Croatian fintech startup Aircash has brought a new minority shareholder on board in the form of Udo Müller. The Austrian has more than 20 years of experience in the fintech industry.
At the age of just 25, Udo Müller joined the then start-up paysafecard, staying with the Paysafe Group for nearly two decades and playing a key role in building paysafecard into a leading international player in the online payment sector. In 2014, he was appointed CEO of ecash division of Paysafe, a position he held until 2022.
He will spearhead Aircash’s growth, focusing on enhancing product development, banking functionality and geographic reach, with a strong emphasis on Eastern Europe, Africa and Latin America.
In addition, Udo will also provide invaluable support for future Merger & Acquisition activities as Aircash explores new opportunities and synergies in the fintech landscape.
Udo Mueller says: “I have closely observed Aircash’s success for over five years now and have established a personal connection with Hrvoje. Therefore, I am deeply honoured and enthusiastic about collaborating with the Aircash team.
“I am firmly convinced that Aircash has the potential to become the preeminent super-app for financial services.”
CEO Hrvoje Ćosić adds: “Udo’s extensive experience and strategic acumen will serve as a valuable asset to Aircash. With his expertise, Aircash is poised to achieve new levels of success, further enhancing convenience and value for our customers.”
The company envisions becoming a comprehensive super app for all forms of payments, including money transfers, online shopping, entertainment, ticketing and bill payments.
