Bruce Parker is a self-declared #paymentsgeek and has been a visionary and strategist for some of the largest and most innovative payments technology companies in the world. Bruce has created new products, built partnerships and shaped strategy that has moved the payments industry, in some cases, to tears. Bruce founded payments technology startup Modo in 2010 with the vision of removing friction in payments, and continues to work towards that vision for the enterprise scale merchants and financial institutions today. Bruce has the uncanny ability to connect the most diverse payments industry participants, and his company Modo helps others do the same. Oh, and Bruce is also an accomplished diner and can recommend the best restaurant in any city in the world, and the best valued (red) wine on their wine list.
