Payments Power 10 Logo

Every year at PayExpo Europe we recognise the top 10 Payment Industry contributors over the previous 12 months.

The Payments Power 10 are recognised for their on-going commitment to pushing boundaries in the payments sector, with clear examples of specific activity in the last 12 months. They can also be new players who, in the last year, have shaken up the payments sector and introduced game-changing products or services to the market.

The 2017 Winner

Congratulations to Suresh Vaghjiani, Managing Director of Global Processing Services (GPS) who was voted number one in the Payments Power 10 at PayExpo Europe 2017. 

Suresh and the GPS team are supporting some of the most exciting PayTech companies deploying first-of-its-kind products as well some of the largest prepaid programs globally. During his three years at GPS, Suresh has helped develop the company into one of the key processors in the prepaid industry with more than 140 employees.

How it works...

Round One
