a message from our chairman

Hello, I’m Mike Chambers, the Chairman of The Payments Business. I’m the former CEO of Bacs and Faster Payments. Myself and a group of colleagues have started The Payments Business to help stakeholders navigate the changing payments landscape, be a voice for payments and signpost solutions. I’d encourage you to become part of The Payments Business and join the debate as we help shape the changing payments landscape and benefit from the opportunities that will arise.

- Mike Chambers (Chairman)
