About the Host - Chris has more than 25 years’ experience in cards, payments and lending, with a career including notable blue-chips Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Citibank and Barclaycard.  He has a demonstrable track record as an inspirational and results-oriented business leader - developing and executing strategic plans, building and motivating high-performance teams, managing a substantial P&L, and delivering sustained bottom line growth.  Chris has broad-based international experience across Asia, Latin-America, Canada and EMEA, including time spent living and working in Belgium, Singapore and Thailand. He has been in his current role for 2½ years, splitting his time between his home in the UK and Avantcard’s two offices. 

Chris has a passion for competitive obstacle course racing, competing in the world championships in Canada in 2017 and, more recently, in the ‘Winter Warrior’ race which he completed in northern Finland last year.  He ran 13km, climbed 2 mountains (the second carrying a 10kg ice block the entire way), crawled through waist-deep snow, all in sub-zero temperatures, ending in an ice lake plunge.  He is a keen Newcastle United supporter, with a new found fondness for Irish soccer through our recent sponsorship of Sligo Rovers.
