Mark Ridley DipFSM, CertICM
Managing Director & Co-founder
Mark began his career at NatWest Bank in London, England in 1991. Since then, he has held various transaction banking roles at a number of global financial institutions including Nordea, Wells Fargo, JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank. Most recently, Mark worked for BNY Mellon as North America Regional Head, Treasury Services.
Throughout his career, Mark has partnered with an array of clients, providing them with the global FX payment solutions that best met their needs. Clients have included corporates of varying sizes and in various industries, banks, credit unions, broker-dealers, asset managers and insurance companies.
Mark is a firm believer in the valuable role that community financial institutions and small to mid-cap businesses play in their local economies. He co-created GreenShootsFX specifically to offer these organizations a fresh approach to international payments – one that delivers competitive pricing, ease of use and greater transparency.
In 2015, Mark and his family moved permanently to the United States, settling south of Boston. He became a US citizen in 2018.
When he’s not responding to clients or obsessively checking FX rates or tinkering with spreadsheets, Mark can be found spending time with his family, playing golf, hitting the beach, walking the dogs or cutting the grass.
