Tandem names Suavek Zajac as chief technology officer

Tandem Bank has appointed Suavek Zajac as its new chief technology officer. Zajac brings almost a quarter-century of experience to Tandem, having developed his expertise across a spectrum of significant technology roles at companies such as Grand Parade, William Hill, Blackberry, and Railsr.

In his new role at Tandem, Zajac will lead the development of the bank’s digital platforms, aiming to enhance the scalability and efficiency of systems that support Tandem’s mission to make green living accessible. His appointment comes as part of Tandem’s broader strategy to expand its digital offerings and reinforce its commitment to sustainable banking practices.

Alex Mollart, chief executive officer at Tandem, commented on the appointment: “Welcoming Suavek as our new CTO marks a pivotal moment in Tandem’s digital journey.

“With a proven track record of scaling companies and developing innovative platforms to solve real-world problems, his skills will be instrumental as we develop our offering to customers looking to live a more sustainable lifestyle.

“His blend of technical expertise and creative vision will be key ingredients in strengthening our position as both a fintech leader and pioneer in green banking.”

Zajac expressed his enthusiasm for his new role and the sector: “As Tandem’s new CTO, I’m looking forward to diving headfirst into the buzzing and rapidly growing green finance sector. As the UK transitions towards a net zero economy, companies like Tandem have a huge role to play in getting consumers over the line on green issues on time.

“One huge component of that mission lies in our ability to leverage cutting-edge financial tech to ensure that switching to a greener lifestyle is not only affordable but as easy and user-friendly as possible.”
