Pelican is delighted to announce the appointment of Tristan Blampied as Senior Product Manager for the firm's innovative suite of transaction banking, regulatory compliance and corporate payments solutions.

Tristan joins from the Payments and Cash Management business at HSBC, where most recently he managed MPS, the market leading bank/vendor collaboration product initiative. Prior to this he was a Business Analyst and Senior Project Manager with Simplex Consulting/Bottomline Technologies. Tristan has acquired a raft of industry accreditations including ICM, PRINCE2, and the official SWIFT for Corporates certification, and brings over 15 years of banking technology experience. Over this time he has been responsible for integrating dozens of financial institutions’ and corporates’ systems into a multitude of E-banking platforms.

As Senior Product Manager, Tristan is responsible for managing the continual advancement of the overall Pelican product portfolio and developing new tools and applications. Tristan will have a particular focus on emerging technologies and solutions which can meet the requirements of customers in a changing regulatory landscape.


Parth Desai, CEO at Pelican, said: "We are delighted to welcome Tristan to the team. The company is currently flying high and the demand for our solution sets has never been greater. We are pioneering the adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language processing (NLP) whilst helping to protect our clients’ considerable investments in their existing banking and payments systems. Our commitment to continue delivering the most appropriate and innovative products on the market is our top priority and Tristan is integral to assisting us in achieving this goal."


Tristan continued: "My first major external engagement at Pelican will be spearheading our presence at the upcoming Finextra sponsored EBAday. This is an important event for us where we are also launching the first in a series of Pelican Points of View (PPV) discussion papers. This PPV, entitled: “Innovation in European Banks’ Technology Estates” has been created to provide unique insights into the existing challenges all firms are facing on the complex journey to transaction banking and digital payments transformation. We believe the PPV will stimulate some lively and interesting discussions amongst our existing customers and also with the wider EBADay audience". Copies are available on request.


Tristan concludes: "It’s really refreshing being part of a progressive and responsive team, and to have the freedom and autonomy to innovate and build new solutions that are aligned with client and market requirements. I am excited by the opportunities that working within an agile, growth fintech firm like Pelican presents."
