  • Barbara Arnst – A seasoned transformation leader, with more than 20 years of experience as a consultant, investor, and executive. Currently a VP at Telenet, Barbara is responsible for the company’s agile transformation. Previously she was a principal at Bain&Company, a partner at Gimv, and COO at an internet scale-up.

  • Dagmar van Ravenswaay Claasen – A sustainability champion with a background in law, Dagmar held several leadership roles during a 10-year stint at De Nederlandsche Bank, before joining Adyen as Director of Regulatory Affairs.

  • Alexander Renzi – Managing partner at MAPP Advisors, a fintech advisory firm with clients spanning the payments ecosystem, including networks, card brands, sponsor banks, issuers, acquirers, ISOs, and ISVs.

They will join the three shareholder-appointed members of the supervisory board listed below.

“This is a key milestone for the long-term strategy of Silverflow. We have been careful to select a diverse mix of skills, experience, and expertise that will have a direct benefit to our company and our customers. Each board member has specific experience, whether that is in cards, compliance, scaling businesses, diversity, or market knowledge. They have all shown an incredible level of expertise in their respective fields which will allow our leadership team to learn, innovate, and adapt to our rapid growth.”

The announcement follows the company’s success in securing a €15 Million investment, led by industry veterans and payments experts at Global Paytech Ventures, Picus Capital, Coatue, Crane Venture Partners, Inkef, as well as several angel investors that also participated.
