Cardstream’s CEO Adam Sharpe Wins MPE Influencer of the Year Award 2021



Cardstream, a global independent provider of white label partner-focused payment services, announced today that its CEO, Adam Sharpe, has been awarded the prestigious title of Influencer of the Year 2021 by the Merchant Payments Ecosystem.

Adam accepted the award, expressing that “winning MPE’s public vote to become Influencer of the Year is a huge reward for the efforts and success that both Cardstream and I continue to enjoy. For the future, I am working on bringing the same values to healthcare that have worked so well for payments and commerce. And I look forward enthusiastically to seeing Fintech, Cardstream and MPE evolve further, innovating, thriving and progressing new opportunities as we overcome COVID-19.”

The MPE Awards took place virtually this year, with the public vote for the Influencer of the Year award going to the payment provider whose contribution to the growth and development of the merchant payments industry has been outstanding during the last twelve months.

Adam also stated that, “as founder and CEO of Cardstream, my Fintech career is also my passion, running first equals with my lifelong love of endurance sportscar racing. Both run deeply through my work, social and family activities, demanding respect, collegiality, and friendship within highly competitive environments. My vision and achievement were to bring those qualities to Fintech with Cardstream’s Open Payment Network. This unique ecosystem enables Fintech providers to promote a wide diversity of creative and innovative services to merchants and consumers. It also provides many established Fintech businesses and new payments companies with an ever evolving white-label platform that provides independent global connectivity for tens of thousands of merchants”.

The award was presented by the chair of the judging panel, Neira Jones, introducing this year’s MPE Awards with the theme of “resilience through innovation”.  The MPE Guiding Hand statuette emphasises increasing strength and cooperation in the face of adversity.
