Ex-Travelex Global Business Payments CEO joins Hyperwallet board as investor and director
Vancouver, B.C. – Hyperwallet Systems Inc.(“Hyperwallet”), a leading provider of global payment solutions, today announced the appointment of Peter Burridge to the company’s Board of Directors. As an investor and director, his addition to an already strong advisory team will help further enhance the company’s worldwide strategy and growth, global payments expertise, and leadership in the marketplace.
“Hyperwallet’s global financial network and diverse payment applications made its B2P value proposition unmatched in the world of low value payments,” states Peter Burridge, a Director at Hyperwallet. “Their ability to deliver brandable cross-border payment services across multiple payment channels, devices and settlement networks is extremely compelling, and was a key factor in my decision to join the organization.”
Peter Burridge has achieved outstanding success holding executive positions across the globe for many years, having moved with agility across various industries and geographies. He started his career in the software industry and after enjoying great success in that arena, moved to the financial services industry in 2006 where he operated between London and Washington D.C. as the CEO of Travelex Global Business Payments, the world’s largest non-bank Foreign Exchange provider.
Before Travelex, Mr. Burridge held various executive positions at both Oracle and Siebel. He was President of Siebel Asia Pacific and Japan, and Senior Vice President of Sales at Oracle Asia Pacific. Mr. Burridge has 20+ years’ experience in the areas of Technology, Business Solutions, Product Development, Sales and M&A, and is now an active investor, board member and advisory board member to Hyperwallet and FireScope.
“Finding a company who can send $30 around the world for $1 — and make money doing it — has got to be a game changer,” notes Burridge. “Hyperwallet has tackled the real pain in making international payments, and this will play out to their advantage.”
