Global embedded finance platform Railsbank has announced its appointment of Stuart Gregory as chief product officer. Gregory joins Railsbank to lead product, engineering, and partnerships.
Gregory was a managing director at Wise (formerly TransferWise), where he built launched and scaled the business propositions to represent 20% of Wise at their recent £9 billion listing.
Nigel Verdon, co-founder and CEO of Railsbank, comments: “It is with great pleasure that we welcome Stuart to the team and he has already made a significant contribution at what is a very exciting time for us. We value his insights, knowledge and experience of scaling a business which will be of benefit to both our customers and the Railsbank team. Railsbank continues to rapidly expand and Stuart will play a leading role in our future ambitions.”
Prior to Wise, Gregory was VP product at Paysafe Group, responsible for all consumer products worth a total of €100 million in revenue. Before that he was VP head of Visa Checkout product development, at Visa Europe, which involved shaping the digital wallet into a product available for member banks in a £150 million project.
Gregory added: “Embedded Finance is a huge opportunity. It finally moves us beyond stand-alone financial services, and brings them directly into the context of our relationships with people and brands. I’ve been watching Railsbank closely for a few years, as I think they uniquely have the vision to solve this both globally and in a fundamental way. I’m excited to join and see the next generation of experiences that we’re going to design and enable with our partners!”
