As a successful, self-made entrepreneur, Mike Monty knows what it takes to not only get a business off the ground but to have it make a mark on the industry.
Today, Mike puts his wisdom into practice as PayPal Canada’s head of enterprise sales, where he is focused on helping Canadian retailers and businesses grow and maximize their opportunities in the digital economy within our borders and internationally.
With more than 20 years of experience in the technology and payments industry as an entrepreneur, senior leader and avid investor, Mike is a skilled leader who can masterfully navigate a business restructuring and expertly elevate a company’s performance. He excels at helping companies go-to-market, grow, and scale.
Mike credits his business acumen to his travels, and the understanding that a diverse culture, open communication, continual evolution and empowered people are key ingredients to helping people and companies thrive.
As an investor and part of the leadership team in Hyperwallet, Mike played an integral part in PayPal’s acquisition of the online payout platform. In addition to his own business venture, Mike has been fortunate to learn from and be a part of the journey of other captains of industry such as IBM, FICO and now PayPal.
A citizen of the world, Mike was born and raised in South Africa. He lived and worked in Singapore for 14 years, spent a few years in Thailand, and finally settled down in Vancouver in 2013 with his family. When he is not working, you can find Mike trying out a new recipe in the kitchen, playing golf, snowboarding down a slope, or on a dirt bike with his two young kids.
