Finance Magnates learned on Friday that Guy Blum has become a partner at BridgerPay. Blum will also take up a new role as chief financial officer at the payments start-up.
“After almost 8 years at a NASDAQ company, I felt it was time a for a change,” said Blum. “Living in Cyprus and having many friends
in the payments industry exposed me to it’s [sic] day-to-day challenges.”
“When my partners Ran Cohen and Yaron Hershcovich exposed me to Bridger I knew that I can fit in and I should join Bridger core founders’ team. The payment world has lot’s of challenges and by using the best technology with our great payment solutions partners we can actually make a huge difference for our customers allowing them to process better and reach much better results.”

financial controller positions.
In 2016 he was appointed chief financial officer of UTX Technologies. A provider of mobile tracking solutions, UTX was acquired by Verint for $83 million back in 2014.
Prior to joining Verint, Blum spent almost three years as an auditor in PWC’s Tel Aviv office.
“As experienced founders of a fintech company, we know that Bridger is a company on a mission, not just another ‘gateway,'” said
BridgerPay CEO Ran Cohen. “But we knew something was missing, a third person that can complete the perfect mix of partners that can lead this venture in all verticals.
“Guy was simply a perfect fit. Besides being an incredible guy, he brings with him massive experience and knowledge of startup-to-enterprise operations and unique financial and personal skills that will come in hand with the ongoing relationships with our long partners list of payment providers and acquirers.”
