After an early career in financial services underwriting mortgages for companies such as Abbey National (now Santander) and the Woolwich, I was lucky enough to be involved in a technology initiative and fell in love with creating great software.

Moving into the world of payments a couple of years ago was quite daunting, but it very quickly became clear it was a great move. It’s such an exciting industry that really embraces innovation. I never cease to be amazed by the different ways there are to pay, across countries and cultures. Enabling businesses to reach new customers around the world, giving people access to goods, services and opportunities that our grandparents couldn’t have dreamed of is very rewarding to me.
