Kriya possesses a wealth of expertise amassed over a span of 25 years in the field of building technology divisions, with a particular focus on capital markets.

Kriya is a distinguished figure in the realm of payments, e-money, and financial technology, having occupied key leadership roles at renowned organisations including Newcastle Card Solutions, The Payments Association, Gibraltar E-Money Association, and, most notably, as the CEO of Transact Payments Limited for a period of nine years.

Our Chairman, John Taylor, expressed his enthusiasm for Kriya joining the team: "We're absolutely thrilled to welcome Kriya to Tap. Our company is growing at an incredible pace, and having someone with Kriya's track record and expertise is a huge win for us. He's well-respected in the FinTech industry, both in Gibraltar and the UK, and his decision to join TGL speaks volumes about our potential. We're confident that Kriya's extensive experience will be invaluable to our growth."

Kriya shared his excitement about joining Tap: "I've had a close working relationship with Tap for the last four years and have always been incredibly impressed with the platform, the team, and the potential. I'm delighted to join the team and can't wait to lead the strategic growth of the operating company. Tap has shown impressive growth through various challenges in the wider crypto environment, and I believe we're in a unique position to capitalize on significant opportunities in European markets and beyond. Our focus on customer-driven products and maintaining a regulated, security-first approach will help ensure our continued success."

Kriya will be working closely with our Tap Board of Directors, including Group Chief Executive Officer, David Carr, to take our company to new heights.

We are looking forward to seeing the positive impact that Kriya's exceptional leadership will have on Tap Global Limited, and we are excited to share our progress with our community as we continue  to grow and innovate in the realm of cryptocurrency and blockchain technology.
