In addition to announcing our new carrier billing agreements with Sprint and Deutsche Telekom, we made yet another big announcement this morning that that we’ve added two seasoned veterans of the payments industry to our executive team here at Boku. Jon Prideaux, Executive Vice President for Visa, and Stuart Neal, Managing Director of International Development for Barclaycard, are joining the executive team as Chief Business Officer and Senior Vice President of Business Development, respectively.
Jon Prideaux was an early Visa Europe employee, joining the company in 1989 at a time when it had fewer employees than Boku does now. He worked with Visa for 17 years, finally exiting as Executive Vice President, Marketing in 2006 to work with smaller, more entrepreneurial companies like Boku.
Stuart Neal joins Boku after six years at Barclaycard, during which time he was responsible for growing their merchant acquiring division, the second largest in Europe with over 300 staff members operating in multiple countries. He is a prominent figure in the European payments market, with specific expertise in deploying innovative point of sale solutions.
