Pittsburgh, PA (PRUnderground) March 9th, 2021
Telos Gifting, the Pittsburgh-based fintech incubator behind GiftYa, Gift Card Granny and PerfectGift.com, announced today the hiring of Gerry Gilbert as the new Vice President, GiftYa Product Development. Gilbert has years of experience in enterprise fintech, payment solutions and e-commerce solutions with notable companies such as Blackhawk Network, Cashstar and Intuit.
“We welcome Gerry Gilbert to our Product Team at Telos as VP of Product for GiftYa,” said CEO Jason Wolfe. “Gerry has a proven track record of building innovative and high growth product portfolios over his career. As an enterprise level FinTech executive formerly leading Cashstar and Blackhawk Network, Gerry will be instrumental in the continued growth of the GiftYa enterprise platform and consumer website. We believe GiftYa is the next generation gift card, and Gerry is the leader to help us make this a reality.”
As a company, Telos has expanded their product offers with local gift card options and continues to expand their partnerships with top name brands and merchant service aggregators, like Square, to deliver innovative gifting solutions for consumers and corporate clients.
Gilbert explains, “I am very excited to join the Telos team. The groundwork that the team has laid to reimagine the digital gift is inspiring.

I’m thrilled to help facilitate that change by working with this team.”
