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.”

Experienced hands

Blum joins BridgerPay from NASDAQ-listed Verint, a US technology giant. He joined the firm in 2011 and worked for several years in

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."
