N26, the mobile bank, recently announced the appointment of two key senior executives, with a new Chief People Officer and Chief Operating Officer set to join the company in October.

Dropbox VP Adrienne Gormley (pictured left) will take on the role of Chief Operating Officer. Adrienne joins N26 with over 20 years of experience working with some of the world’s most respected technology leaders, including Google and Dropbox. With deep expertise across customer experience, business operations and scaling international teams, she will oversee N26’s customer service, business operations, service experience and workplace divisions, working to scale and elevate internal capabilities and build a culture of customer-centricity and operational excellence across the organisation.

“I’m thrilled to be joining N26 at a time full of opportunity. With more people turning to digital banking than ever before, I believe that we can be the first to pioneer a truly world-class, fully-digital service experience in banking that can set the standard for the future of this industry,” Adrienne shared.

Chief People Officer, Diana Styles

Taking on the role of Chief People Officer is former Adidas executive Diana Styles, who will oversee the digital bank’s Employee Experience, Leadership and Organisational Development, Recruiting, Employer Brand, Rewards and People Operations divisions. With decades of experience across talent retention, leadership development, equity and inclusion and building capabilities for sustainable growth, Styles is strongly placed to build out the next chapter of growth for N26 with a passionate focus on people, talent and culture.

Both roles will report directly to N26 co-founder and CFO Maximilian Tayenthal, alongside a team of experienced executives and leaders.

“It’s a great pleasure to welcome these two outstanding professionals to the N26 family. Both Diana and Adrienne are accomplished leaders, with proven track records in their respective fields and a true belief in the N26 vision to transform banking for the better. As we work towards our vision to serve 100 million customers globally, their skills and expertise will help us lay all-important foundations for us to achieve our ambitions, and I could not be happier to have them with us as we embark on the next leg of our growth journey,” said Maximilian.
