This is episode 11 of the Monetize Your Payments podcast and that was Jona Georgiou, the GM of Payments and Financial Services at LightSpeed. I’m your host Greg Myers and Jona is our special guest this week.

Jona is from Toronto Canada and came into the world of payments in a unique way as early in her career she leveraged her statistics background to help a company solve a chargeback problem. She been with Lightspeed for about 2 and half years.

Lightspeed powers small and medium size businesses – it is a cloud based omnichannel platform that includes a point-of-sale system.  

According to Jona, “having financial services paired with the POS and management tools allows merchants and restaurateurs to focus on what they do best instead of getting into the details of managing the POS.”
