Revolut appoints Sid Jajodia as U.S. CEO

Revolut, the global financial super app with more than 18 million customers worldwide, has announced the appointment of Sid Jajodia as U.S. CEO.

Sid joined Revolut as Chief Banking Officer in July 2021 and will continue in this role alongside being U.S. CEO, leading the roll out of Revolut’s international banking operations, as well as accelerating the company’s growth in the United States.

Revolut launched in the U.S. in March 2020, offering financial services to both retail and business customers, including banking, foreign exchange, crypto and stock trading. The company has nearly half a million active users in the U.S. as well as c.150 employees and is actively recruiting in the U.S.. In March, Revolut announced the appointment of Yuval Rechter as General Manager and Danil Ovechkin as Head of Growth in the U.S. to help Revolut’s marketing and expansion efforts in the region.

Nik Storonsky, CEO and Co-Founder of Revolut, said, “We are delighted to announce Sid’s appointment as U.S. CEO. Sid has been instrumental in building our Global Banking offer, which will help him and the team accelerate our growth in the U.S.”

Sid Jajodia, U.S. CEO and Chief Banking Officer commented, “I am thrilled to be expanding my role at Revolut as U.S. CEO. The U.S. is a key market for us, with millions of potential customers who don’t currently have access to a sophisticated financial services app that offers the range of services that Revolut does, so the opportunities to grow are significant. I look forward to building on the great work that has already been done and helping to boost our presence in the region.”

Prior to joining Revolut, Sid was previously CEO of Credit at payments business PayU. He spent four and a half years at Lending Club, first as vice president for risk management and later as chief investment officer. He spent twelve years at Capital One in various roles, most recently, SVP and head of SME lending.
