Neo-bank Revolut loses four department leads

Quick Take

  • Chad West, director of marketing and communications, is among those leaving the firm
  • The startup is also losing heads of growth, business and support

Revolut, the unicorn neo-bank, is set to lose a handful of veteran department heads who have been with the financial technology startup since its early days.

Among those departing is Chad West, Revolut’s outspoken director of global marketing and communications since April 2017. West told The Block he will be joining a new startup in a couple of months, but declined to say which.

“Super hard decision to leave, but it’s time for a new challenge, and a trip back to my startup roots!” he added.

Vaidas Adomauskas, head of Revolut’s business product, and head of support Inna Grynova have also left the company. Irina Nicoleta Scarlat, global head of growth, is set to leave. Scarlat and Grynova had been at the firm for three years and three and a half years, respectively.

Revolut is currently in the process of “rebasing” some roles within the company, which involves filling certain positions with experienced, external candidates and effectively downgrading existing staff. But a person close to the company said the four departures are natural moves and stressed that they are not related to the rebasing process.
