Vassilina Lapteva Walford, Founder & Managing Director 

PaymentVibes is a boutique consultancy company, founded by Vassilina Lapteva Walford, building on her 20 years’ experience in Luxury Retail and Fintech and Payments.

Through her experience in building best-in-class payments organisations, Vassilina gained a deep understanding of the far-reaching opportunities that payment innovation brings to companies, as well as of the constantly evolving challenges that require a multifaceted expertise in customer-centric payment solutions, technology, finance, security and regulatory compliance. She also realised that many businesses have yet to grasp the full potential of payments. This led to creation of PaymentVibes with the mission to empower businesses to seize game-changing opportunities in the rapidly evolving world of Payments and Fintech.
