Arik Shtilman

Co-founder & CEO

Never satisfied with the status quo, Arik sees the opportunity in Fintech going beyond the need to disrupt financial services. Enterprises need to be able to think, develop, and launch localized financial services that can scale at a global level, directly from the cloud. He set about building a world-class team to deliver on this vision in 2015 and believes the future of financial services should be democratized for any business that wants to take part in global commerce. Arik founded ITNAVIGATOR a cloud-based contact center and unified communications platform which was acquired by Avaya in 2013.
