OpenPayd today announces the appointment of Adam Bialy as Chief Product Officer and Sophie Guibaud as Chief Growth Officer.

Sophie joins OpenPayd from Fidor, where she was appointed as Vice President of European Expansion in 2015, becoming Managing Director Europe in 2018. She began her career in investment banking before joining a growth capital fund. After launching HelloFresh, she led product strategy and commercialisation at Bankable, before establishing Fidor in the UK.

Adam joins OpenPayd with extensive experience in the payments and financial technology industry. He brings a broad range of product development knowledge from his prior role as Head of Payments at Sainsbury’s and senior roles at Ukash, FIS, Raiffeisen Bank and Elavon.

These strategic hires come at a pivotal time for OpenPayd as it continues to develop new banking and payments solutions, and grow its client base. Sophie and Adam will be a crucial part of developing and implementing initiatives within OpenPayd and advancing its modular platform to serve the needs of today’s corporates. The flexible technology enables businesses such as financial institutions, FX Brokers, cryptocurrency exchanges, e-commerce platforms and SMEs to quickly and easily access a customisable range of international banking products.

Iana Dimitrova, Chief Executive of OpenPayd, commented: “Adam and Sophie’s impressive experience and expertise mean we are better placed to accelerate the development of our customisable technology and growth of the business. I am delighted to welcome them to the team as we continue to expand our product offering and global reach.”

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
