- CEO of Form3
Michael set up Form3 after spending more than 25 years in executive positions with Deutsche Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland and Barclays. Most recently, he was Global Head of Cash Management and a Member of the Corporate Banking Executive at Barclays, where he had responsibility for the product management and distribution of the bank’s payment, corporate deposit and customer access products.
For many years Michael has been passionate about driving digital change and innovation in global banks and has sponsored many key initiatives in this area, including white-labeling, biometric security, and mobile payment/banking technology.
Michael holds a degree in Organisational Psychology and a Master of Business Administration from INSEAD.
Form3 was established in 2016 by four banking and technology leaders with a single purpose – to transform outdated, complex and costly payments infrastructure to a modern, cloud-native, real-time Payments-as-a-Service. Since then we have made enormous steps in opening up access to payment schemes for the global financial community, enabling them to scale and optimise their business operations through advanced payment technology.
We provide Banks and regulated Fintechs across the globe an end-to-end managed payments service that delivers complete payment processing, clearing and settlement to the universe of payment schemes through a single API. Our platform handles everything so you can focus more on serving your customer’s needs and less on managing payments infrastructure.
Form3’s platform is cloud-native and built from scratch. It has been designed for the modern, digital era and favours open source collaborative development and the Unix philosophy of small composable modular architecture, (microservices) which we automate full stack tests against. Every single piece of the platform is managed using infrastructure as code.
