[ENG] #155 - Virginie Melaine-Christensen (ADYEN) - All About Adyen

Country Manager France for ADYEN

Season 1, episode 155

To discuss this essential payment player, I needed one of Adyen's long-time collaborators. The choice fell on Virginie, who joined Adyen 6 years ago before its IPO.

We learn (and laugh) with Virginie as we go behind the scenes of this Dutch-based FinTech, which now has a worldwide presence in more than 20 countries and major partnerships with players like eBay. We find out how the scale-up transformed itself into a financial institution with a super agile entrepreneurial culture that allows it to quickly deploy new features and establish fundamental collaborations for its clients. Of course, we also discuss France, where Virginie recently joined as Country Manager, and how the European giant takes local specificities into account.

This is an excellent example of exceptional scaling. Besides the fascinating corporate strategy, Virginie also shares humorous anecdotes, notably about Adyen's listing when she was in Asia.
