Caroline Stockmann: Expertise and wisdom from someone at the heart of treasury
TreasurySpring appoints Caroline Stockmann to its board of directors. Caroline joins the team as the company implements its growth strategy and continues to scale its product, sales, marketing, and tech teams, while further expanding its product offering. We welcome her wealth of knowledge as a board and C-suite director and her 30 years of experience within international finance, operations, governance, and leadership roles.
Caroline’s previous role as CEO of the respected ACT (Association of Corporate Treasurers) has placed her at the heart of all things treasury. During her time at the ACT Caroline was pivotal in (among other things) driving change for IE&D and ESG policies. Her role of CEO at the ACT also oversaw professional career education for treasurers, and she acted as an advocate for corporate treasurers with regulators, governments, and other key stakeholders. Caroline also remains Deputy Chair of IGTA (the International Group of Treasury Associations).
In her role as a Non-executive Director at TreasurySpring, Caroline will lend her leadership and coaching experience to our approach across the treasury profession, offering strategic guidance and oversight to ensure all that we do is customer-led. This valuable insight into the industry will enable us to tailor and refine our approach.
A time of growth for TreasurySpring
Caroline’s appointment follows TreasurySpring’s recent $29 million Series B funding, led by Balderton Capital. This latest round of funding has provided the company with the capital to fund its broad range of growth plans as it continues to scale its product, sales, marketing, and tech teams in order to expand its product offering and accelerate international expansion.
Founded in 2017, TreasurySpring addresses the growing need for companies of all sizes to diversify their cash deposits, access high-quality investments and minimise their banking risk. This challenge is especially urgent in the wake of rising interest rates and with the dangers of unsecured deposits having been brought into sharp focus by the recent collapses of SVB and Credit Suisse. Thanks to its seamless, secure solution, demand for the TreasurySpring platform has accelerated, with over 300 institutional clients already signed up.
TreasurySpring’s intuitive solution makes it easy for companies to invest excess cash through a secure and flexible platform. They work with a broad range companies from FTSE 100 corporations and leading multinationals to Series A growth companies and can include leading fund managers, insurance companies, banks, charities and family offices. Designed to help those companies maximise returns whilst minimising risk, the platform gives access to investment capabilities and diversification that have historically only been accessible to the world’s largest financial institutions.
Whilst TreasurySpring is set to increase the size of its team, it is keen to do so at the right pace and in the right way – partnering with only the most talented and respected industry leaders and champions for change. As the company looks to implement its growth strategy and offer the best risk-adjusted cash investment products to an even greater number of corporate clients, it’s clear that Caroline Stockmann is the perfect partner for TreasurySpring. The company will also look to harness her passion and understanding for sustainable investment and ESG in the development of its own product offerings. Caroline’s appointment to the board will ultimately provide greater insight into the core needs and aspirations of the treasury sector and of treasurers themselves.
Caroline Stockmann, Non-executive Director, TreasurySpring board member, said:
“I’m really excited to be joining the board of TreasurySpring. It’s not only an exciting time for the organisation, with lots to think about as it grows, but the essence of what it is trying to do is something which really appeals to me. For more years than I can remember I have advocated for making CFOs’ and treasurers’ lives easier, most notably in my role at the ACT. So TreasurySpring’s creation of a platform for investment which decreases risk while maintaining a healthy return, with the potential to benefit most if not all treasurers, is what I’m really passionate about!”
Kevin Cook, co-founder and CEO at TreasurySpring, said:
“From the moment that I heard that Caroline was moving on from her position as Chief Executive of the ACT, I was keen to see if we could find a way to work together. I have always been impressed by the breadth and depth of Caroline’s knowledge about everything from corporate treasury to leadership and coaching and it is a privilege to have her join us as a director. I am excited to work with, and learn from her in the years to come and I have no doubt that she will fit in perfectly to the TreasurySpring family.”
John Bentley, Head of Sales, TreasurySpring added:
“We’re incredibly excited that Caroline Stockmann has joined the board of TreasurySpring. Her invaluable experience as chief executive officer of the ACT, and her years of overseeing corporate treasury in CFO roles at established organisations, will help TreasurySpring further enhance and structure our product offering around the needs of corporate treasurers.”
