Guy Blum Joins BridgerPay as Partner and CFO

June 18, 2019

BridgerPayAs per the recent announcement made by payment solutions provider BridgerPay, the firm now has a new Chief Financial Officer and Partner – Guy Blum. As per the details in his LinkedIn profile, Guy Blum’s official designation at the payment startup is “Co-Founder and CFO”. Prior to joining BridgerPay, Blum remained a part of US-based NASDAQ listed IT and Tech firm Verint where he served for more than seven years.

He joined Verint in early days of his career, having resigned from Pricewaterhouse Cooper’s auditing firm where he served as one of its Auditors post-graduation. He served in Verint for a period of 4 years and six months since joining the firm in November 2011. However, he was promoted to the role of Chief Financial Officer when Verint purchased Cyprus based telecommunications service provider UTX Technologies back in 2014.

Verint purchased UTX Technologies Ltd for US$ 83 Million back in 2014. He remained at UTX technologies for more than three years, having resigned from the role of its CFO earlier this year in the month of April. When speaking about his decision to resign from UTX and join BridgerPay, Guy Blum commented, “After almost 8 years at a NASDAQ company, I felt it was time for a change.

Living in Cyprus and having many friends in the payments industry exposed me to its day-to-day challenges. When my partners Ran Cohen and Yaron Hershcovich exposed me to Bridger I knew that I can fit in and I should join Bridger core founders’ team. The payment world has lots of challenges and by using the best technology with our great payment solutions partners we can actually make a huge difference for our customers allowing them to process better and reach much better results”.

Speaking about Blum’s decision to join BridgerPay, CEO Ran Cohen commented, “As experienced founders of a fintech company, we know that Bridger is a company on a mission, not just another gateway. But we knew something was missing, a third person that can complete the perfect mix of partners that can lead this venture in all verticals. Guy was simply a perfect fit. Besides being an incredible guy, he brings with him massive experience and knowledge of startup-to-enterprise operations and unique financial and personal skills that will come in hand with the ongoing relationships with our long partners’ list of payment providers and acquirers”.
