Barclaycard US has appointed payments industry veteran Patrick Wright as chief operating officer.

As COO, Wright will oversee operations, technology, customer service and quality management for the US payments business of the UK-headquartered bank.

Wright brings more than 25 years of experience in operations and technology roles to his new post. A former US president and chief executive officer of Wincor-Nixdorf, Wright joins Barclayard US from Tuyet Consulting, a financial advisory firm he founded in 2010. Prior to that, he spent 17 years at JP Morgan Chase in a variety of roles in retail banking, information technology, e-commerce, service centre management, control and audit.

In his new post, Wright will jointly report to Barclaycard US chief executive Amer Sajed based in Wilmington, Delaware and Barclaycard's global COO Ian Buchanan , based in London.

Says Buchanan: "Patrick's ability to leverage technology to better serve customers, coupled with his broad business perspective make him a tremendous asset to Barclaycard US. His appointment aligns with our vision of building a dynamic leadership team for our payments business in the US."

Wright joins the firm just five months after the appointment of a new CFO in Gerlad Pavelich, and chief marketing officer Peggy Maher.
