Segun Oni is the Founder and CEO of Card Programs International (CPI), creators of www.globaltravelwallet.com. As a leader in customised payment solutions in Africa, CPI delivers specific programs to meet the need of Governments and Private Sector organisations looking to digitise their payment experience. CPI’s solutions create economic empowerment in Africa for the financially excluded, through the delivery of digital payment solutions such as prepaid cards in order to reduce risk, and improve accountability, transparency and access to financial services.
Segun studied Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Nottingham University and prior to setting up CPI, held various Technology & Project Management positions at leading global organisations including Standard Chartered Bank, Shell Oil International, Accenture, BAT & GSK across multiple geographies.
CPI was born as a result of Segun’s concern about the dearth of payment solutions in Africa, and his passion for delivering solutions that improve people’s lives. Since inception, GlobalTravelWallet, CPI’s flagship creation, has helped to bridge this gap, and is currently being used by multiple African government bodies and issued in 12 African countries.
Segun is based in London and in his spare time enjoys spending time with his family and practising martial arts.
