Steve Whiting

Head of Payments Technology, Soldo

Steve is a self-confessed payments geek, with more than thirty years’ experience developing real-time transaction processing systems and growing payments companies to scale. 

Prior to joining Soldo in 2015, he played a key role in establishing Postilion for S1 Corporation as a global retail payments solution and taking Alaric to the point of acquisition by NCR.

Having studied Computer Engineering and Artificial Intelligence, Steve’s formative years were spent in the pioneering days of payments technology, writing code and implementing solutions at companies like Logica and American Express. Today, these early payment architectures and protocols form the bedrock of worldwide payments infrastructures.

Steve believes payments is one of the most vital ingredients of a functional society and that by helping businesses in particular, Fintech companies like Soldo can be a powerful force for good.

At Soldo, Steve is responsible for the technology that connects Soldo’s spend management product to external payment providers and ecosystems, focussing on adding new strategic payment solutions to enable local and regional growth.
