ConnexPay has appointed Blair Jeffery as its chief operating officer.
Jeffery will lead the US-headquartered payments tech company’s core strategic and operational teams, including product strategy, marketing and customer success.
He brings with him more than 20 years of experience in the payments industry, having previously worked at Vertical, LLR Equity Partners and Noventis.
On his new role, Jeffery commented: “What excited me about joining ConnexPay was the opportunity to support an already well-honed and hungry team of professionals that share a unified focus on changing the way payments are made in the verticals we participate in.
“I’m committed to getting in front of growth challenges before they become impediments to revenue and retention. As a team we have set our sights on building an industry-leading, world-class operational function, and now my job is to execute on that strategic journey.”
Bob Kaufman, founder and chief executive officer at ConnexPay, said: “I’m excited to welcome Blair Jeffery to the ConnexPay team. His many years of payments industry experience, both acquiring and issuing, brings tremendous value to our organisation, especially at this stage of our growth.”
He added: “This appointment welcomes in a new era of international growth for ConnexPay, as Blair will be instrumental in aligning our core strategic and operational functions as we continue to transform lives by simply connecting payments for our customers.”
This hire follows a recent $110m equity investment led by FTV Capital to propel its international growth plans.
