Jeff Parker will drive Paymentology’s worldwide expansion

Paymentology appoints Jeff Parker as CEO

Paymentology, a global issuer-processor, has appointed Jeff Parker as its new chief executive officer to drive its worldwide expansion. Parker, with more than 20 years of international experience, will succeed the interim co-chief executive officers Abe Smith and Angy Watson. 

Parker’s extensive global background, having lived and worked on four continents, positions him well for the role. In his previous position as senior vice president and managing director international at Marqeta, he was responsible for developing the company’s go-to-market and operational functions internationally. He also contributed to advancing Marqeta’s service offerings across key markets in Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.

Before joining Marqeta, Parker was chief executive officer at World First, an international payments company, where he led expansions into new markets. He has also held senior roles at financial giants like JP Morgan, Accenture and OFX.  

Commenting on Parker’s appointment, Rowan Brewer, chairman at Paymentology, said: “We embarked on a thorough search for our new CEO, seeking an individual who not only embodies the core values of Paymentology’s culture but also possesses a proven record of success.  

“Jeff emerged as the perfect fit, with his wealth of international payments experience from prominent global organisations. We are confident that Jeff will not only uphold our values but also spearhead our mission of positively impacting lives globally.” 

On his new role, Parker said: “I am delighted to take on the role of CEO at Paymentology, an organisation that has already created a strong global value proposition in the payments space.  

“Their rapid growth speaks volumes, and my focus will be on building Paymentology’s position as the global neo-processor of choice for fintechs, telcos, corporates and challenger banks.  

“Together, we will continue our growth trajectory, ensuring that Paymentology continues to provide next-generation payment solutions on a global scale. I look forward to collaborating with this exceptional team and contributing to Paymentology’s ongoing success.”
