CEO & Co-Founder
Reykjavik, Not Applicable
David Gudjonsson, Co-Founder and CEO of Handpoint is a pioneer in the mobile payments industry and a driving force behind the company’s continued innovation and success. From his background as an engineer and his deep understanding of technical systems, he has driven payments innovation using technology for over a decade.
From his beginnings in Iceland David co-founded a mobile solutions company which developed bespoke mobile-based stock management software for PDAs and other handheld devices. Working with international retailers such as Levi’s, Adidas and Pet Valu, David developed a keen understanding of the needs of Enterprise. He later saw the opportunity for airlines to unlock new revenue streams, which resulted in the company developing bespoke mPOS technology for British Airways, Ryanair, Finnair, Air France-KLM, and Icelandair among others. Under David’s leadership another landmark was achieved when the UK’s first Chip&PIN mPOS was debuted at Manchester United’s Old Trafford stadium.
From there, David has led Handpoint to develop the payments platform of the future. Powering ISOs, ISVs, and other payments partners, Handpoint’s revolutionary payments platform works with established and new companies in the space to bring integrated payments quickly and simply to market for their merchant partners.
With over 15 years of experience in technology innovation, he’s worked with companies from micro merchants to established international brands to bring true technological innovation and positive disruption to the payments markets and beyond.
