Open Banking Fintech Volt Continues Steady Growth with CRO Appointment

Volt, which claims to be the leading Open payments gateway, has recruited payments veteran Matt Komorowski as its Chief Revenue Officer .

Matt joins Volt after nearly a decade with PayPal, where for the past three years he has “been leading the payments giant’s channel partnership business across APAC, LATAM, and MEA.”

Previously, Matt was “instrumental in PayPal’s record growth in a variety of senior commercial and leadership roles across Northern, Central, and Eastern Europe.”

Matt’s role at Volt will “ensure that the open payments powerhouse continues on its path to hypergrowth and drives the adoption of open banking with merchants and PSPs worldwide.”

Komorowski’s hire marks “one more step for Volt’s global growth plans, in response to a rising tide in global demand for real-time payments.”

His international experience in the global payments industry with PayPal “is complemented and enriched by previous successes in building Groupon’s sales organization in Poland, and his experience at the Boston Consulting Group where he honed his global perspective and strategic approach to growth organizations.”

Volt has assembled “a stellar cast of industry experts at its helm: its founder and CEO, Tom Greenwood, previously founded fintech payments business IFX Payments, and its chairman, Robert Kraal, was on the founding team and COO of Adyen before founding Silverflow.”

Volt’s global ambition and “proven” product-market fit have already led to “a record-breaking $23.5m funding round – the largest Series A on record for the open banking industry, which powers the company’s growth plans.”

Tom Greenwood, founder and CEO at Volt, said:

“We are delighted to have Matt onboard. At a key time for our business, he brings a wealth of experience in payments and in driving high-growth in scale organizations. Matt has proven his success in optimising revenue and strategic growth for global companies. Combined with his expertise in bringing innovative payments models to new markets, he’ll be invaluable in working with us to realise our vision of real time payments everywhere.”

Matt Komorowski, Chief Revenue Officer at Volt, remarked:

“My role will focus on driving adoption for our open banking products across markets and business verticals, and on building the right organization and hiring the best talent to start hyperscaling. Volt’s culture is centered around building an organisation where sales and product development interact and exchange information very quickly, ensuring merchants are getting the products that they need. As Volt continues to scale, we want to make sure that that part of the culture remains at the core of its strategy.

There is huge potential for transformation in the payment sector, “all around the world,” the team at Volt (and Komorowski) noted while adding that it is “driven by the growing need for consumers to gain freedom and control over their finances and their money, and for merchants everywhere to be able to securely receive payments in real time, via one seamless experience, without friction, and freed from traditionally high fees.”

Komorowski added:

“I am excited to become part of Volt’s mission to create ultimate payment freedom, for everyone, everywhere.”
