Bruce Mansfield, MD, eftpos, said the company had appointed seasoned product management executive, Marie Kellett, as chief product officer, and payments business development executive, Mark Rayner, as chief commercial officer.
Mansfield said that while eftpos CHQ and SAV remained the most popular payments network in Australia with more than 2.4 billion transactions at point of sale last year, the company was now moving into new areas such as online and mobile products, and services that use the new eftpos payment infrastructure.
“We have spent several years transforming the eftpos business, and Marie and Mark will now help us to leverage our new infrastructure and bring new products and services into the market for the first time in three decades,” Mansfield said.
“By moving to new platforms such as online and mobile, eftpos will continue to drive competition in Australian payments.”
Eftpos’ new national payments infrastructure, the eftpos Hub, was launched in September 2014, and has already processed more than 60 million transactions.
Eftpos says it expects the eftpos Hub to continue to grow as more industry players connect, with the Hub expected to be processing more than three million transactions a day by September.
