Founder and CEO of PAYINC GROUP LIMITED trading as PayAngel.
Jones is a qualified Accountant and an IT enthusiast with rich broad-based Financial Services experience. He worked with the Barclays Group in the UK for 6years in Online Banking; Retail Banking; Corporate Risk Control; Finance and Product Control. Jones won several nominations and awards including nomination by the CFO to the Bank’s Future Leaders Programme.
Post-Barclays, he worked as an independent consultant in the treasury functions of Lloyds Banking Group (3.5 years) and The Co-operative Banking Group (2 years) resolving technical accounting issues, building Management Information Systems, high value and complex financial models and re-engineering processes.
As an accounting student of 20+ years, one would expect Jones to exclusively dedicate himself to the subject but his love for IT, building financial models and systems ensured he seamlessly combined Finance and IT effectively in a way that defined his career in banking. His interests guided him to study MBA in Information Technology instead of Finance and subsequently entered the FinTech space with PayAngel, where he now works.
During his undergraduate education, Jones started and led the publication of the Legon Business Journal which netted the Business School GHC40m at Launch and signed long-term subscription agreements with Coca-Cola (GH) and Ecobank (GH).
