Jens Chrzanowski

For nearly twelve years, Chrzanowski has been tasked with leading Admirals’ operations across its European core markets, including Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and the Netherland. He originally joined the firm in 2011.

During this long stint, Chrzanowski worked his way up through several senior roles with the firm, culminating with the position of chief value officer. His role was to ensure that all relevant aspects of value creation and destruction are accounted for and communicated to boards, management and external stakeholders.

The CEO of Admirals Group AS Sergei Bogatenkov said that Jens Chrzanowski has had an important role in the company’s success and global position.

“I am very sorry to see Jens Chrzanowski go, but I completely understand his desire to move on after working together for many years. Germany is our most successful market, where we have been known as a quality leader in the sector for many years, and Jens has an extremely important role in this. He is a great team player with whom we have secured our successful presence in the financial world and built a strong FinTech brand. I wish him all the best in taking on new challenges,” he added.

The regulatory approvals allow the brokerage firm to offer a set of financial services and ‎also approved to ‎provide cross-border services across the EU / EEA under ‎European passport rights.‎ The company maintains its core offices are in Estonia, Jordan, Cyprus, Malaysia and UK.
