Leading independent payment management group, Secure Trading, has appointed industry veteran Jens Bader to the newly created position of chief commercial officer (CCO).

The firm has also installed David Backshall as sales director, while Michael Lane has become Secure Trading's first channel and product director.

The newly created positions for Jens and Michael are a result of recent sustained growth. The firm now has two dedicated routes to market through both direct sales and a channel strategy, providing Secure Trading with greater capacity for further expansion.

Jens joins from Paysafecard where he was also CCO, having previously worked at a number of other companies in the payment sector, including Optimal Payments and Global Collect.

As CCO, Jens has been tasked with expanding both the sales and marketing teams across the firm's offices in the UK and USA.

David is a former head of sales at Sage Pay, and joins from Omnico Group. Michael was previously VP of ecommerce at Skrill.

Jens said: "Secure Trading is ready for expansion across Europe, the USA and beyond. It has solid foundations in place in both the UK and USA, coupled with an incredibly strong technology backbone. The future is very bright.

"We're now embarking on a recruitment drive, making sure we bring in the right people from across the globe. It's a very exciting time to be involved with the company."

Kobus Paulsen, CEO at parent company UC Group said: "These appointments clearly illustrate our ambition and growth plans. All three have the experience and knowledge to build our sales power and improve our go-to-market strategy.

"The newly created roles give us a solid structure to build on, which will be crucial as we enter a new phase of international growth."

Secure Trading supports businesses from start-ups all the way to large corporations, with particular expertise in the retail, gaming, leisure and entertainment and high-risk sectors. It processes millions of payments every year, boasts a payment gateway with unrivalled uptime and its broad offering also includes security services and back office solutions.
