Varo Money has been targeting customers of big banks whose fees they’re tired of having to understand and pay. Despite its appeal to potential customers to switch to Varo, its ads don’t call out specific companies, as some of its peers do.

The company, which has been ramping up efforts to build its brand, also hired a chief marketing officer, Carl Gish, who joined last week.
