Gentwo Wins Engagement of Fintech Influencer Spiros Margarisby Company Announcement January 7, 2021
Spiros Margaris, a venture capital investor and celebrated futurist (global No. 1 fintech and finance influencer), will become a new member of GENTWO‘s Advisory Board.
The globally recognized financial influencer and experienced start-up coach will provide valuable support to the Zurich-based securitization specialist in its internationalization and scaling initiatives.
Up to now, Spiros Margaris, though Swiss himself, has built up his reputation primarily outside Switzerland. He became known through his activities as a senior consultant for several international companies, including two unicorns – the Berlin based wefox Group and the Saudi company STC Pay, both of which are now valued at over $1 billion each.
The first financial influencer to achieve a “Triple Crown” ranking, Margaris has now set his sights on his home country, Switzerland, as the focus of his activities in 2021. Among these activities, he will be joining the Advisory Board of the Zurich-based securitization specialist GENTWO.
Philippe A. Naegeli, CEO at GENTWO, said,
“GENTWO is the first Swiss company that Spiros has strategically dedicated himself to. I am very proud that we were able to win over such an internationally respected representative of the global finance scene for our Advisory Board. Spiros’ extensive experience will greatly benefit us in our upcoming growth initiatives, and in scaling our business model. In addition, his immense international network will help us establish valuable international partnerships and penetrate into new segments and ecosystems.”
Spiros Margaris added,
“I only involve myself in young business models that have already proven themselves but at the same time have further interesting growth potential. So, it was natural that I gravitated toward GENTWO. On the one hand, I was enthusiastic about GENTWO’s business model and the commitment of the company’s founders, and on the other I was won over by its broad client base. Functioning as a “thought leader” within the Advisory Board, my role will be to propose new business approaches and help advance GENTWO’s securitization activities internationally.”
