Green Dot Corporation (GDOT) today announced it has named Joshua Goines as General Manager of GoBank. GoBank is Green Dot's award-winning, FDIC-insured checking account offering and in this position, Joshua will be responsible for GoBank's overall strategy and operations.

Mr. Goines joins Green Dot from PayPal, where he most recently served as Senior Director, Head of Retail Market Development and played an integral role in overseeing the strategy and execution to grow PayPal's retail offline business. In this role, Mr. Goines and his team quickly scaled PayPal's retail acceptance network. He also helped launch and manage a series of key industry partnerships, including Discover Financial Services.

"Josh has an impressive professional background with a strong track record of success in establishing and growing innovative payments and mobile technology businesses," said Kostas Sgoutas, Green Dot's Chief Revenue Officer. "We are excited to have him on board and look forward to his contributions as we continue to develop and drive growth of our GoBank bank account."

Prior to PayPal, Mr. Goines served as Chief Financial Officer of Tempo Payments, Inc., a leading company in the decoupled debit card niche that was named top financial services startup by Fast Company and was acquired by Vantiv. While at Tempo, Mr. Goines developed the strategy for the payment industry's first SaaS solution that enabled customers to cost-effectively offer co-branded payment cards and which received a CODiE Award for Best Open Source Solution.

"Green Dot continues to be a pioneer in payments and technology, bringing disruptive financial services products to consumers," said Mr. Goines. "I've watched the company innovate and evolve the prepaid debit card space over the years and I'm looking forward to being part of the team to do the same in the mobile bank account arena."

Mr. Goines holds an MBA from Stanford University Graduate School of Business and graduated cum laude with a B.A. in Economics and Spanish from Claremont McKenna College.
