Barry O'Sullivan joins OpenPayd

London, UK – 10 March 2022OpenPayd, a leading global payments and Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform has today announced the appointment of Barry O’Sullivan as its Head of Payments Infrastructure. 

Bringing over 19 years of experience in financial services and technology, O’Sullivan will be responsible for enhancing OpenPayd's product offering, adding new payment capabilities that enable the business to reach its ambitious growth targets.

Prior to 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) and more recently, 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.
