Helen Child

Founder

 

Having built a Prepaid Issuing Bank, I’m told we were one of the first to be awarded licenses by both Mastercard & Visa. I see many parallels with where the Open Banking space is now, compared with when I built a prepaid business back in the day!  I was privileged to work alongside an exceptionally talented team.  We built a Fintech before it was on trend to do so…

I’m the co-founder of Open Banking Excellence (OBE).  We’re creating a community, one where Open Banking pioneers feel can they belong, share their stories, learn and collaborate together.

I’m energised and excited to by the renaissance that’s happening right now in payments, with Open Banking set to usher in a new era of transformation and transparency.

I believe accelerated business innovation is sustained by coaching & delivering results through an inspired team.

I’ve the pleasure to work with a variety of international clients. I describe my role as collaborating with an executive team to make their plans happen.

Outside of the fascinating world of payments, processing and regulations, I’ve sat on the Counsel of Lancaster University, one of the top ten Universities in the UK, and I’m founding member of the Vision Board.  A keen cyclist, I love nothing more than to start each day with a blast on my bike or alternatively a run on the beach…(and to finish watching the sunset over the Lakeland hills with a G&T!)
