22 februarie 2021

Mark Carney, the former Governor of the Bank of England and Bank of Canada, joins the Board of Directors of the web payments Stripe, according to a press release.

Ten years since launching, millions of businesses in over 40 countries now use Stripe’s infrastructure to power hundreds of billions of euros of payments from customers in over 140 countries and territories around the world.

Mark Carney (photo) said: “The very nature of commerce has changed over the past decade. Stripe has been at the forefront of enabling this new digital economy, providing innovative and resilient global payment solutions to businesses large and small. In the process, Stripe has been breaking down barriers to global trade and accelerating economic output. I look forward to supporting Stripe over the coming years as they build the global infrastructure that enables the internet to become the engine for strong and inclusive economic growth.”

Regulated in multiple jurisdictions and partnering with several dozen financial institutions around the world, Stripe will benefit from Mark Carney’s extensive experience of global financial systems and governance.

“As Stripe enters its second decade, Mark’s unparalleled experience of the highest levels of financial services and central banking will be of enormous benefit as we work to grow the GDP of the internet.” said John Collison, co-founder and President of Stripe. “From his desire to see faster settlement systems to his commitment to climate change mitigation, Mark’s values align with ours. We’re delighted he’s joining our Board of Directors.”
