Colin Walsh is the CEO and co-founder of Varo Bank which is on track to become the first mobile-centric national bank in U.S. history. Colin founded Varo with a specific vision: to help millions of people improve their financial lives.

Colin is uniquely positioned to lead the mobile bank revolution and has more than 25 years of experience in consumer banking at large global financial institutions. He led Europe’s largest consumer card business as an Executive Vice President at American Express.

Colin also led the UK’s largest mortgage and savings businesses at Lloyds Banking Group, and served as Managing Director for the firm’s retail bancassurance, credit, debit and merchant acquiring businesses.

Under Colin’s leadership and with an experienced team, Varo is building the best banking company in the country for consumers looking to make progress in their financial lives. The team recently launched instant Varo-to-Varo transfers and last year, were the first to introduce No Fee Overdraft, to remove fees on overdrafts.
