Andrea is an expert product and marketing transformational leader, with over 15 years’ experience  across many industries including Fintech, Crypto, AI and SaaS.

Andrea brings a wealth of experience in business management at an international level, having run multi-million dollar revenue streams and been actively engaged in large client negotiations across Europe, US and Asia-Pacific. Andrea is also active in the startup world by supporting early-stage businesses as an advisor and mentor with several accelerator programmes.

Andrea Ramoino commented: “I’m very excited to be joining Contis, one of the major players in the European payments market. I can see many opportunities for growth, and look forward to getting stuck in alongside this strong and motivated team which I believe has all the ingredients to succeed.”

Contis Founder and Executive Chairman, Peter Cox, said: “Andrea’s appointment to our executive team shows our desire to lead in the Banking-as-a-Service and Payments sectors, while we continue to deliver profits and provide confidence to current and future clients.
