By Gloria Methri
Tink has hired Andrew Boyajian, former head of emerging payments and FinTechs at JPMorgan, to lead its Variable Recurring Payments (VRP) unit in the UK.
For the past two years, Boyajian was working in JPMorgan’s wholesale banking business, where he set the strategy for the development and commercialisation of emerging payment types. He was engaged with emerging FinTech clients and electronic payment originators and led the sales strategy.
Prior to this, Boyajian spent five years as Head of Banking, in North America for Wise. He also served as Director of International Payments for Kickstarter. At Tink, Boyajian will be entrusted with turbocharging the next phase of VRP developments.
He is one of four new senior recruits at the company’s London offices. Tink recently hired Ian Morrin, formerly of Bud, as VP of payment sales, along with Kevin Ward from Klarna as VP of strategic account management, and WorldPay’s Reece Shannon-Sinclair who joins as head of delivery and solutions architecture.
Speaking on the key hirings, Tom Pope, head of payments and platforms at Tink said, “Our UK office has increased more than fivefold in the last 12 months, and these hires will enable us to stay at the forefront of payments innovation. With a team that has a wealth of experience in the payment ecosystem, we have our sights set firmly on increasing user adoption of Pay by Bank and cementing its status as a game-changing payment method, in partnership with some of the biggest PSPs and banks in the world.”
Currently live in 18 markets, Tink serves more than 300 customers including traditional banks, neobanks, FinTechs, and payment service providers. Through one API, Tink enables customers to move money and access aggregated financial data to make better risk decisions, verify account ownership, and build personal finance management tools.
