QRails, a cloud-based, API driven issuer processor enabling clients in the US, Latin America, Europe and Australia to deliver innovative digital payment solutions, today announced that Chief Technology Officer Brian Brinkley has been named as a Top 25 Financial Technology CTO by The Financial Technology Report.
This year’s awardees were selected based on a close review of hundreds of nominations submitted by financial technology colleagues, peers and industry professionals. Each candidate was further evaluated based on their professional experience and accomplishments as well as the caliber of their current organizations.
“Brian is a visionary who can implement,” commented QRails CEO Gerard Griffin. “He has the unique capability to anticipate industry trends and consumer habits well before they are universally adopted, then break the vision down, architect the solution, put it into practical application and execute. This can be seen throughout his more than 25 years of executive experience with companies such as Google and Sprint PCS, and is why he had the foresight to recognize QRails as an innovator in the industry prior to joining as our Chief Technology Officer.”
Brinkley joined QRails in 2019 and brought with him a decades-long track record of innovation and success. More specifically his company Zave Networks, which was devoted to digitizing coupons and loyalty rewards programs, was acquired by Google in 2011. He went on to serve as CTO of Zavers by Google/Google Wallet and is one of the first people to implement a SaaS solution leveraging the Google Wallet Cloud.
Brinkley’s experience, strategic planning capabilities and domain knowledge have been critical to growing QRails, and more specifically AnyDay, the company’s recently launched earned wage access solution, into an immediate market-leader. He was named as one of only 25 award recipients and is among a group of accomplished individuals who have developed deep technological capabilities over many years leading to their role as one of the most critical executives of their organization.
