Meet Simon Bär, Penta’s Product Owner for Onboarding & Identity

Alina June 2020 2 min

In June 2020 Simon Bär joined our Penta Family as our new Product Owner. He is responsible for the Onboarding and Identity house. Together with him, we are working on the ideal onboarding process for our new customers. The big vision is to build the easiest and most convenient account opening process so that you can quickly return to your business with a good conscience and avoid any unnecessary bottlenecks.  

Fortunately, Simon has the same understanding of customer-centric processes and products that we do and is highly driven to revolutionize the world of online business banking. At our partner SumUp, he gained experience in business development and project management. Simon is also very familiar with the growth of innovative ideas. After all, he helped the leading mobile point of sale provider in Europe expansion into 16 countries and new markets. Paying by card and smartphone at countless PoS is thus easy-peasy. 

After several successful projects at SumUp, Simon decided to switch to solarisBank to work on scalable KYC products. Know Your Customer (KYC) is the identification of customers and the verification of business data. With this work, Simon already enabled solarisBank to develop onboarding solutions for third-party partners such as OTTO, Tinkoff (Vivid) and also for Penta itself. 

Now we were able to win Simon over completely, as he is fascinated by the idea of placing the customer at the centre of all solutions. So he is in the right place at Penta. Happy customers are the biggest motivator for Simon to start the day full of energy.
