Donatas Kontrimas named General Manager of deVere Vault
As covered by Money Marketing and Finextra, amongst other publications, we’re proud to announce that Donatas Kontrimas has been appointed General Manager of deVere Vault, our newly-launched global e-money app.
Joining us from Barclays, Donatas says of his new position as GM: “I was attracted to the role by the opportunity to lead a fintech company that can move faster and be more agile than the more established players.”
“deVere’s determination to bring the banking sector into the 21st century and to respond to the ongoing and increasing demand of consumers is a breath of fresh air. There’s a defined and tangible desire to be market-leading entity, focused solely on providing the highest quality, low-cost service to clients.”
As well as managerial duties, the new General Manager of deVere Vault will also be involved in the technical aspects of current and future projects, due to his background in software engineering.
The recent appointment of Donatas emphasises the strength and solidity of our proposition. Attracting business leaders like him, with his knowledge and expertise in the sector, shows the strength of this venture, starting at proposition and through to service delivery.
Indeed, he realises the pioneering nature of deVere Vault, our client-first culture and is passionate about the huge potential.
Initially, deVere Vault will provide global services in electronic money and a single card, multi-currency service. Focusing on those with a global lifestyle, we will also ensure that the best currency exchange ratios are given.
Clients will be able to open a deVere Vault account in around five minutes, withdraw money from any cash machine worldwide, get real-time notifications with all transactions, spend money on the card wherever Mastercard is accepted, and send and receive money in most major currencies instantly with other deVere Vault account holders.
This is certainly an exciting time to be part of the fintech sector. We’re confident that deVere Vault is set to revolutionise how people access, manage and use money across the world. Indeed, I am, as I have said recently to the media, confident that the days of conventional banking are numbered.
Welcome to the deVere team, Donatas!
