As our Senior Vice President & General Manager, Media, Secil is responsible for the management of our FastPay business, a leading provider of payments automation solutions for the media industry that was acquired by AvidXchange in July of 2021.
Secil was serving as FastPay’s President & Chief Operating Officer when the company was acquired and had been instrumental in taking the company from its earliest stages to a leader in payments automation. Secil started his career at McKinsey & Company, working for financial services clients in Paris, Milan, and Istanbul. Following the earning of his MBA from Harvard Business School, he joined Capital One, where he initially served as chief of staff to the President and Co-founder before taking lead on the new-to-credit card business. From 2005 to 2012, he was at Green Dot, and a member of the early management team. There, he built the largest cash reload network in the country, bridging the gap between cash and electronic payments and subsequently building Green Dot into a $500M revenue business.
Secil serves on several fintech advisory boards and in his spare time enjoys traveling, hiking with his wife and three children, and competing in triathlons.
