Jens Woeste has joined Danish RegTech firm, Muinmos as Commercial Director.
His appointment is fuelled by increasing demand for Muinmos’ complete, automated client onboarding solution which has resulted in an organisational restructure. Michael Thirer, Commercial Director at Muinmos since March 2021, has moved into the newly created role of Legal, Governance and Regulatory Affairs Director.
Jens Woeste joins Muinmos with over 20 years’ of sales, product development and technical experience in capital markets. His career includes over seven years as Principal Market Specialist at Calypso Technology, where he worked with some of the world’s biggest financial institutions. He also spent seven year at Nykredit Markets, initially as Chief Analyst & Head of Quantitative Research before being promoted to VP Product Strategy and Development. Before that, he was a Senior Developer, Risk & Pricing Technology at Aloc Bonnier A/S. He joins Muinmos from Curo Investing, an advisory and software company which he founded in March 2020 specialising in intuitive tools and infrastructure for retail investors.
Remonda Kirketerp-Møller, Founder and CEO, Muinmos: “I am thrilled to welcome Jens to the team. He brings exceptional technical and commercial experience to the team and has a proven track record in sales, product management and building strong relationships with clients. He also has a strong network of institutional clients which he can leverage to help us achieve our growth plans. Jens fully understands the pain points we are addressing at Muinmos and, as part of his role, will work closely with clients to ensure they are fully utilising our platform to streamline and enhance their onboarding and compliance processes.”
“Michael has played a fundamental part in Muinmos’ growth since 2021. I’m super excited to see him move into his new role, leveraging his expertise and many years of experience, and leading our legal, governance and regulatory affairs function to cater for our global expansion and global client base.”
Jens Woeste, Commercial Director, Muinmos: “Banks and financial institutions are struggling with how best to respond to regulatory requirements in a way that doesn’t disrupt their business. They need a solution which can be onboarded quickly, with an open interface which can easily be integrated with their existing infrastructure.
“Muinmos addresses this gap in the market with a nimble and agile solution. Muinmos’ client onboarding solution, combined with the unparalleled experience of the team, is a powerful offering – and I am therefore very excited to be joining this ambitious and visionary company and playing a role in growing the business.”
Michael Thirer, Legal, Governance and Regulatory Affairs Director, Muinmos: “As we continue to grow, we put more emphasis on processes and procedures which will enable our next stage of evolution. In my new role I will focus on continuing to develop our internal governance processes, as well as building up the legal and regulatory affairs functions in readiness for our next growth stage. These are of special importance in a RegTech company.”
Founded in 2012, Muinmos has developed the only client onboarding platform to fully automate the entire client onboarding platform, from AI powered client categorization to fully automated KYC/AML checks and client risk assessments. The platform also performs constant monitoring, keeping up-to-date with changes both in regulation, clients’ details and risk profiles.
