Lithuanian tier one banking and payments provider SH Payments has appointed Irmantas Kamienas as its new CEO.

He joins SH Payments with 12 years of experience at SEB, a financial group with operations across Europe.

Kamienas was most recently chairman of the supervisory board at Medicinos Bankos, a Lithuanian bank at the forefront of online banking, for five years.

“I’m excited to be joining SH Payments at a time when so many European businesses are hungry for expansion following the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic,” Kamienas said.

“We are committed to helping SMEs plan for growth and empower them with expertise and guidance, offering agile financial services and connecting them with world-leading banking services which have until now been out of reach.”

As new CEO, Kamienas will be tasked with growing the company’s client portfolio, using his experience and connections to drive the business forward, SH Payments said.

The company wants to focus on payments, treasury and asset management experience.

Operating under the holding company Stanhope Financial Group, a global fintech with a range of banking services, SH Payments is also making another addition to its senior team.

Philippe Werner joins the company as managing director to “enhance the strategic direction of the group”.

Werner previously worked at ABN Amro Bank for more than five years as a corporate banker in London, Amsterdam and Singapore.

There he managed a portfolio of international payment service providers, FinTech clients and FX brokers.
