Pride Spotlight: Pierre Lion, Chief Growth Officer at Mangopay

To celebrate Pride Month, Broadgate’s Josh Duggan spoke with Pierre Lion, Chief Growth Officer at Mangopay. Learn about Pierre's experience joining Mangopay in its inception, as well as key career highlights and his take on Pride.

I am Pierre Lion, Chief Growth Officer at Mangopay, a modular and flexible payment technology infrastructure provider for platforms. I joined the business during its inception in 2012, bringing payments industry experience from PayPal. I was inspired by the opportunity to shape the vision, mission and strategy of Mangopay, and I have enjoyed building our profile initially in France, and now across Europe, leading the growth and international expansion strategy and managing the Solution Engineers, CSM and Support teams.

Our differences are a source of strength for us and we can accomplish so much more together if we include everyone, which is why I am proud to have helped to embed diversity as a core value of our company. We’ve achieved this by implementing our D&I charter, signed and followed by all employees, and building on our efforts through training and regular initiatives, around Pride, Women’s Day and Accessibility Day.

 I was delighted to be part of the Innovate Finance Pride in Fintech Powerlist in recognition of my contributions towards the LGBTQIA+ community in the industry. I wear Pride as a badge of honour - it’s who I am, my relationships and how I show up in the workplace. For me, Pride is about embracing your unique identity, showing up as your full self and advocating for change that will ultimately lead to a fairer, more equal world.
