Cloud banking platform Mambu announced that its CEO and Co-founder Eugene Danilkis will be stepping down effective immediately.
Mambu said that Eugene made the decision to step down after thirteen years at the company for personal reasons. He will continue to play an important role in the future of the business as a member of the board.

“I’m honoured and humbled by the opportunity to lead Mambu through this transition and appreciative of all the support from the board of directors, Eugene, and my leadership team.
Mambu has an immense opportunity to continue disrupting the financial services market and to delight our customers and their customers with better financial experiences.”
Fritz Oidtmann, Chairman of the Mambu Board said,
“We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Eugene for his commitment, vision and dedication to the company he has helped to build from the ground up since 2011.

We fully respect and support Eugene’s decision to step down and prioritise personal matters at this time.”
