Global Processing Services appoints Kim Ohlrogge as new chief product officer
Ohlrogge joins GPS’ executive management team after two years at digital payments company Nets.
On the executive management team, Ohlrogge joins new CEO Kevin Shultz, who joined in June and took over from Joanne Dewar, who was promoted to vice chair after more than four years in the role.
Ohlrogge brings more than 20 years of experience in payments, e-commerce and financial services to the role, most recently leading payment strategy and innovation as senior vice president of product at Nets Group in Germany.
“Kim is a truly outstanding individual who has a unique perspective in the global payments industry having spent time on both the acquiring and issuing side,” Schultz said.
“Her deep payments knowledge and extensive international experience will be extremely valuable to our team as we accelerate the evolution of our product offering to meet the rapidly growing needs of our diverse global customers and expand into new countries.”
Ohlrogge will lead the company’s global product team, accelerating its product roadmap, expanding to new international markets and “driving ‘next-generation’ issuer processing payments innovation’ for financial institutions and fintechs.
“I have spent most of my career in the payments industry and I am passionate about unlocking the potential of new cutting-edge technology to improve the speed, ease, and safety of the payments process for businesses and consumers,” Ohlrogge said.
“I’m excited to join the team with the broad remit of advancing GPS’s customer-centric product roadmap, prioritising our technology investments, and increasing our experimentation to see how we can further revolutionise the future of payments.”
