Matt Frenchman

CEO & Co-Founder

After 16 years in investment banking at JPMorgan and Credit Suisse, Matt immersed himself in digital finance, specifically within the games ecosystem. He is passionate about bringing fintech to the games and app economy to help great businesses to fly, in a way that doesn’t currently exist. Matt’s favourite games are sports,  hyper-casual (especially merge games) and solitaire (totally addicted).  He only just has the edge over his 12 year old on FIFA, but probably not for long!

He even tried his hand at developing games but didn’t have enough money for UA – hence why he feels so strongly about what Sugar is doing.
