Andrew Thornhill

Fintech entrepreneur, lecturer and visionary


Andrew Thornhill is an American businessman and FinTech pioneer, working in Georgia since 2007. He set up Global Clear Merchant Processing in Romania and partnered with banks in Eastern Europe to pioneer an online payment gateway and accompanying merchant management system to handle this very new business. Since then, he has moved effortlessly through banks, processors, large merchants and even governments in his bid to provide the most complete, end-to-end financial service to the online industry possible — in Georgia alone, more than $ 1 Billion of payments have transited through the companies, systems and programs created by him. Andrew has invested in many different businesses in Georgia and also serves as a member of Ronny’s Pizza Advisory Board, is a co-founder of the Cosmic Crypto Meetup and most recently was named ambassador to the Cardano Blockchain Foundation to Georgia.
