Tink strengthens senior teams in payments and banking with three new appointments

14 MARCH 2024: Market-leading payment services and data enrichment platform, Tink, has today announced three new appointments based in its UK offices, bolstering its senior leadership team.

Ian Morrin has been appointed Head of Payments & Platforms. Ian will have a dual role of leading Tink’s UK operations, and being responsible for Tink’s payments & platform business across 19 markets. Ian Morrin was previously VP of Payment Sales at Tink, where he led the charge to take Pay by Bank to mass adoption. Prior to joining Tink, Ian has held board and leadership roles at a range of companies including Bud, Expedite Growth and Clarify.

Ian Morrin commented: “The payments industry is fast evolving, with more businesses recognising the transformational qualities that Pay by Bank has to offer. Not only is it tapping into demand for convenience, but provides a safe and trusted payment method that is fast increasing in merchant availability and consumer adoption. I am excited to get started and look forward to this new leadership challenge.”

Andrew Boyajian has been appointed Head of Products for Payments & CX, a brand new role at the company, bridging product development with strategy direction. As the former Head of Variable Recurring Payments (VRP) at Tink, Andrew was also part of the VRP-focused working group of the Joint Regulatory Oversight Committee (JROC), representing Tink and the European Third Party Providers Association (ETPPA) to spearhead the progress of commercial VRPs. His previous experience includes working as Executive Director at JP Morgan.

Andrew Boyajian added: “There are a lot of promising things on the horizon for payments in 2024, both in the UK and further afield. Solutions such as VRP are unlocking new ways to help consumers manage their finance - providing flexibility and control over regular outgoings. It’s an exciting time to be central to product development strategy, building a resilient payments ecosystem that drives growth and delivers value to all stakeholders.”

Jack Spiers has been promoted to Banking and Lending Director (UK&I). Jack, who has been at Tink for over two and a half years as a sales manager, previously held roles at Volt, Klarna and Clearpay.

Jack Spiers said: “As the cost-of-living crisis continues, financial institutions can utilise new technology to provide the support their customers need. I’m thrilled to continue working with industry leaders to help transform the data-driven financial services landscape, and ensure that consumers have the user experience and access to finance they deserve - whether that’s faster onboarding or better lending decisions.”

Currently live in 19 markets, Tink helps banks, fintechs and merchants to build data-driven financial services, working with some of the world’s biggest financial institutions including Adyen, ABN AMRO, BNP Paribas, Stripe, Paypal and AnPost.
