Global Processing Services, a global payment technology platform, announced the appointment of Jill Docherty as Director, Global Partnerships. 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. Jill has extensive international experience, having lived and worked across three continents, Africa, Asia-Pacific, and Europe. Her most recent position was Head of Business Development UK & Ireland at Visa, where she had end-to-end responsibility for delivering the full range of the Visa portfolio to different customers, including strategic growth issuers, commercial offerings, and the FinTech sector.

Joanne Dewar, Chief Executive Officer, GPS, said: “We are delighted to welcome Jill to our senior leadership team. Jill is someone we have collaborated with for many years through our long-standing partnerships with both Visa and Mastercard, both of whom are also investors of GPS. 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.”

In January, IBS Intelligence reported that Global Processing Services announced the closing and upsizing of its latest fundraise at over US $400 million. IBS Intelligence recently reported that GPS announced a strategic partnership with Mastercard. Together, GPS and Mastercard have worked to launch and scale hundreds of card programmes for some of the most successful and innovative FinTechs globally, including Revolut, Starling Bank and Curve, amongst many others across Europe and Asia-Pacific.
