On the May 24th, we will be hosting an evening in one of London’s exclusive venues, listening to the innovative story of David Sear, the founder of Worldpay.
David has been an entrepreneur and investor in FinTech companies for the last two decades. He is currently Chairman of IXARIS (a virtual card issuer), Bango (mobile payments business listed on AIM) and Semafone, a payments technology business which protects consumer privacy.
He is also a non executive Director of Fintrax Group, a tax-free shopping and cross-border payments business. Previously, David was Group Chief Executive of Skrill. He went to Skrill from Weve, the joint venture between EE, Telefonica UK (O2) and Vodafone UK, where he was Chief Executive. Prior to that at Travelex, the world’s largest non-bank payments provider, he spearheaded the global roll out of the CASH PASSPORT travel card business and Travelex Global Business Payments.
In 1999, he was a founder of WorldPay at the genesis of today’s FTSE 100 global payments powerhouse.
Guests will enjoy the fantastic opportunity to witness his entrepreneurial journey as David explains how he achieved his success, including the trials and tribulations he encountered and, undoubtedly, some wise words of advice for us all!
