Klarna loses top marketing executive
Carol Hargrave leaves her post as chief marketing officer of fintech company Klarna. For the time being it’s unknown who will replace her.
She left Paypal to join Klarna about a year ago, but now Carol Hargrave has decided to move on. The company’s Head of Communications Erik Engellau-Nilsson confirmed the news in an email to Dagens media.
“Yes that is correct. Carol has chosen to move back to Texas with her husband,” he writes.
This is the second blow for Klarna’s marketing division in a short space of time. In November Niklas Angergård, the company’s vice president of brand & marketing, left to join Tieto.
Until a direct replacement for Carol Hargrave has been found, CEO Sebastian Siemiatkowski will be considered acting head of Klarna’s marketing, according to Erik Engellau-Nilsson.
Klarna has been one of Sweden’s most successful startups over the last ten years. In December, the company was revealed to be the fastest growing payment company of all time in the U.S.KlarnaDagens MediaErik Engellau-NilssonSebastian SiemiatkowskiCarol HargravePaypalNiklas AngergårdTieto
