  • Jens Quadbeck, former Google Lead EMEA for Sales & Operations: "There is a huge need for cheaper and better card solutions in the business sector. pliant not only has a superior technological platform, it is also the first truly digital corporate credit card in the European market that can be easily and seamlessly integrated into companies' existing systems."

  • The corporate credit card from pliant also takes into account the completely new market requirements: While Corona is driving the digitalisation of companies and marketplaces, corporate procurement is also changing with increasing demands on payment processing.

Berlin, 15 April 2021. FinTech pliant, which recently launched as the first European VISA Infinite partner, is strengthening its management team with a notable new addition. Jens Quadbeck, former Google EMEA Lead for Sales Strategy & Operations and previously active in various sales functions in Germany and at the European headquarters in Dublin, is now Chief Sales Officer at the Berlin-based corporate credit card specialist. He brings many years of experience in building sales and channel partner teams in European markets.

Malte Rau, CEO and Co-Founder pliant, is pleased about the reinforcement of the team "With Jens Quadbeck's experience in finance, loyalty and online marketing, we will successfully implement our strategy for the financial product pliant". And Malte Rau adds: "Corona has not only dramatically accelerated digitalisation in companies, but also radically changed procurement, i.e. sourcing and purchasing. Of course, this is also reflected in payment processing. The digitalisation push means increased use of cloud services and SaaS products. And these are mostly paid for online and by card."

Jens Quadbeck, as the new Chief Sales Officer at pliant, comments on the market situation: "In the home office age, traditional, physical credit cards, which are often only provided centrally, are no longer sufficient for companies. Businesses need flexible solutions with maximum control and transparency, while offering high operational and monetary benefits." Key features of pliant include convenient user management, attractive payment terms including cashbacks, attractive availability limits and market-driven exchange rates. pliant can be integrated into existing systems and does not require the opening of a new bank account.

About pliant:
pliant offers the latest generation of corporate credit cards that include a fully digital card management platform, seamless accounting as well as expense management software integrations combined with high limits, premium card benefits and attractive cashbacks. Within its short operating history, pliant was already the first provider in Europe to introduce the new Visa Infinite Business standard.
