Having launched the first mobile banking solution in 1999, Hannes is often seen as the pioneer of mobile banking. At the time of acquisition, Fundamo was the global leader in the provision of mobile banking solutions in emerging markets. Fundamo platforms processed 3.5 billion transactions annually in 34 countries for millions of account holders. He has been voted as one of the top hundred most influential people in telecommunication three years in a row.
