful payment businesses across Europe.

This is an exciting milestone for Auka. As we start to introduce Settle to people and businesses across Europe, the insight and experience that Susanne and Perry bring to our team is invaluable. Welcoming Susanne and Perry to our Board of Directors provides us with the best opportunity to progress forward and make significant inroads towards digitising money across cash-heavy regions in Europe.

With the backing of our highly skilled, experienced and talented team of Board of Directors, we’re excited about Settle launching in Europe and revolutionising digital currency for consumers and businesses alike.

Welcome Susanne and Perry!
