    Former Apple Card & Pay Lead Joins Santander To Head Global Digital Payments

    An Apple payments products executive, Trish Burgess, has joined the Spain-based bank Santander’s peer-to-peer (P2P) global payments team.

    As an announcement from Thursday says, Santander is looking to expand it digital payments services in order to make them global. Burgess’ LinkedIn profile indicates she worked at Apple for 4 and a half years, where she helped to lead the launches of Apple Pay and Apple Card.

    Burgess Has Worked for Santander Before

    Burgess isn't a stranger to Santander, as she previously held the position of being responsible with the securities offered by the bank. Burgess was employed between 2007 and 2010. After 2010, she was a senior executive for BNP Paribas and Visa. When it comes to education, she studied marketing and finance with electronics, focusing more on telecoms.

    Back at Santander, she will report to the Santander Digital Payments’ global head Chirag Patel. The bank says its Digital Payments team is in charge with improving the users’ experience and the adoption of an international payment network as far as P2P payments goes.

    Santander is Committed to Deliver the Best Payments Solutions

    Patel said Santander wants to provide customers the best payments solutions. This is what he mentioned about Burgess’s role at the bank:

    “Trish’s appointment as head of P2P highlights our commitment to delivering best-in-class payments solutions for our customers. We know that innovation is powered by the most talented people, and we welcome Trish’s wealth of payment experience.”

    Last year, Santander dedicated about 20 billion Euros for investments in digital payments technology. Back in 2018, it introduced a blockchain-based mobile app that uses Ripple’s xCurrent technology. The app is called One Pay FX and was first rolled out for the bank’s customers from Spain, the UK and the US. Later, One Pay FX was made available for customers residing in Latin America.
