ConnexPay, a US-based paytech, has appointed George Hansen as its chief revenue officer.

In his new role, Hansen will lead the company’s “next phase of growth”. ConnexPay has expanded since securing a $110m equity investment led by FTV Capital in 2022. 

The company processes “billions in volume”. It hopes to double its revenue this year, following 500% revenue growth in 2022.  

Founded in 2017, ConnexPay offers payments acceptance and virtual payments issuing on one platform.  

Hansen previously worked as head of global sales and account management at PayPal, where he focused on mobile payments, cross-border payments, risk, lending, and data services.  

Hansen believes digital innovation is key to acquiring and retaining customers, as the world economy shifts online.

“This customer-centric approach and his extensive industry experience make him a great fit for our organisation.”
