Wise CFO Matt Briers to Exit Amid CEO Kaarman's Sabbatical - Shares Slide for British fintech giant

  • Leadership Transition:
    • CFO Matt Briers' announced departure from Wise in March 2024, along with CEO Kristo Kaarman's extended sabbatical, marks significant leadership changes at the British fintech firm. Briers, who led Wise from a start-up to a publicly-listed fintech titan, emphasises a bright future ahead for the company despite his exit.
    • CTO Harsh Sinha will assume interim CEO duties during Kaarman's sabbatical. Sinha's experience at PayPal and eBay positions him well for this role. As Jefferies analysts speculate, this could potentially lead to a permanent CEO role for Sinha, with Kaarman taking on a broader role as executive chairman upon his return.
