With over two decades of experience successfully managing teams and turbocharging growth, Caroline will be leading Yapily’s efforts to acquire top talent, support a thriving and dynamic team, and continue embedding diversity and inclusion into our workplace and culture.
Caroline is no stranger to scaling up technology start-ups and transforming them into industry leaders, having supported Bazaarvoice as they navigated M&A and IPO deals across UK and US markets. Caroline joins Yapily from the leading student affinity network UNiDAYS, where she spent almost two years as VP of People. Prior to this, she held the role of Global Head of People for Verizon Digital Media Services, playing a key part in the global HR leadership team that delivered on the $4.4bn acquisition and integration of Yahoo!.
Caroline’s welcome follows the appointment of our new Chief Technology Officer, Noam Oren in June, as we continue to strengthen and expand our pan-European reach. Since acquiring leading German open banking provider finAPI and announcing multiple new strategic partnerships, we are now poised to take on the mantle as the largest open banking platform in Europe.
“Open banking is a budding industry, so it is a very exciting time to be supporting a fast-growing and disruptive team like Yapily in scaling up and realising its growth ambitions. With Yapily’s current focus on rapid growth in the continent as well as in the UK, I look forward to working with a very talented and diverse team to scale up in multiple geographies.” - Caroline Abercrombie, Chief People Officer, Yapily
“With a focus on innovation, creativity, and people-first culture, Caroline will be a valued addition to our mission to grow high-performing teams and nurture talent. As we continue to scale, her expertise will help sustainably drive our growth and support securing industry-leading talent. Our people are central to our success, and Caroline’s work in attracting and retaining top talent will be integral in Yapily’s next chapter of growth.” - Stefano Vaccino, Founder and CEO, Yapily
