The Challenge

Having achieved triple-digit growth in 12 months, and raised €70M from tier one investors, when we started our collaboration with PayFit’s CEO and co-founder, Firmin, PayFit was in full scale-up mode. 

Having grown at such an accelerated rate, 3 to 400 employees in just 3 years, wanting to introduce the right organisational foundations, Firmin recognised the need to surround himself with the expertise of accomplished leaders who had already taken a business to that next phase of growth.
