Chief Technology Officer

Kunal Patel

Kunal has spent his career building high-performance teams for startups as well as large organizations, with a focus on delivery and execution. His experience started over 20 years ago while working with up-and-coming startups in Georgia Tech’s Advanced Technology Development Center. His propensity for growing small businesses continued later in his career when he provided scalable solutions to large institutions in the higher education and financial services industries.

For the last decade, Kunal has worked on both sides of the financial services coin. He has built and managed acquiring platforms focused on merchant onboarding and underwriting for a leading electronic payments company. Kunal’s most recent projects include the ground-up design and implementation of an award-winning issuing platform for corporate payments, leveraging cutting-edge big data processing, orchestration, and automation services.

Kunal holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science from the Georgia Institute of Technology, a bachelor’s degree in management information systems from Kennesaw State University, and a bachelor’s degree in multimedia and web design from The Art Institutes.

Kunal and his wife live in the Atlanta area, where they spend time chasing golf balls, tennis balls, soccer balls, and their two young boys around the backyard. They are big fans of the championship-winning Atlanta United FC.
