BankiFi announces Chief Technical Officer

Building on our recent North American expansion, we're delighted to share the appointment of Danny Piangerelli (formerly of Malauzai Software and Sensibill) as Chief Technology Officer. This further highlights our commitment to targeting technology innovation for the North American market.

Danny is in the perfect position to further our understanding of the North American market’s needs in order to tailor our technology solutions. With more than 25 years of experience in software engineering, Danny's held multiple senior leadership positions. In 2010 he co-founded Malauzai Software and served as CTO until it was acquired by Finastra in 2018. Danny then served as Chief Architect of Finastra’s North American community markets business, CTO for Sensibill and as a board advisor at ZSuite.

Danny P social quotes

In the newly created CTO role, Danny will oversee all aspects of BankiFi's technology including engineering, architecture and infrastructure.  

“BankiFi’s embedded banking technology has proven to be highly effective at providing comprehensive open cash management for small businesses,” said Piangerelli. “I was drawn to BankiFi’s approach, which is effectively disrupting the ‘disrupters’ by empowering financial institutions to offer best of breed small business solutions directly to their business customers. By partnering with trusted financial institutions, BankiFi is delighting and supporting small businesses around the world, and now including North America, and that’s a great motivator for me.”

Our new CTO’s hiring comes swiftly after our North American expansion and strategic growth funding. BankiFi recently launched its services in North America, adding to its operational markets alongside Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Asia – having received a $4.8 million investment from previous stakeholders for its expansion into the U.S. and Canada.

“This is a very exciting time for BankiFi,” said Keith Riddle, CEO of BankiFi Americas. “As we’re hoping to grow our business, we’re also striving to make our services better. The nature of our business means that we must be constantly innovating, and we think Danny is the perfect leader for that job. We look forward to working with Danny and seeing how he helps us improve our technology.”
