Former Apple employee Trish Burgess joins Santandar after having spent a good 4.5 years in the tech giant. She reportedly had helped Apple to lead both the launches of Apple Card and Apple Pay.

Trish Burgess is not working with Santander for the first time as she has earlier spent time the Bank from 2007 to 2010 having held the role at securities in the Bank. Since then, she held senior roles in multiple other companies such as Visa and BNP Paribas.

She holds education in marketing and finance and also has an interest in electronics with a focus on telecoms. Since the competition emerging from Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, it has become crucial to have an international payment network. Trish Burgess will help Santander to build exactly that, an international payment network.

Chirag Patel, who is the global head of Santander digital payments, is the person Trish will be reporting to. Trish’s target will be to improve user experience and to grow the adoption of P2P payments.

Banco Santander is a Spanish multinational commercial bank and financial services company based in Madrid and as Santander in Spain. Santander is also the 16th largest banking institution in the world.

Last year Santander made a huge investment to be used over four years, a whopping €20 billion!

The Bank has also launched a blockchain-based mobile app made for fee-free, cross-border foreign exchange relying on Ripple’s xCurrent tech. One Pay FX, the name of the application, was initially launched out only for Santander’s customers in the UK, Spain, and the United States, which was later expanded to Latin America.

Santander’s huge investment to create an International Investment system is a fair attempt at competing against companies like Apple, and it’s new launches such as apple card and apple pay. With this investment, the stakes are higher than ever for Santander.
