Currency Cloud crew was out in full force last night at the FSTech and Retail Systems Payments ceremony, accepting the award for Best Online Payments System (merchant category).

The seven of us were joined at our table by Jim Warner with Centtrip, Rob Groves from Infinity International and Matt Dean with deVere Foreign Exchange. Our very own Richard Arundel was instrumental in starting the “no hands dessert” eating challenge, much to the dismay of the attentive service staff who were attempting to put silverware down! Big shout out to the winner Ashlie Tridgell, Currency Cloud’s Operational manager!

Our CEO, Mike Laven, accepted the award on behalf of Currency Cloud, albeit without a tie (his fashion sense has never been his strongest point). Mike and the rest of Currency Cloud are hugely grateful to the judging panel for recognising our contribution to financial services, considering we were being measured against longer established players.

It was an absolute honour to be among friends and fellow pioneers, applauding some excellent projects and innovations in the payments industry.

We cannot wait to do it all again next year! Huge thank you to the organisers and event sponsors.
