OpenPayd appoints Barry O’Sullivan as Head of Payments Infrastructure
By Joy Dumasia
OpenPayd, leading global payments and Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform, has announced the appointment of Barry O’Sullivan as its Head of Payments Infrastructure.
With over 19 years of experience in financial services and technology, O’Sullivan will be responsible for enhancing OpenPayd’s product offering and adding new payment capabilities that enable the business to reach its ambitious growth targets.
Before OpenPayd, O’Sullivan has held senior positions across a number of payment and FX providers. O’Sullivan was Head of Global Payment Solutions at foreign exchange company, HiFX (now known as XE). More recently, he was responsible for building strategic relationships at Vitesse PSP Limited, where he served as Director of Corporate Payment Solutions and at SaaS company Kyriba, as Strategic Payments Director.
OpenPayd’s expertise in connecting to international instant payment schemes has been a major factor in its strong growth trajectory. It is expected to take on even more importance as OpenPayd’s cross-border payment volumes continue to surge.
With payment acceptance impacted by inconsistent infrastructure, O’Sullivan will play a key role in strengthening OpenPayd’s global payment processes, with the aim of connecting its BaaS platform to all available instant payment schemes around the world.
Barry O’Sullivan, Head of Payments Infrastructure at OpenPayd, said: “I am excited to join OpenPayd and am committed to supporting our customers with a payment infrastructure that delivers first-class payments and FX services helping them to scale globally.”
Recently, IBS Intelligence reported that OpenPayd, a leading global payments and banking-as-a-service platform, has announced the appointment of Daniel Belda as its Head of Product Strategy. Belda will define the go-to-market approach for OpenPayd’s embedded finance and BaaS product suite, oversee its services’ continuous improvement, and build new FinTech propositions for its diverse set of clients.
