We’re excited to announce that the Charlie Finance team is joining Chime! This talented group, whose mission is aligned with Chime’s, will continue working on new and better ways to provide people more control over their financial lives.
Charlie was founded in 2016 by Ivo Parashkevov, Ilian Georgiev and Robert Ludeman to support Americans who feel anxiety when it comes to managing their personal finances. While the Charlie app is going away, at Chime the team will be able to have even greater reach and impact.
“We built Charlie to help consumers navigate their way out of debt during a time when credit card balances were near record-highs,” said Charlie CEO and co-founder, Ilian Georgiev. “As part of the Chime family, we’ll be able to further our goal of helping everyday Americans get a better understanding of where their money goes, and achieve financial freedom.”
“Now more than ever consumers are in need of resources to better understand their personal finances” said Ryan King, CTO and co-founder of Chime. “We’re excited to welcome the Charlie team to Chime and look forward to building a world where everyone has financial peace of mind.”
