Global payment and fintech expertise

Quinn brings unique global payment and fintech expertise that will accelerate Cledara’s geographic reach to make SaaS easier to manage for companies globally.

Prior to joining Cledara, Donal worked with N26 to integrate into the US payment system as part of their US expansion and then performed similar roles for their European and UK payment integrations.

At Thoughtworks he held product leadership roles for a European unicorn online food delivery startup and a car financing business with more than $6billion in annual revenue.

Accelerating growth 

The Cledara team has doubled just in the past three months, driven by rapid customer growth as more companies are looking to scale the way they purchase and manage their software subscriptions. 

This has become even more important recently as businesses are increasingly aware of the need to ensure a great employee experience to attract and retain talent. Quinn joins a team that has attracted talent from Railsbank, Paypal, Airbase, Travelperk and Holded.

“SaaS is a challenge for businesses globally and requires a global solution” said Quinn. “I’m thrilled to join the team at Cledara to help companies take control of their software spend whether they’re in London, Lisbon, Los Angeles, or anywhere in between.”

Cristina Vila, Founder and CEO of Cledara, said: “I am delighted to welcome Donal to the team. I love surrounding myself with smart people that want to change the world. People that want to make things better. Donal brings so much expertise in building and scaling product organisations and we will lean strongly on him to build Cledara’s next chapter. We already have Cledara customers across 28 countries and we’re just getting started!”
