CEO, Payment Referrals
With over 25 years of B2B sales and business experience, and a personal sales track record exceeding $150m, Stuart Ballan is driven by creativity, collaboration, trust, adding value, excellent communication, and best in class results. Helping people, even when there’s no immediate benefit to him, is part of his nature. With this in mind, in 2013, Stuart saw the opportunity to bring the then emerging, global lottery messenger industry together for the first time, founding and organising the first Global Lottery Messenger Forum in 2014. Now in its fifth year and in partnership with iGB, GLMF has been rebranded to the Alternative Lotteries Forum, to embrace the growing Betting on Lotteries vertical.
For the last 10 years, Stuart has been immersed in the payment processing industry, having founded SaltarPay, and more recently, Payment Referrals, a company offering compelling payment solutions to industries that really need them.
Originally from England, Stuart has lived in Israel for the last 20 years. He holds an Executive MBA from the Kellogg-Recanati business school, is a published children’s book author and a keen off-road cyclist.
