Moniepoint Inc. co-founder and CEO Tosin Eniolorunda, said: “As we accelerate our growth, it’s crucial that we attract the best talent from around the world. Pawel is such a talent and will make a fantastic addition to our senior team. He has an incredible drive and passion for making the world a more financially inclusive place, a vision we’ve long shared at Moniepoint, and I can’t wait to work with him to bring this to life.”

Moniepoint’s Inc. Chief Operating Officer Pawel Swiatek, said: “Since meeting Tosin last year, then visiting the Nigerian market, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about Moniepoint and the huge potential it has to create genuine, meaningful change. The team has seen rapid growth over the past few years, and part of my role coming in will be to take over the day-to-day operational running of the business and enable us to more accurately predict growth as Moniepoint continues to scale and enter new markets.”
