My background has always been in financial services and payments. I previously worked for AIB and PTSB in Ireland before moving to the UK to set up Commercial cards for MBNA/Bank of America. I then worked with most of the large banks in the UK before moving away from debit and credit cards and into prepaid cards.
My first venture in prepaid was as Business and IT Operations Director for Altair Financial Services Ltd, a prepaid programme manager. I assisted in setting up the company up from scratch.
I then decided to start up my own venture in prepaid and founded Prepaid Financial Services in 2008 and I have led the company through dramatic growth to become the third largest MasterCard issuer in Europe today and one of the leading e-money payment companies in Europe.
