Share this post

TrueLayer, Europe’s leading open banking platform, today announced that Mariko Beising has joined the firm as its new Head of Payment Partnerships, bringing a decade of experience, most recently at Klarna where she led partnerships with Payments Services Providers (PSPs). 

As demand for TrueLayer’s open banking payments continues to grow, Mariko will play a critical role in defining and managing TrueLayer’s partner strategy, reporting into the firm’s Chief Revenue Officer, Max Emilson. A highly experienced commercial manager, with a deep understanding of European ecommerce and payments, Mariko will collaborate with Payments Services Providers (PSPs), as well as with TrueLayer’s clients to understand their emerging payments needs and use cases.

“Open banking is an incredibly exciting space to be in, with enormous opportunities to fundamentally change the way people pay. It is already replacing legacy methods like cards that aren’t fit for the digital age, and will continue to do so – innovations like Variable Recurring Payments for example will likely replace direct debits,” commented Mariko Beising. “TrueLayer is a market leader and innovator, with a reputation for strong product management and engineering. I believe those two elements are the basis for high quality, agile products that make it an ideal fit for global payments partners and their clients. I’m also excited to go back to my roots, working directly with Product teams to accommodate the needs of PSPs and their enterprise merchants into the roadmap.”

Prior to TrueLayer, Mariko was Director of Global Partnerships and Head of PSP Partnerships at payments provider Klarna, where she was responsible for Klarna’s global PSP partners such as Adyen. With a decade of experience in financial services, she also managed sales and payments partnerships at German online bank payment platform SOFORT, prior to its purchase by Klarna in 2014. There she played a significant role in the firm embracing PSD2 and open banking, managing multiple PSP partnerships.

Max Emilson, CRO at TrueLayer, commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Mariko to further accelerate our growth in Europe and beyond. As more merchants look to implement open banking payments at the checkout, PSPs will play an important role in boosting adoption. Mariko has an outstanding track record in building PSP partnerships from her time at Klarna, along with a deep appreciation, and understanding, of open banking. Her experience at the leading edge of ecommerce payments provides invaluable insight into how to build TrueLayer’s strategic partnerships which will deliver innovation to merchants and their customers.”

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.
