Robocash Group has appointed Natalya Ischenko as chief executive and Ivan Adamovich as chief financial officer, as it embarks on “an exciting new phase” of the group’s expansion plans.
Ischenko (pictured) replaces founder Sergey Sedov, who remains as chairman of the board.
Ischenko has more than 20 years’ experience in the financial industry and as a consultant at Big Four accountancy firms. Prior to joining Robocash Group in December 2021, she was group efficiency director and environmental, social and governance leader at Russian payments provider Qiwi.
The alternative finance group, which owns European peer-to-peer lending platform Robo.cash, promoted Adamovich from chief operating officer to deputy chief financial officer earlier this year, before appointing him as chief financial officer.

Adamovich joined Robocash Group in 2019, taking responsibility for reporting, controlling and corporate finance. He will now focus on the operational, corporate and strategic financial development of the group.
Robocash Group said that the appointments mark the beginning of a new phase of development towards expansion and development of its range of financial products.
Ischenko’s broad banking experience is expected to help redefine the business model and key financials, as well as introducing best practices to the operating model and corporate governance.
“Our mission is to be the leader in each operating market by being ready to assist every customer in any financial need quickly and conveniently,” Ischenko said. “The clients and their impressions of the service are at the heart of the updated strategy that the group will be pleased to present in the fourth quarter of 2022.
“Our financial results for the first half of 2022 demonstrate the company’s ability to sustain growth and profitability in changing economy. I wish the success to our professional and dedicated team, and I pledge to further develop our global business efficiently – a company we can all take pride in.”
