GovTech leader PayIt hires FinTech veteran Ned Tobey as VP of Product

Kansas City, MO — PayIt, an award-winning provider for digital government, today announced the hiring of Ned Tobey to be the company’s Vice President of Product Management. Tobey has a 20-year career as a Software as a Service (SaaS) product leader, including 15 years in the financial and payment technology space. 

PayIt’s platform enables constituents to easily access government services from any device. Whether it’s paying property taxes, vehicle registration renewals or court citations, interacting with government has never been easier for constituents.

Expanding PayIt’s innovative GovTech platform 

“Ned has a proven track record of driving innovative financial services solutions that benefit both the end user and the organization deploying them,” said PayIt founder and CEO John Thomson. “I’m excited to have him leading our product team as we strive to expand our digital government solutions in the U.S. and abroad.”

“PayIt is truly transforming the way citizens interact with government and the way government interacts with the public,” Tobey said. “It’s incredible how PayIt has been able to provide a state-of-the-art user experience without requiring government agencies to completely modernize their back end IT infrastructure. I can’t wait to work with the product team to deliver even more innovation to government agencies and their constituents.”

Prior to joining PayIt, Tobey spent two years as the Product Management Leader for NCR Digital Banking where he led a team that created retail banking, business banking and mobile banking products. Before that he spent nearly seven years as the Vice President of Product Management for Q2ebanking.
