Paysafe Group, an online payments account provider, has brought in Monitise's Gavin Haycock as SVP, corporate communications.
Haycock will be responsible for leading external and internal comms at the company, which rebranded to Paysafe Group from Optimal Payments last week in anticipation of moving to the FTSE250 from its current listing on AIM next year. Paysafe's prepaid cards can be used to pay online at thousands of retailers across a range of industries.
He will also work with Paysafe president and CEO Joel Leonoff, CFO Brian McArthur-Muscroft and the company’s leadership team running card solutions, credit services, digital wallets, e-cash, mobile engagement and payment processing.
Haycock was previously SVP, Communications and Brand at mobile tech business Monitise, and has formerly held comms roles at AOL. He was also a business journalist at Reuters and Dow Jones.
