Mark Skehill has been appointed Enterprise Sales Manager - UK and Western Europe at ECOMMPAY, a leading international payment service provider and direct bank card acquirer with its own fintech ecosystem.

This hire comes as part of continued growth for the company, which is also moving to a larger London office to support its ongoing growth and service its rapidly-expanding UK and Western Europe client-base. As an engineer of bespoke payment solutions for e-Commerce clients worldwide, ECOMMPAY has been invaluable to many businesses navigating fluctuating global lockdowns throughout the pandemic.

Joining ECOMMPAY’s UK and EMEA division with a remit to drive the company’s growth across priority verticals and break into new sectors, Mark brings more than 15 years of sales experience across the technology, finance, and software landscape. He will work closely with ECOMMPAY’s product development team to deliver a more holistic sales pipeline. Skehill will expand the company’s UK-based enterprise merchant networks, targeting those with an international footprint to continue to build ECOMMPAY’s global presence.

Mark previously spent two years as UK Merchant Development Manager at Klarna, where he coordinated the delivery of deal generation, onboarding, and sales, while working alongside marketing analytics. During his tenure at Klarna, Mark specialised in bridging the gap between retail merchants and the full suite of their innovative payment solutions. Prior to Klarna, Mark held a role as European Sales Director at Think Smart for 11 years, where he had secondments for both Dixons and Carphone Warehouse (now Dixons Carphone plc).

Paul Marcantonio, Executive Director of ECOMMPAY, commented: “ECOMMPAY has taken great strides against the backdrop of a challenging year to propel both the company’s and our clients’ growth forward. We continue to succeed in our mission to support our clients’ ambitious global strategies with tailored local solutions and hiring great talent is at the heart of that. Mark’s wealth of sales experience will be fundamental in not only helping ECOMMPAY to break into new sectors beyond travel and hospitality, but also as our clients expand their online business. His determination and leadership qualities are a superb culture fit for the team and will bring a fresh set of expertise when broadening our UK enterprise merchant network.”

Mark Skehill, Enterprise Sales Manager - UK and Western Europe, said: “The opportunity to join ECOMMPAY at this stage of growth and be a key player in progressing the business is an exciting prospect for me, and I’ll be using my retail background from Klarna to help the company expand more into the retail sector. Across the board at ECOMMPAY, everything from their data-driven solutions, bespoke client approach, and easy-to-use infrastructure, is seriously impressive and the business’s capabilities have a great amount to offer the retail sector. I’m very much looking forward to driving forward their presence in the market.”
