Green Dot names Dan Henry as president, CEO.
Green Dot Corp., a provider of prepaid debit cards and more recently a bank holding company, announced that Dan Henry is the company’s new president and chief executive officer.
Henry was CEO at Netspend, also a provider of prepaid debit cards, from 2008-2014 and a co-founder of Euronet Worldwide, a provider of electronic payment services.
“Dan is a highly regarded leader and accomplished executive with operational expertise and over two decades of deep experience in the fintech space,” William Jacobs, the board chair and interim CEO, said in a company release. “He is also an innovator who has spearheaded, built and operated two publicly traded payments companies.”
Green Dot’s founder and CEO Steve Streit stepped down in December. The company last year launched an FDIC-insured mobile banking service.
“I am honored to join Green Dot and look forward to working with the company’s many talented team members to continue driving the mission of transforming the financial services industry through powerful partnerships and innovative products and services,” Henry said in the release. “I see significant potential to build upon Green Dot’s solid foundation that combines its bank charter with its market leading Banking as a Service fintech platform.”
