Curve hires former CEO of UK Payment Systems Regulator to advice the company’s leadership

Banking platform Curve’s executives have enlisted the help of Hannah Nixon, the former CEO of the UK Payment Systems Regulator, to tap into her knowledge on regulatory activities and relationships.

Curve is set up as a solution that brings in users’ cards and accounts in under one smart card app.

As an advisor, Nixon will guide Curve’s regulatory strategy and framework focused on the UK and EU. She will also offer her insights on a range of regulatory matters important to Curve’s growth, according to a release.

Nixon was the first CEO of the Payment Systems Regulator, the economic regulator for the UK’s £80tn payments industry and the first regulator of its kind in the world, where she built a high-performing organisation from scratch, driving competition and innovation in payments.

“Hannah’s remarkable experience working with some of the most respected regulatory organisations in the world is a huge asset to the Curve team,” said Shachar Bialick, founder and CEO of  Curve. 2Curve is continuously innovating and constantly pushing the boundaries of payments models and for that we needed someone of the highest calibre to guide our regulatory strategy as we scale our operation throughout Europe and the US.”

Nixon added, “I’m delighted to be joining Curve, a brilliantly dynamic and innovative company in a uniquely exciting sector. The payments sector is flourishing with meaningful innovation that can truly change people’s lives for the better. One of the key roles of the PSR is to open markets and drive innovation. That’s something that I am passionate about and I shall be drawing on my regulatory experience to help Curve navigate through the regulatory landscape as the company continues its rapid growth.”
