Written by Hannah McGrath

Modular banking platform OpenPayd has recruited a former head of payments at Sainsbury’s as its new chief product officer.

The startup announced that Adam Bialy will lead OpenPayd’s technology development and growth strategy, while Sophie Guibaud, a former managing director for Europe at Fidor, has been appointed chief growth officer.

Guibaud began her career in investment banking before joining a growth capital fund. After launching food delivery service HelloFresh, she led product strategy and commercialisation at Bankable, before establishing Fidor in the UK.

Bialy joins OpenPayd with extensive experience in the payments and FinTech industry, including senior roles at Ukash, FIS, Raiffeisen Bank and Elavon.

Iana Dimitrova, chief executive of OpenPayd, said: “Adam and Sophie’s impressive experience and expertise mean we are better placed to accelerate the development of our customisable technology and growth of the business."
