For almost 20 years, NMI has prided itself on being the technology provider that has helped our partners deliver powerful payment solutions from behind the scenes. Today this still holds true, but we need to elevate the NMI brand so we can empower even more partners. Which is why you’ll be hearing a lot more from NMI moving forward, and we’ve brought on Chief Marketing Officer, Leo Castro, to fully realize this vision.
Leo brings more than two decades of experience driving growth at both startups and larger companies. He has extensive fintech and partner marketing experience from his roles at companies such as PayPal and BigCommerce. Most recently, Leo was at Clover, a leading smart point-of-sale fintech provider, where he was Head of Marketing. He also has an MBA from Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management and received his BS degree in chemical engineering from the University of California at Berkeley.
“Leo’s deep payments background rounds out an already seasoned executive team, leaving NMI well-positioned to build out our marketing profile and exceed the aggressive growth goals we’ve set,” said Vijay Sondhi, NMI CEO. “Leo has already been a welcome addition to the continually growing NMI team."
“A big part of what piqued my interest about joining NMI was the fact that they have been quietly powering a significant portion of the economy through their partners in the last couple of decades. $68B in payment volume and over 1B in transactions last year - with that kind of size and scale, there’s a compelling story there, and it’s one I’m eager to tell the market”, said Leo.
“NMI empowers partners through choice in how they service merchants. It’s a refreshing contrast to the one-size-fits-all/take-it-or-leave-it approach of many less-established players”, he added.
Today, more than ever, having powerful payment technology that allows your end customers to pivot their business quickly is crucial. NMI’s ability to enable any payment, anywhere on one platform, coupled with our breadth of processor connections and white-label capabilities is enabling so many of our partners and their merchants to remain resilient in the current economic environment. “Threading the needle to raise NMI’s brand among partners during this crisis is so important and will continue to be as NMI helps to fuel the recovery post-pandemic and beyond that,” said Leo.
