I’m a member of the Executive Committee for Earthport and President of the Americas. Earthport is a fast-growth, listed, global payments network, and I’ve been a driving force in its transformation from a small, European-focused company to its current business model, with a stellar customer base across top financial institutions, money transfer operators and high growth e-commerce businesses. My background in large-scale strategy and marketing was at P&G.
I arrived in New York in 2007 and set up Earthport in the Americas - building the operational capability, establishing the team and concept-selling the product and platform. Since then, I have personally led Earthport’s top enterprise deals to secure clients and partners from organisations including around half of the world’s top 20 banks, the largest and fastest growing names in e-commerce and all international money transfer companies of note. I lead a multi-functional, multi-disciplinary team, working globally via a matrix structure.
I have originated, negotiated, structured and executed deals with large clients, partners and to acquire businesses. I have also supported over $100m of equity raising. I’m an accomplished public speaker and well-known figure in my industry. Communication is vital, and I enjoy taking highly technical and disruptive concepts and translating them into solutions for specific markets, sectors and companies. I also play a critical role in dealings with US regulators as Earthport becomes a regulated and licensed US payments network.Clear professional values based around integrity, mutual respect and collaboration, underpin my approach. I relish pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in business and firmly believe in being bold and taking calculated risks. I’m highly solution driven and energised by challenge - my style is very suited to entrepreneurial environments and opportunity.
