WorldPay, one of the world's leading payment services businesses, has announced that it has appointed John Allan as Non-Executive Chairman of the company with immediate effect.

Allan is joining WorldPay following an extensive executive career spanning roles such as the Chief Financial Officer of Deutsche Post DHL, Chief Executive of Exel Plc and Executive Director of BET Plc. He is currently Non-Executive Chairman of Care UK Ltd and Dixons Retail Plc and holds a number of Non-Executive Directorships including ISS A/S and the UK Home Office.

Allan has significant experience in leading major corporate transformations, including in high volume environments such as retail and logistics and across multiple geographies. This experience will be of significant benefit to WorldPay as it makes the transition to a standalone entity and positions itself to capitalise on the inherent growth and change in the market for international payments. WorldPay will also benefit from Allan's extensive expertise as a Chairman and board member in terms of strategic input, business development and corporate governance.

John Allan said, "WorldPay is going through some truly exciting changes that make it both an interesting and beneficial time for me to join the company. It is a market leader in a dynamic industry with big opportunities, and I am committed to capitalising on these using my experience and perspective to work with the WorldPay team to develop it as a standalone business with a great future."

Ron Kalifa, CEO of WorldPay said, "We are thrilled to announce John's appointment as WorldPay's Chairman. It was important to bring someone to the Board who has extensive experience of leading high potential businesses, a track record of success in international corporate transformations and the capacity and interest to devote to WorldPay's development as a standalone business. John fits these criteria and we are very proud to have him join our team."
