U.S. Bank has hired industry veteran Peter Gordon as executive vice president of emerging payments product and strategy, the company announced late last week.
In this role, Gordon will be tasked with overseeing the strategy and product development of emerging payments products and services at U.S. Bank.
“Peter is not only a top leader in emerging payments, but his breadth of experience across banking and payments will help us create winning strategies that bring real value to customers,” said Derek White, chief digital officer at U.S. Bank.
While Gordon works to develop the strategy and product development of emerging payments products and services, the company said a key part of his initial focus will be maximizing the use of RTP and Zelle throughout U.S. Bank.
“I’ve had great respect for U.S. Bank throughout my career – in particular, the work that’s been done in emerging payments with real-time payments,” Gordon said. “Today, I’m impressed with the clear-eyed vision that U.S. Bank leaders have on where we will take emerging payments. I’m excited to get to work on the strategies that will deliver great experiences for U.S. Bank customers.”
Prior to joining U.S. Bank, Gordon served as chief revenue officer at PayFi. He has a deep background in real-time payments, including serving as chief executive officer of PRMPayments. He has held at companies such as Mastercard and RBS Citizens, in addition to founding a community bank in Massachusetts.
