London, 7th November 2023: Volt, the global real-time payments platform, today announces that Matt Henderson, former CEO of Stripe Europe, ex-Google, ex-Amazon, has joined as a Special Advisor to the Board.
Henderson joins at a critical inflection point for the company, following the successful completion of a $60 million Series B, led by Silicon Valley investor IVP. With the addition of Henderson, Volt will bolster its leadership team with extensive expertise in technology sectors including B2B SaaS and applied AI.
During Henderson’s tenure at Stripe, one of the world’s leading payment processing companies, he led the EMEA then wider international (non-US) business, overseeing a diverse range of functions such as product engineering, strategy, operations, and more.
Prior to Stripe, Henderson was a product management director at Google, following on from a successful Google acquisition of his shopping analytics firm, Rangespan. He led product for Google Play Console, the company’s digital distribution platform, in addition to the integration of Rangespan into the Google tech stack, and the reconstruction of its analytics product. Henderson’s career also includes his tenure at Amazon as Product Director.
Commenting on his role of Special Advisor at Volt, Matt Henderson said: “I have always been impressed by Volt’s approach to solving the fragmented infrastructure problem of account-to-account payments. They manage performance at the most granular level, yet abstract away complexity for their customers. I’m excited to join the team.”
Founder and CEO of Volt, Tom Greenwood, commented: “Matt’s deep knowledge of the sector, combined with his track record of success, will be pivotal for Volt. As we prepare for global expansion, having Matt onboard will be instrumental in helping us shape our product roadmap in order to help realise our mission for real-time payments everywhere.”
