Claude Meurisse had been Luxhub’s ad interim CEO since November 2022. The company said he would lead the company’s expansion into “open finance” on 15 May.
Meurisse stated in an announcement: “Under my leadership, and with the help of my valuable colleagues, we want to build on the success of Luxhub and ‘level up’: the goal is to be recognized as a focal point at the very center of the open finance ecosystem, and to continue helping financial institutions in their digital and data journey through mutualization and innovation.”
Jean Hilger, Luxhub’s board chairman, stated: “This choice is based on both the competence and the stability brought by the selected candidate. Claude is a seasoned tech and finance professional, who’s been one of the keys to the success of Luxhub.”
“As the company celebrates its fifth anniversary in 2023, we--the board of directors, authorized management and all internal experts--have to ambition to take Luxhub to the next level, providing innovative open finance-powered solutions to any company willing to digitalize and smoothen its payment and financial data processes.”
Meurisse had been Luxhub’s chief operating officer since May 2018 and serves as a member of several European technical working groups. He previously spent more than 18 years in various IT roles at BGL BNP Paribas.
Luxhub is backed by four local banks: BGL BNP Paribas, Post Luxembourg, Raiffeisen and Spuerkeess. The fintech firm launched an open banking platform and has plans to move into other financial services.
