Anderson Zaks, an independent Payment Services Provider (PSP), has made several new appointments as demand for its services increases.
Grant Wyatt will provide sales and marketing direction for the company. Other key staff members have joined in support, software development and testing, enabling Anderson Zaks to gain PCI DSS v3 accreditation significantly ahead of most industry players. In addition, Anderson Zaks is actively looking to expand its channel with new partners, particularly those looking for the more tailored service that only an independent can provide.
Grant Wyatt has many years' experience in the payments sector. Sixteen years were spent at Mosaic Software and S1 where he held a variety of management positions covering every area of the business, dealing with customers such as Marks and Spencer, Waitrose/John Lewis, and Morrisons. S1 was acquired by ACI, the global leader in payments. After ACI Grant was COO at Ixaris, specialists in pre-payment applications, services and technology.
Iain High, Managing Director of Anderson Zaks said; "As one of the few remaining truly independent omni-channel payment gateways we are seeing significant increase in demand for our services, both in the UK and internationally. Grant brings extensive experience and a business knowledge that will enable us to engage with partners and customers to ensure that our services keep abreast with the ever changing payment landscape."
On taking up the Anderson Zaks assignment Grant Wyatt stated; "The payments industry is facing a time of huge upheaval as we see many new opportunities, for example the mass uptake of mobile payment options, as well as many challenges, such as cyber security. Increasingly merchants, independent sales organisations (ISOs), vertical market solution providers and even managed service providers (MSPs) are struggling to keep up with so much change. Anderson Zaks has a wealth of expertise in these areas and is able to provide good service for its customers and partners. I am relishing the chance help with Anderson Zaks' growth as they increase market share in domestic and international payment gateway services.
