Greg Connolly - Vice President of Information Technology

Greg’s extensive IT experience allows him to seamlessly finesse PayMotion’s systems design, production deployment, and infrastructure management. He is well-versed in mission-critical environments with a focus on uptime, and one of his favorite projects — if you speak Robot — entailed the reengineering of a 60,000-socket distributed grid AIX Chip design environment scaled to a 140 user Redhat distributed grid.

Greg loves a good adventure. He once conquered an 80-kilometer whitewater rafting trip from Ashcroft to Lytton relying solely on paddle-power. When Greg isn’t working or adventuring, he spends time with his family and keeps up-to-date with the latest NHL scores. He also enjoys coaching and playing hockey with his kids.

Michael’s 16 plus years of AML and Compliance experience started with a career at the Chicago Stock Exchange where he performed market surveillance and regulation. He then went on to work for Harbor Capital Advisors, ABN-AMRO, American Express and finally Capital One for 7 years, before joining PayMotion. While at these companies Michael was responsible for the successful development and implementation of enterprise-wide AML/FIU programs, drafting policies and procedures, and working with regulators such as the OCC and SEC.

In his spare time Michael is an avid outdoorsman, he enjoys snowboarding/skiing, mountain biking, hunting, fishing and running. He even ran his first full marathon on his 30th birthday in Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah, combining his love of sports and the outdoors.
