It has all the right elements that are required for hyper growth: products with depth and breadth that serve the entire value chain, long-term contracts from the biggest names in the payments sector, and an outstanding team.
“I am so thrilled to be coming onboard at this incredibly exciting time as we work to take the organisation to the next level of growth.
“Notably, in this current climate, smart financial technology couldn’t be more relevant, and especially technology focused around such a growing pain-point as chargebacks. It is very exciting to join at such a precipice where both Chargebacks911 and Fi911 have an opportunity to become the de facto solution for global stakeholders. I am so excited to be on this journey with them.”
