The company aims to be the leading provider of alternatives to mainstream payment methods, and as CEO of Banked Europe, Lisa will be responsible for managing strategic relationships, developing in-market strategy and driving regional growth and expansion.
“I am excited to announce Lisa as our new CEO of Banked Europe,” said Brad Goodall, Global CEO and co-founder of Banked. “She is a dynamic, values-driven business leader with extensive expertise and industry experience and is an invaluable asset to our team as we continue to expand our business across Europe. I am confident Lisa is the right person to drive the strategy for the next evolution of Banked across the region and establish the company as a leader in the pay by bank space.”

Banked Europe is committed to delivering innovative payment solutions that meet the evolving needs of businesses and consumers across the continent all while optimizing for the local user experience. Lisa’s appointment is a major step forward in achieving this goal.
Founded in 2018, Banked is building a new global payment network that is reimagining mainstream payment methods and the current infrastructure facilitating digital payments around the world. Unlike other popular payment methods, consumers do not need to create an account or pass any login information to Banked - they simply choose their existing bank at checkout and are connected to their mobile banking app to biometrically authenticate the purchase. Total checkout time for a first-time user is typically under 30 seconds and no financial details are shared with Banked for a secure experience.
For merchants, costs are significantly lower and transactions take place in real time and settle instantly. The market for pay by bank payments is growing rapidly. Allied Market Research recently predicted the market will reach $43 billion by 2026 in Europe alone. Banked is dedicated to providing payment solutions that are easy to use, secure, and reliable.
