Following a career in military and civil aviation, I joined a dotcom incubator where I invested in early stage tech businesses. The group of companies covered e-commerce, comparison shopping engines, payments and cyber security. My consultancy business, negotiating merchant acquiring contracts for enterprise clients, laid the foundation for Payen’s multi-acquiring payments platform in 2010.
Having spent 5 years building a scalable payments tech platform and 3 years growing at over 110% CAG, my mission is to ensure the company continues to grow at >50% CAG over the next 5 years and becomes globally recognised as a payments innovator whose products and services are second to none.
As a passionate lifelong skier, I have never been known to turn down a ski trip invitation. Married for 30 years, a wife, two adult daughters and a dog keep me pretty grounded.
