Marketing the Next Generation of POS
Last month, we welcomed Nigel Dean, as our new Head of Marketing. Nigel has over 30 years’ experience in the payments and automotive industries and has previously held senior level positions at market-leading point-of-sale providers including Racal, Thales and Spire Payments.
Throughout his impressive career he has been involved in propagating pivotal payment technologies – such as remote terminal deployment and management, traditional POS, mPOS, SmartPOS, and most recently the mobile ecosystem leveraging secure consumer authentication on Consumer off the shelf (COTS) smart devices.
With a master’s degree in engineering under his belt, Nigel is also a well-respected technical author and public speaker on the complex nature of the ever-developing payments ecosystem.
Speaking at Merchant Payments Ecosystem Event
Already playing a key part in showcasing MYPINPAD’s technology, Nigel has been invited to join a panel discussion regarding the next generation of POS at Europe’s largest merchant payments acceptance conference – the Merchant Payments Ecosystem (MPE) event.
During this session, Nigel and other payments experts will be discussing what the future holds for POS, including topics such as; the cloud, smart and next gen POS, PIN on Glass and PIN on Mobile (yes, they’re different!) and POS beyond payments.
Commenting on his new role, Nigel said: “2019 will be a pivotal year for the global payments industry. Change will be driven by the introduction of ground-breaking authentication technologies, which will remove complexity and promote the exponential growth across the whole portfolio of digital payments. MYPINPAD is perfectly positioned to capitalise on this seismic event as it’s PIN on Mobile solution leads the field in seeking industry security approval. This year will see many significant announcements from MYPINPAD and I’m truly honoured to be part of this pioneering team.”
2018 was a crucial year for us, and 2019 is set to be even better. With our strengthened team, we’re continuing to be at the heart of increasing merchant card acceptance globally while also mitigating risk for both retailer and consumer using our innovative PIN on Mobile technologies.
