Contis Group, one of Europe's leading end-to-end prepaid solution providers, has strengthened its board with the appointment of seasoned technology professional, Kirsten English, as a Non-Executive Director.
Kirsten has held various Executive and Non-Executive positions at various firms listed on the London, Dublin, NASDAQ and Oslo stock exchanges and brings a great depth of knowledge and experience in technology and strategic development to Contis.
The appointment follows a recent and significant programme of corporate expansion that has given Contis total end-to-end ownership of all implementation and programme management processes required to launch and operate a prepaid card initiative. By controlling all operations within the prepaid value chain, Contis is able to eliminate the risks and challenges associated with third party outsourcing and can deliver a consistent standard of excellence for clients across all areas of the business.
Peter Cox, Executive Chairman, Contis Group, comments: "We are witnessing huge growth in the market for prepaid solutions and the mobile channel is becoming increasingly important in driving that growth. Kirsten's counsel and experience in the mobile sector together with her wealth of experience in the wider technology and financial services industries will be hugely valuable to Contis. We warmly welcome her to the board and look forward to her input at this pivotal time in our corporate development."
Commenting on her appointment, Kirsten adds: "Contis has built a compelling proposition in recent times and is now just one of a handful of organisations across Europe capable of offering complete end-to-end prepaid solutions. Contis' track record of delivering solutions for major clients gives it a great foundation. I am truly excited at joining the board of this fast growing company and contributing to the organisation's future success."
