“We’re known for pushing the boundaries at Cushion, and it was important to find someone who was as passionate as we are about solving complex consumer problems in new and exciting ways,” said Paul Kesserwani, founder and CEO of Cushion. “Bobby’s extensive experience bringing payments and banking products to market, paired with his hunger for innovation, made it clear that he is the right person to lead Product at Cushion.”
