Revolut, one of the fastest-growing financial apps with more than 18 million users worldwide, recently announced the expansion of its team with the appointment of Ibrahim Dusi, the former Vice President of Retail Banking at Capital One, as the company’s new Chief Risk Officer for Americas.

Last year, Revolut announced the appointment of Juan Miguel Guerra, the former Chief Innovation Officer at Citibanamex, as CEO of the Mexico region. Since its US launch in 2020, the financial app witnessed a surge in demand across the region. Recently, the company enabled US customers to send money to bank accounts in Mexico in up to 30 mins.

“Revolut is building the world’s first truly global financial super app, and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to build upon Revolut’s risk and governance function to support users across the Americas. I look forward to working with the team as we sustainably scale Revolut’s business in the region and make innovative financial products and services accessible for more consumers around the world,” Dusi said.
