Martin Tschopp will assume the operational management of the company as CEO from 1 May 2022. He will succeed Stefan Heitmann, who founded the fintech company in 2012 and developed it into Switzerland's leading independent mortgage and real estate specialist. With over 300 employees and an annual brokered mortgage volume of more than CHF 3 billion, MoneyPark is now the clear market leader and is considered to be the founder of professional technology- and platform-based mortgage banking. By expanding its service range to provide real estate services to the next generation, MoneyPark gives its clients comprehensive support in finding, financing and selling properties.
"I am very pleased to be able to lead MoneyPark into its next development phase with the current management team. The company is in an excellent position and now is the time to build on our position as number one", stresses Martin Tschopp. He has been Chairman of the MoneyPark Board of Directors since 2019 and has extensive financial sector experience within and outside Switzerland. He has been at Helvetia since 2017, initially as Head of Corporate Development and then as Executive Management member of Helvetia Switzerland. Besides MoneyPark, his areas of responsibility included the Helvetia Venture Fund, online insurer Smile and the Customer & Market Management of Helvetia Switzerland.
Martin Jara, CEO of Helvetia Switzerland, adds: "Martin Tschopp has successfully built up the new Customer & Market Management area over the past few years. In doing so, he made a fundamental contribution to an even stronger focus on and proximity to the customer at Helvetia. I am most grateful to him for that. I am convinced that we will seamlessly continue with the successful development of MoneyPark under his leadership."
"It's not easy on an emotional level to organise the succession as company founder, but the time is now right after ten years at the helm of MoneyPark. I am extremely pleased to have a professionally proven successor with outstanding interpersonal skills in Martin Tschopp", explains Stefan Heitmann, founder and CEO of MoneyPark. Helvetia has taken over TX Group’s holding in MoneyPark at the same time. Stefan Heitmann remains a shareholder and will stay with MoneyPark as a director with an executive role for major partnerships.
