About Ingo:

Having to build the finance function from the ground up wasn’t an easy feat for Ingo Uytdehaage 15 years ago.

Meet Adyen’s CFO, who has successfully lead the finance team through an IPO and helped the company grow to 2000+ employees with 27 offices around the world and a volume of €303.6 billion in 2020.

As for the story of the company, it all started when Adyen’s co-founders, Pieter van der Does and Arnout Schuijff, thought about building a platform capable of meeting the changing needs of today’s fast-growing businesses in the payments technology space. At the time, the industry consisted of a potpourri of outdated systems. So they founded Adyen, Surinamese name for “Start over again”, that perfectly represents their vision to change the payments industry.
