Aran Brown

CEO

Aran has spent the last 15 years scaling and transforming payments companies. From accelerating Travelex’s growth in Europe through to its acquisition by Western Union for $1BN. Shortly followed by supporting Skrill's growth in emerging markets and FX, through to its sale to Optimal Payments for €1.1 billion. Following that Aran then launched HyperWallet in Europe, a leading marketplace payouts platform, pre-sale to Paypal. In 2018 Aran was made CEO of Ixaris Group, a leading virtual card issuance platform focused on travel marketplaces, now part of NIUM. Aran has industrialised everything across FX, payouts, card issuing, payment acceptance, and open banking - and now he is using that experience, along with the founding team, to bring the Paytrix curation platform to online markets, so that complex payment flows are no longer a barrier to rapid growth and entry into new markets.
