Revolut hired Andre Mohamed to be its Head of Wealth & Trading Product. Revolut sees Mohamed as a great leader to run their soon-to-launch trading product since Mohamed has the experience of being a competitive leader.

Mohamed is the co-founder and CTO of Freetrade – a challenger that offers free trading in mobile phones. He gained his Computer Science degree in UCL and has 20 years’ experience in leading fintech startups.

Mohamed says in a statement that the Revolut is a company that one doesn’t across very often so he jumped at the opportunity. According to him, Revolut has a huge customer base and global ambitions, at a completely differently scale to any company he has worked before. He was extremely excited to be part of a fast-growing scale-up that is growing rapidly and getting worldwide recognition. He said that the product they are building is truly disruptive.
