Intelligent Environments, the leading financial services software provider, today announced the appointment of former PayPal executive, Deborah Davis, to the role of non-executive director to provide strategic oversight and help drive an increasing number of major partnerships.
Bringing more than 25 years of technology experience with 14 years in vice president roles at PayPal, eBay, Verizon Business and Symantec, Deborah will provide strategic direction and operational insight to drive forward Intelligent Environment's aggressive international expansion plans, helping determine the strategic road map and new market entry for 2014 and beyond.
Deborah joins the firm after leaving PayPal, where she spent three years heading up the global partner management and risk operations divisions. While at the firm, she worked with nine global partners and 2,500 staff, directing third party suppliers across 20 locations serving PayPal's global markets. She also ran PayPal's internal global credit and fraud risk teams out of 6 locations covering merchants and consumers in all of PayPal's markets. Prior to joining PayPal, she spent two years developing and deploying major systems infrastructure and improving the customer experience at eBay.
Following the announcement of her appointment, Deborah said: "With financial services and the payments world becoming ever more complex, I look forward to using my knowledge and experience from PayPal to help continue Intelligent Environments' growth. The company is at the forefront of innovative digital banking and payment solutions, helping its customers increase their speed to market in providing intuitive systems to consumers. It's a really exciting opportunity to build upon IE's strong reputation as a trusted supplier, accelerating IE's growth and providing market leading digital applications for consumers everywhere."
David Carman, Chairman of Intelligent Environments, said: "Deborah's extensive experience in the payments industry and knowledge of managing global partners will be invaluable. Her strategic direction gained from her time at one of the world's biggest payments businesses will help us supercharge business growth at home and overseas."
In addition to her non-executitive roles, Deborah is also a Trustee for SATIB Trust, a wildlife conservation organisation. She will spend several months each year in Africa helping to protect big cats by bringing her international business expertise and contacts to the conservation cause.
