Dean Leavitt is Founder and CEO of Boost Payment Solutions, a financial technology company based in New York City. With clients spanning multiple industries and a presence in 47 regions worldwide, the company utilises bespoke and proprietary technology solutions to help large enterprises optimise the way they pay their vendors and suppliers.
Everything that Boost does is oriented around bridging the gap between accounts receivable (AR) and accounts payable (AP). Even when they’re under the same roof, Leavitt says there can be “anywhere between a brook and an ocean” separating the two functions. As most of the clients that Boost work with are not payments companies themselves, it is vitally important for them to find the right technology partner so that they can focus on what they do best.
In this video, Dean Leavitt explains the journey that Boost Payment Solutions has been on since inception and says that the whole business is “maniacally focused on growth”. He is also effervescent about the potential for financial technology to transform the payments industry for the better, claiming it can help to remove friction from the cross-border payments experience and empower large enterprises to realise significant efficiency and cost savings.
