Jörg Bode is the new CEO of the Zurich-based provider of securitization platforms GenTwo. Bringing many years of management experience to the role, this proven financial expert has assumed responsibility for the day-to-day operations of the fast-growing FinTech company, the implementation of its corporate strategy, the quality of its products and services, as well as its further business development, both domestically and internationally. With this addition, the two-man management team of the Swiss securitizer is becoming a triumvirate. The previous CEO and Co-Founder Philippe A. Naegeli is taking on the role of Chief Vision Officer, a position with responsibility for the further development of the company’s brand, corporate vision and culture. Naegeli will also devote himself to the further expansion of national and international ecosystems extending beyond the current range of services offered by GenTwo. The third person in the company’s top management team, Chairman and Co-Founder Patrick Loepfe, will continue to focus on expanding GenTwo's corporate strategy, monitoring the goals set by the company, and acting as an innovation driver for FinTech.
Jörg Bode, CEO of GenTwo, comments: “I agreed to join GenTwo because I immediately found the idea behind the company’s strategic business model, its unique talent pool, and its enormous market potential all very convincing. The tasks facing the company now are to automate the business model to a high degree, scale it up as far as possible, and drive its internationalization forward. I am looking forward to successfully leading GenTwo with my new colleagues through this next successful stage.”
The now three-year-old FinTech company GenTwo, which creates off-balance sheet securitization platforms for its institutional clientele, can already look back on a brilliant success story. Since it was founded in February 2018, this market leader in the securitization segment has generated disproportionately high growth in terms of several key indicators – the number of clients, size of the staff, securitization platforms launched, and particularly assets under administration, which amount to one billion Swiss francs. After completing successful financing round in 2020, this industry leader now aims to continue on its positive growth path. With the appointment of Bode as CEO, GenTwo is gaining additional creative leadership qualities, key skills related to entering (new) strategic partnerships, and experience in developing business areas of strategic importance.
Philippe A. Naegeli, Chief Vision Officer and Co-Founder of GenTwo, adds: “Between the three of us there exists an ideal symbiosis that optimally links strategy, vision and implementation. Jörg Bode's leadership skills will allow us to build important partnerships. I am looking forward to continuing to shape GenTwo's future with Jörg and Patrick and to developing our ecosystems to efficiently connect investors, project owners and stakeholders, creating long-term growth potential for GenTwo."
