Share this post

London: 08th October 2018 – Contis, the award-winning banking and payments solutions provider, has announced the appointment of Andy Patton as its new Group Chief Commercial Officer.

Contis offers an innovative portfolio of alternative banking and payments services powering challenger banks, cryptocurrency exchanges and other financial institutions. Patton will focus his 25 years of leadership experience across financial services, fintech and global consumer brands to identify and drive value for Contis’ partners. Based out of Contis’ London office, Andy will be responsible for building Contis’ partnerships with existing customers and delivering business from new partners.

Prior to Contis, Andy held several senior management positions across financial services, including Vice President of Business Development at American Express, Vice President / Senior Business Leader at Mastercard, as well as driving fintech opportunities for banking and other financial partners for a leading start-up accelerator based in Zurich.

This comes shortly after Contis was featured in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 for 2018, in September, and in the same week, it announced the acquisition of Paze Finance Limited. In that one week Contis obtained a UK consumer credit licence, grew its technology service offering and was featured in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100: the showcase of Britain’s private technology, media and telecoms companies with the fastest-growing sales. For Contis, it was validation of their rapid growth and continued success in their tenth year.

CEO Flavia Alzetta stated: “Andy brings very senior, global experience to complement the deep technical expertise Contis delivers to the alternative banking and payments market. This appointment will enable us to continue our rapid growth and transform the way the fintech space operates – helping our customers get better value financial services and life outcomes.”

Patton added: “Enabled by Contis’ award-winning payments and banking platform and additional products, I will be helping grow opportunities for our partners and clients – ensuring that the global alternative banking and finance ecosystem benefits from the fastest, most complete platform, in the form of our Canvas platform – as well as Contis’ other leading banking and payments solutions.”

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.
