Ayokunle (Ayo) Omojola joins Pinwheel’s Board of Directors

October 11, 2022

Ayo is a veteran of the fintech industry and a master product builder who spent time co-creating and scaling Square's popular Cash Card as one of its founding product managers. An established founder, Ayo created in-app messaging solution, Hipmob, leading the company through its acquisition by Conversocial.com. Ayo’s most recent venture into the healthcare market brought him to Carbon Health where he currently serves as Chief Product Officer.

“Ayo is a force in fintech and product innovation and we couldn’t be more excited to have him in our corner,” said Kurtis Lin, co-founder and CEO of Pinwheel. “I first met Ayo in 2020 and we instantly connected over our shared passion for helping consumers get more control over where their paychecks go. I know that Ayo deeply understands the opportunity for payroll APIs to dramatically transform our financial ecosystem. His perspective and experience will be invaluable as we continue to drive our mission of creating a fairer financial system.”

“I believe the opportunity to give consumers control over their payroll data will unlock a significant amount of innovation in financial services,” said Omojola. “APIs that enable consumers to control where their paychecks go and how their income data is used will in turn result in more financially equitable tools and services because fintechs can grow faster, compelling incumbent banks to offer more benefits to consumers. I joined Pinwheel’s board to do everything I can to help Kurt and the team bring this vision to life.”

Ayo is passionate about bringing positive, generation-spanning change by assisting ambitious teams as they work to solve problems that will ​​solve fundamental, deep, and unarticulated needs. He enjoys supporting many companies that fit this bill as an angel investor, even co-founding SquareAngels and the YC Alumni Syndicate to help connect like-minded founders and investors.

The Pinwheel team is excited to benefit from Ayo’s dynamic perspective and wealth of expertise in building and scaling products for mass adoption. Ayo will be a key player in shaping the future of Pinwheel and the fintech industry at large.
