Open banking API provider TrueLayer has announced the appointment of Jamie Morton as the new UK Country Manager. He will be responsible for defining and managing commercial strategy in the UK, alongside Truelayer’s Chief Revenue Officer Max Emilson.

“TrueLayer is an open banking leader with hugely ambitious plans. I’m a huge advocate for payments innovation and TrueLayer’s vision to extend its capabilities into different use cases and into different verticals, aligned with my views on where the industry is heading,” Morton commented. “The next phase of open banking evolution with bank to bank payments moving money at a fraction of the cost, will be game changing. To be part of that with TrueLayer and shape the future of digital financial services, embedded finance and payments is incredibly exciting.”

Previously, Jamie worked at Vendigo, a venture-backed point-of-sale financing platform within the home improvement sector. He also led the strategy and operations of MANGOPAY, a payments API platform. He was responsible for building relationships with multinational marketplaces, crowdfunding platforms and payment industry leaders.

“While TrueLayer’s success, its mission to open up finance and its vision of how to achieve that were impressive, I also saw a firm that really lived and breathed its values. That was really important to me,” Morton explained. “TrueLayer has built an impressive culture where product, engineering, design and UX, through to marketing and commercial are hugely inclusive and highly collaborative. That makes it all the more rewarding – achieving great things with great people.”

Recently, Payoneer, the digital payment platform empowering businesses to grow globally has announced partnering with TrueLayer to launch its open banking service for customers in the UK and Europe.

Francesco Simoneschi, CEO and Co-Founder of TrueLayer, commented, “It’s an exciting time for us as we continue our expansion, working with new clients across multiple industries. Jamie brings a wealth of expertise and ideas around how open banking capabilities such as verification and payments can be embedded. His experience, particularly within marketplaces and ecommerce platforms, will be vital to our growth in those verticals and have a significant impact on our business in 2021 and beyond.”
