Matt brings a wealth of international experience managing hi-tech businesses, which will help shape the next phase of Bango’s growth. I would like to thank to Carolyn for all her hard work at Bango. She leaves the Board following a strong 2020 that saw Bango deliver 70% growth and record profitability.”
Matt Garner, newly appointed CFO of Bango commented: "I am thrilled to join the talented team at Bango, at a time when so many growth opportunities lie ahead. The Bango virtuous circle strategy, where payment volumes drive payment insights - and vice versa - is compelling and the Bango vision of becoming the technology behind every payment choice is irresistible.”
