João Del Valle, Co-founder at Ebanx, is the new Chief Executive of the firm.
After working as COO for several years, preceded by nearly seven years as company CTO, Del Valle has now taken over the executive leadership of the Fintech firm, which was being led by Co-founder Alphonse Voigt for nearly a decade (since it was established in Curitiba, Brazil).
With this senior management change, Voigt will be serving as the Head of the Board of Directors, as Executive Chairperson, and Wagner Ruiz, also a company Co-founder, is now the Chief Risk Officer, leaving the CFO role to the newly appointed Alexandre Dinkelmann, the former executive in the Brazil-based BTG Pactual and TOTVS.
As COO, Del Valle led key initiatives for the Fintech firm’s business expansion, like the ensemble of the international commercial team, the deployment of 50 new integrations and payment methods within the firm’s B2B solutions portfolio (last year), and the Push LatAm, a project that aims to establish EBANX business operations in various other Latin American (LatAm) countries, including in Central America and the Caribbean.
Del Valle stated:
“EBANX has a unique story and it will be a privilege to lead this next chapter. Our vision of being the best payment provider in Latin America is growing stronger, and always fueling the urge to innovate. The path we want for EBANX is very clear for the three of us, co-founders: focus on the mission of providing access in Latin America, through technology, speed, consistency and quality of execution.”
Voigt has been EBANX‘s Chief Executive since the launch of the firm which, during his time as CEO, surpassed the market value of $1 billion, notably becoming the first unicorn in Brazil’s southern region.
Now, as Executive Chairperson, Voigt will be in charge of the firm’s strategic expansion efforts.
“The big dream got even bigger and from now on I take on this new position, helping to envision the next decade of EBANX. And João, our new CEO, is an example of dedication, focus and result orientation. He has a unique capacity to keep the company growing exponentially while projecting our future.”
Alexandre Dinkelmann, who has now been appointed CFO, will continue the work of Wagner Ruiz, who will now be tasked with the firm’s risk management, strategic partnerships and regulatory issues – which are all key in driving the growth of EBANX.
“Alexandre’s arrival brings us even more robustness, capacity and talent to maintain the pace of growth and adapt our financial sector to the new moment that EBANX will experience.”
Dickelmann brings his extensive experience working as CFO at TOTVS and Even Incorporadora, along with his previous experience at BTG Pactual and also his role as a Co-founder of the Onyo platform.
The new EBANX senior management team aims to consolidate the company as a key payments service provider in Latin America.
EBANX will further expand its operations that have provided access to over 70 million Latin American consumers to the biggest global brands, like Uber, Spotify, AliExpress and SHEIN.
Del Valle also mentioned:
“These changes arrive in line with our goals for the next decade. Our success depends on the success of customers in the region and this is our focus. We remain even stronger and more structured to establish the leadership of Latin America in the global market and the leadership of EBANX in the world of payments and technology.”
