Melio, a New York-based startup that offers payment tools for small businesses, has hired Prashant Gandhi, a JPMorgan Chase & Co managing director and Chase’s former head of digital payments, the company said.
As chief business officer, Gandhi will be in charge of increasing the startup’s business with financial institutions and software companies, Melio said.
At JPMorgan, Gandhi helped to build a team that managed digital payment products used by the bank’s retail and small business customers.
