Young, vibrant & driven team, here to positively impact the payments community

Our Story

In 2014, the PaymentGenes founding team recognised the need for ambitious companies to have the right payments professionals & expertise helping them leap to accelerated growth. Our origins, our "genes", lay deeply-rooted in payments as our initial founders are payment specialists coming from Adyen, Braintree, Ingenico, Paysafe Group, and ICS.

To this day, PaymentGenes employs widely-recognized industry leaders helping us positively impact the payments community through business & personal growth.


The PaymentGenes founders continued to further positively impact the industry with personal involvement in companies such as Dimebox (acquired by Verifone), and CreditClick. In 2020, a strategic joint venture with Payments Insiders extended the fundamental knowledge and line of service offering.
