Leading payments innovator, Ukash, is further affirming its influential role in the payments sector with the selection of its Chief Executive, David Hunter, to join the advisory board of the Emerging Payments Association (EPA).
David Hunter joins four other industry stalwarts, elected following a poll amongst Gx member companies.
The EPA was set up by a group of influential companies and individuals to represent those in emerging payments who wanted to shape their future. Current challenges being addressed by the group include:
• Creating a global hotspot for payments innovation in the UK
• Ensuring an innovation-friendly regulatory regime
• Enabling direct access to clearing and settlement at the Bank of England
Commenting on his appointment, David Hunter said: “Ukash is continually innovating to deliver payments solutions that empower social inclusion in the global economy. I am, therefore, looking forward to bringing our philosophy to the EPA Advisory Board, where I am sure we will identify the opportunities to improve the customer experience as the payments landscape responds to the changing dynamics of the consumer marketplace.”
