Paysafe, a UK-based payments fintech, has appointed Nicole Carroll as its first ever chief strategy and innovation officer.
Her primary responsibilities will be to further develop the company’s corporate vision and long-term growth strategy, and lead on its product innovation and capital expenditure.
Carroll joins Paysafe from Experian, where she was chief product officer for the company’s decisions analytics business.
Prior to that, Carroll worked for Visa, Discover Financial Services and Citi Group.
On the new appointment, Bruce Lowthers, Paysafe’s chief executive officer, said: “Nicole is a highly talented executive with a flair for understanding both evolving customer needs and the potential of new technologies.
“She brings a very impressive track record of delivering exciting new innovations for the companies she has previously worked for, and this experience will be invaluable as we continue on our path to transform Paysafe and execute on our long-term growth plan.”
Carroll added: “I believe Paysafe has a lot of potential to re-position itself for long-term growth by building on the work Bruce and his team have started, and fully leveraging its unique payments network and digital assets.
“I look forward to playing my part on that journey and seeing Paysafe return to its highly innovative and entrepreneurial roots.”
Lowthers joined the company 10 months ago. Carroll is his latest leadership hire, after appointing Alex Gersh as chief financial officer and Rob Gatto as chief revenue officer.
