More Information

Steve Wright

Senior Partner, Stadia Solutions

A keen sportsman in his youth, Steve took the choice to develop a career in technology when it became clear that attributes other than keenness would be required to become a professional footballer.

In over 25 years in the payments technology industry Steve has worked with some of the world’s leading and most innovative payments suppliers. During that time he has held international leadership roles at ACI and NCR, as well as UK based roles at ICL/Fujitsu and Rank Xerox. At ACI he led the EMEA team that delivered growth in revenues from $30 million to $185 million per annum and delivered solutions to the world’s foremost banks and financial institutions.

Steve also has experience of global start-ups and consulting. He formed a global start-up JV with a French technology supplier and has also consulted for an international on-line foreign exchange brokerage and a number of smaller technology businesses from Europe and the US.

Retaining a strong interest in sport, though these days as a spectator, he enjoys time in the gym as well as time spent with his family, travel, theatre and music.
