Krystian Kulczycki, President of a Wrocław-based fintech — PayEye, has become Manager of the Year. This was decided by the competition jury of the FinTech & InsurTech Awards. President Kulczycki manages a Wroclaw-based company that was the first in the world to introduce a proprietary payment solution based on human iris recognition. Although the service has only been available for a short time, after three months the pilot project already covers over 60 locations in Wrocław. The award was presented at the FinTech & InsurTech Congress, held recently in Warsaw. The Congress is one of the most important events in this part of Europe, bringing together the best experts from the financial technology and insurance industries.
“Experienced manager and specialist in the management of banks and financial institutions — President and Co-Owner of PayEye, a fintech in Wrocław — Krystian Kulczycki. Stoicism, high professionalism and a great sense of humour are the features thanks to which he is the leader of the team that has introduced an innovative and visionary solution to the market — a payment system based on the biometry of the iris of the eye.” — this was the justification for the award given by the independent competition jury, which includes respected representatives of the wider business — mainly CEOs.
“I am delighted that we have brought to market a real innovation that is generating such interest. The award is satisfying, but it is obviously a credit to the entire PayEye team and our partners who have contributed to the fact that the market has noticed us. I have the personal satisfaction that the award is decided by industry representatives, who considered both the payment system we implemented using iris biometrics and my extensive financial industry experience. This award is not only a great joy, but also an obligation to be even more active,” says Krystian Kulczycki, President of PayEye. “Our roots are firmly planted in Wrocław, but we are creating a brand with a global dimension. PayEye is an entire payment ecosystem that works based on human iris recognition. Our system is not only independent but also secure. We combine science with technology and take this combination to the business world.
