With more than 20 years of experience in payments, mobile and fintech, Shaun has a track record of developing award-winning B2B and B2C products.
In his capacity as chief technology officer, Jerome Gudgeon spearheads the technology strategy and delivery for the business, which includes overall responsibility for the development and day-to-day technology operations of the GPS Apex platform. Having held senior technology and leadership positions at American Express, TD Bank, Fidelity and a Swiss Private Bank, Jerome brings more than 25 years’ experience in payments, investments and banking technology. Alongside this, he also founded two fintech start-ups in payments and investments.
