Barclaycard is celebrating 20 years since its launch in Germany.

The business entered the German market in 1991 under the name Barclays Card Services, with just 30 employees.

Now Barclaycard Germany has more than 470 colleagues and over 1.4 million cards are currently issued to customers across the country, representing a market share of 34 per cent.

Carsten Höltkemeyer, Managing Director, Barclaycard Germany, said: “The 20th anniversary is an important milestone for the business.

“Since its launch, Barclaycard Germany has successfully expanded into areas including open-market loans, and will continue to make lives easier for our customers with new products, fresh thinking and innovative solutions in the future.”

Colleagues from Barclaycard Germany’s Hamburg office will celebrate the anniversary at an event in the city’s zoo this Saturday.
