Senior Vice President, Vocalink Mastercard
With engineering degrees from Cambridge University and more than 20 years’ experience in the payments industry, Jim has run businesses for market leaders such as NatWest, Barclaycard, JP Morgan and Vodafone. He has also led start-ups such as Simpay. He has a strong track record of successfully building, launching and managing innovative payments products and businesses.
There is a common thread that has run through Jim’s career to date; one where strategy meets innovation. Jim has brought his strategic skillset to the table for businesses that are in search of the next game-changer in payments technology. His career has progressed in tandem with a payments landscape that has evolved rapidly over the past two decades.
Jim thrives on bringing bold ideas to life, and on driving results. He joined Vocalink in 2012 and until early 2019 led its core UK business, alongside which he developed and launched strategic propositions across areas such as alternative payments (mobile, digital) and data insights (Vocalink Analytics). He is now leading Mastercard’s new Open Banking business.
