Tech billionaire Dr. Andy Khawaja of Allied Wallet feels honoured to be given the prestigious CEO of the Year – California accolade. We invited him to share his inspiring insights into leading others and helping them to succeed in life, just as he has.
Firstly, can you tell me what Allied Wallet does?
Allied Wallet is a globally recognised payment services company, and we enable businesses in 196 countries to succeed by simplifying their payment acceptance solutions and enabling them to accept nearly any payment method. We specialise in multi-currency solutions, state-of-the-art fraud protection, and we lead the industry in innovation because we’ve created a payment services company that connects so many different payment methods.
Whether you need online credit card processing, mobile point of sale, a digital wallet solution, prepaid cards, or even ACH – we can do it and you’ll have it all in one easy to manage system. We make it simple to make money in an industry that can be very complicated and confusing. That’s the beauty in Allied Wallet.
How does it feel to be awarded CEO of the Year – California?
I feel very honoured to be recognised as CEO of the Year. I feel like my hard work and passion for what I do is recognised. I’ve been awarded and featured all over the world from the television shows to magazine covers to keynote speeches and expert commentaries, and it is always an honour. It’s an opportunity for me to give back; at least, that’s how I take it. I love to advise and mentor and educate people.
From my own team to entrepreneurs all over the world, I want people to succeed and do better. I want them to be persistent and work hard for their goals. When I’m awarded, it’s also an award for my team and it motivates us to keep up the good work.
