Daniel Belda - Head of Product Strategy

OpenPayd, a leading global payments and banking-as-a-service platform has today 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 the continuous improvement of its services and build new fintech propositions for its diverse set of clients.

Prior to joining OpenPayd, Belda spent just under five years in senior positions at Worldpay, developing a domestic acquiring solution for the Brazilian market and left the business as VP of Digital Content and Gaming.

Over the course of his career Belda has developed a deep knowledge of the global e-commerce payments landscape. His appointment comes as the fast-growing fintech pushes ahead with an ambitious roadmap that will see its rapid expansion intensify during 2022.

“Payments are changing - from the methods to the companies facilitating them and embedded finance is the driving force behind this change,” said Daniel Belda, Head of Product Strategy at OpenPayd. “Through the OpenPayd platform businesses are able to bring these embedded finance capabilities to life. I’m excited to be on this journey with them, overseeing the work of our product team and supporting OpenPayd’s significant growth around the world.”
