Faisal and I first met in Istanbul at a payments conference in 2014. We immediately hit it off thanks to our love of innovation, everything payments, and the impact technology on the banking industry. One thing I really appreciate about Faisal is the vast amount of content he is able to produce. He is active across social networks, whether it be Quora, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc. or his participation with one of my favorite podcasts Around the Coin. I consistently look to Faisal as a information resource when it comes to financial services.
