Payveris(TM), a next generation online and mobile payments company that offers a full range of bill payment and interbank transfer solutions to banks and credit unions throughout the United States, has announced that it has expanded its executive leadership team with the addition of industry veterans Rich Pelikan and Mickey Goldwasser.
As vice president of sales, Pelikan will be responsible for leading all of Payveris' sales, account management and business development efforts. As vice president of marketing, Goldwasser will be responsible for the planning, managing and execution of all aspects of the company's marketing, communication and public relations activities.
Pelikan joins Payveris from COCC, a New England focused financial institution core data processing and ancillary services provider, where he was responsible for direct sales efforts. An experienced consultative sales and account management professional, he has held business development leadership roles with leading financial technology companies including Fiserv, eFunds Corporation, BISYS Document Solutions and Deluxe Corporation.
Pelikan remarked. "I look forward to becoming an integral part of the Payveris team and using my experience to contribute to the company's future success, direction and efforts to revolutionize the payments industry. I welcome the opportunity to help banks and credit unions reduce transaction costs and reclaim their role as the trusted provider of payment services."
Goldwasser joins Payveris from Q2 (formerly Q2ebanking) a leading provider of highly secure electronic banking solutions for banks and credit unions, where he served as vice president of marketing and managed all marketing and communications efforts. A seasoned financial industry marketing executive, he has held marketing leadership roles with Continuity Control, Eclipsys and Open Solutions Inc. (now Fiserv) leading, implementing and executing company-wide marketing programs.
"I am very impressed by what I see at Payveris and the potential we have to make a real difference in the industry," Goldwasser said. "My whole career has been spent helping community banks and credit unions to better compete against Megabanks and money centers. With this in mind, I am excited that Payveris' has introduced an automated and cloud-based digital payment solution that allows for secure, faster, less expensive transactions with less risk of errors and provides financial institutions with a distinct competitive advantage."
With a fast-growing roster of bank and credit union clients, Payveris has brought to market an innovative and proven ePayment option that provides clients with bill payment and money movement capabilities for their online and mobile banking customers at lower costs than other traditional processing solutions. With the only cloud-based payment-processing platform in the market, Payveris' ePayment technology provides community financial institutions with a more integrated offering that creates a better user experience than what is currently available today.
Payveris' services are available through application program interfaces (APIs) that provide distribution partners and financial institution clients with a library of moveable widgets to innovate and control the remote user's experience.
"The valuable industry experience and key relationships that Rich and Mickey have cultivated over the years are a welcome addition to our team," Fran Duggan, President of Payveris, explained. "Both of their understanding of the market, the needs of our clients and our industry will further strengthen our ongoing efforts as we seek to provide banks and credit union with a means to better facilitate commerce and move money. As Payveris continues its rapid growth, Rich and Mickey will each play critical roles in helping us address the needs in the industry for better online and mobile payment solutions. We are delighted that they have joined our team."
