Effective January 1, 2020, Dominik Wurzer will become the new CEO of the Schlieren-based Fintech. He comes from the company’s own ranks: Dominik Wurzer formerly held the role of Chief Sales Officer. He joined Contovista around 2 years ago, having previously worked with the strategy consulting team with a software-as-a-service company in the Digital Customer Experience field. Dominik Wurzer takes over the position from Gian Reto à Porta, who, together with co-founder Nicolas Cepeda, will remain with the company as an advisor.
Gian Reto à Porta, co-founder and long-standing CEO of Contovista: «I wish Dominik every success in his new position and i am proud that our Contovista DNA, which has developed over the years, will be continued though this internal appointment. I am equally glad that with the Aduno Group we have a strong team with well-established structures behind us. Thus Contovista is ideally positioned for the coming years.»
The new CEO Dominik Wurzer comments: «I am very much looking forward to this new role, as more and more banks are recognising the huge potential of data-driven banking. The financial industry is in a major transformation and banks are increasingly being asked to offer their customers simple, intelligent digital solutions that are already familiar from other industries. With our profound know-how in data analytics and AI, we are therefore an ideal innovation partner for banks and are looking forward to continuing our success story with the Aduno Group.»
