SumUp, the leading mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) company, today announces Ryan O’Connor as Managing Director of the U.S., underscoring the company's commitment to accelerating growth in the United States and North America.

Mr. O’Connor joins SumUp from FIS Global, where he served as Vice President Strategic Partnerships. 

Mr. O’Connor has more than 20 years of experience from his own business enterprises, as well as various senior industry level positions including Vantiv, Elavon, iPayment, and most recently FIS Global. During his tenure at these firms, Mr. O’Connor held senior roles of Vice President of Product, SVP Business and Corporate Development, and VP of Global Strategic Partnerships. 

“I am honored and excited to be joining the SumUp team and helping lead the company in their drive to creating a global card brand. For the past several years, I’ve been looking for the right opportunity to combine my entrepreneurial background, with my 20 plus years in corporate America. SumUp has provided the ideal launching pad to pivot in my career out of “traditional” payments,” said Ryan O’Connor. 

“After a comprehensive executive search, Ryan emerged from a deep pool of highly skilled candidates as the clear choice to lead SumUp’s operations in the U.S. His reputation as a highly-regarded leader in the global fintech arena with in depth market knowledge were instrumental in our decision to have him serve for us. SumUp will be opening a U.S. HQ in Boulder, Colorado and we are thrilled for Ryan to lead this initiative,” said Daniel Klein, CEO and co-founder of SumUp.

Mr. O’Connor graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce in Business Management & Finance from Santa Clara University.
