The growing team is constantly innovating, delivering smarter digital payment solutions you can trust.
Following a career in military and civil aviation, I joined a dotcom incubator where I invested in early stage tech businesses.
Prior to founding Payen with Sandy, I spent the first 12 years of my working career in the City of London, specialising in complex software systems for financial markets.
My journey into the payments industry started in the early 2000s when I joined Monex Financial Products (a DCC company) as General Counsel.
Having spent my working life with large firms, the challenge of being part of a fintech start-up was irresistible.
I’ve been working in technical leadership roles for over 20 years. My key areas of passion and expertise are in data, business intelligence, information security, operations, compliance and people.
I joined Payen in 2010 after a 10 year role in the payments industry working with large clients on everything from PED interaction, self-service light touch implementations to full payment gateway services.
As Head of Travel at Payen, I have the pleasure of working with talented Travel Industry experts to identify and understand the challenges they face with regards to payments.
Having worked in B2B technology sales for over 19 years, I still enjoy helping organisations solve really challenging problems, while remaining compliant and demonstrating corporate social responsibility.
I’ve been very fortunate to be directly involved in the payments and e-commerce evolution over the last 20 years and on “the how” to solve a challenge with applying knowledge, experience and partnerships in the payment space.
Payen wants to offer simple and smarter payments all around the world, and I’m enthusiastic about being part of an ambitious team that wants to bring innovation to payments everywhere.
