October 19, 2021 - While many people know about Intercash and our global payment solutions, there are a lot of people working hard behind-the-scenes in order to make your card program a success. In this article, we are speaking with Intercash's Chief Operating Officer, Parth Bhavsar.
What is your role at Intercash?
I am currently working as the COO at Intercash. I have a long and storied history with the company, in fact, my relationship with Intercash actually began as a client. Having already developed a great relationship with Aaron (CEO) and Patrick (Founder), the rest was history.
What does your job entail?
To answer this question accurately, first I think it is important for people to understand what Intercash is all about. Intercash is a FinTech, program management, and entrepreneurially-minded company with an aggressive growth strategy. With that being said, my job takes on many dimensions; I am a traditional COO by implementing and ensuring success of our day-to-day operations, however you are just as likely to see me working as a support resource by providing guidance and expertise to any of the concurrent ongoing projects.
How long have you worked at Intercash?
I have been an employee at Intercash for 3 years and part of the Intercash universe for nearly 10 years.
What do you like most about your job?
I like the flat organizational structure. I have the opportunity to speak to everyone in the business, but more importantly, everyone in the business has access and feels comfortable speaking to me. I've run out of fingers counting the number of times that I have had enlightening conversations with people within the business, whereas in more traditional organizations I wouldn't necessarily have the opportunity to discuss ideas with a decision maker.
What is your favorite memory from work?
By far my favorite memories are those where a project success allows me to shine a light on teams and individuals that went above and beyond to execute. I am a great believer in company wide recognition; our people are our success and they need multiple levels of recognition.
What do you like to do when you aren’t working?
My wife and I are raising three amazing, very busy girls and as a result I've passed on the torch of playing rugby and hockey to them......my old bones are made for watching now. 🙂
What’s a fun fact about you many people may not know?
I love to cook.....like really, really love to cook. I grew up shadowing my mom, who is an amazing cook across many cuisines. I am editing her cookbook in my free time now and am making my way through her book with my daughters. I also have another baby......my 1966 Mustang. I consider her my oldest daughter.
If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?
I believe I currently already have a super power: I give great hugs and really believe in the power of a good hug. Happy hug or sad hug, I think a hug has the power to uplift anyone in any situation!
