Based in London, Jill sits on GPS’ global executive committee and is responsible for identifying, leading and managing all GPS ecosystem partners, facilitating collaboration to drive innovation and growth for GPS and its customers.
Jill Docherty, Director, Global Partnerships, GPS, added: “During my fifteen years at Mastercard and Visa, I have helped innumerable FinTechs launch new card programmes and navigate the payments ecosystem. I have always been drawn to working with entrepreneurial, courageous businesses who are keen to experiment and innovate, all with the goal to continue to advance and transform society for the better. GPS is exactly that type of company. I’m thrilled to be joining the leadership team and helping to establish GPS as the number one partner to call when launching a new card programme anywhere in the world.”
Jill spent fifteen years at Mastercard and Visa, where she held several senior roles across Business Development, Customer Success, Product and Marketing.

She is incredibly well connected and possesses an extraordinary wealth of knowledge of value to FinTechs of all shapes and sizes. She is ideally placed to help accelerate our growth plans as we expand into new markets around the world and build out our global partner ecosystem.”
