Sebastian Siemiatkowski

Founder & CEO

Sebastian Siemiatkowski is Chief Executive Officer and founder of Klarna. Sebastian was born in 1981, has eight years of experience in sales and a degree in Cconomics from Stockholm School of Economics. Having gathered insights into the payment industry during a gap year from university, he began to wonder what kind of payment solution for e-commerce would make it possible to separate the fun act of buying from the nuisance that is paying. Convinced that the solution to this dilemma would truly add value for both buyers and sellers, Klarna was born.
