Meeting as a team of 19 for the first time this month, the board aims to increase its impact on the industry this year, driving change and innovation to benefit all ecosystem participants.
Members of The Payments Association advisory board are nominated and elected based on their ability to lead and influence the payments industry, and serve a term of three years.
The board’s first meeting saw members set the policy agenda for 2022, identifying key areas where the industry can come together to drive meaningful change over the next 12 months.
Trehan, who is UK head of compliance and the money laundering reporting officer at Banking Circle, commented: “The Payments Association advisory board plays an important role in guiding and steering The Payment Association’s senior leadership team, and I am honoured to have been nominated and elected to take a place at this important table.”
“I look forward to working alongside a team of influential and innovative business leaders to change the industry for the better, making it more accessible, sustainable and profitable for all.”
Trehan started his career in the RAF, where he trained as a pilot, before moving into financial services. He has more than 18 years of experience in corporate banking and fintech.
As well as his new position with The Payments Association, Trehan also sits on the executive committee of the Association of Foreign Exchange & Payments, and is involved in a number of industry initiatives.
