‘My mandate is to find great partners that can reach millions of consumers’: Green Dot’s Amit Parikh

Today’s guest on the program is Amit Parikh, executive vice president of its banking as a service division. In this role, Parikh leads the organization responsible for delivering end-to-end technology and program management to Green Dot’s banking platform partners, and building financial ecosystems for some of the world’s most prominent consumer and technology companies, like Apple, Uber, and Quickbooks. 

Parikh joins Green Dot from Apple, where he built partnerships and features. He was most recently Head of Wallet Services Partnerships, a role in which he led a team responsible for transit, access and new initiatives; and he served as Chief Operating Officer of Apple Payments Inc.

Just four months into his new role, Amit joins me on the podcast to talk about banking as a service and where he plans to lead Green Dot in the future.
