Fintech company TrueLayer has announced the appointment of Jamie Morton as UK Country Manager. In his role, Mr. Morton will play a leading role in defining and managing the company’s commercial strategy in the UK.
“It’s an exciting time for us as we continue our expansion, working with new clients across multiple industries,” said TrueLayer CEO and Co-Founder Francesco Simoneschi. “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.”
Mr. Morton is a specialist in commercial management and payments systems. He most recently led the development of a POS lending platform for financial platform Vendigo, and he has previously led the strategy and operation for MANGOPAY, a payments API platform.
“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,” Mr. 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.”
