Payrix Chief Product and Technology Officer Awarded Top 25 Recognition
December 1, 2021 — The Financial Technology Report released its list for The Top 25 FinTech Product Executives of 2021 this morning. The leaders featured on this year’s list represent some of the brightest minds at the helm of some of the most influential tech companies in the world — including Chief Product and Technology Officer of Payrix, Randy McGraw.
This year’s awardees come from a diverse set of geographical backgrounds, including South Africa, Sweden, Poland, as well as other countries. What they all have in common, however, is an ability to collaborate and involve input from a wide range of disciplines and stakeholders — whether that be from marketing professionals, engineers, distributors, designers, or the customers themselves — in order to increase wider market adoption, expand growth, and, in some cases, catalyze industry disruption.
The goal is to celebrate the leaders whose achievements in the field of financial technology deserve to be recognized. When appraising each nominee, The Financial Technology Report paid particular attention to specific areas where they demonstrated unique product vision, the ability to manage across functional teams, and business acumen, among other areas.
As the Chief Product and Technology Officer of Payrix, Randy offers over 20 years of experience in leading product, technology and operational organizations that range from small startups to global service providers. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, Payrix is an embedded payments company designed for growing vertical software platforms and payment facilitators. In his current role, Randy seeks to lead the organization through aggressive market expansion and transition by developing a culture of excellence, nimbleness and collaboration.
Randy has successfully transformed businesses and developed “as-a-service” cloud products and service models in multiple industries. This includes his work at Blue Star Innovation Partners, Intrado, and West IP Communications. He is an avid supporter of the American Cancer Society, actively supporting the “Real Men Wear Pink” campaign focused on fundraising for breast cancer awareness and research. He earned a Bachelor of Science in computer information systems from Western Kentucky University.
