Sahar Salama/ TPAY MOBILE
EX-Mollie CEO to lead TPAY MOBILE
The appointment of Gaston Aussems, who was CEO of Mollie, one of the most valuable startups in Europe, between 2013 and 2020, represents a coup for TPAY MOBILE.
UAE-headquartered mobile payments fintech TPAY MOBILE has appointed former Mollie CEO Gaston Aussems as its new CEO.
Aussems was CEO of Mollie, one of the valuable startups in Europe, between 2013 and 2020.
TPAY MOBILE founder and CEO Sahar Salama will move to group chairwoman as part of the reshuffle.
TPAY MOBILE offers mobile payments across the Middle East, Africa and Turkey and says its services are used by 28m active users.
Its technology is used by digital merchants and international brands including Google, Huawei Tencent and beIN, accessing and accepting payments from consumers across the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa.
Salama said: “We changed the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa for the better by delivering cross-border micropayments at scale, and significantly improving financial inclusion in the region.
“The time is now right for someone new to take TPAY MOBILE to the next level, and I trust that Gaston is that person.
“His experience of successfully scaling a complex, multi-country payments company, combined with his technical background, product-focused mentality, and global, entrepreneurial mindset, makes him the perfect person to execute TPAY MOBILE’s ambitious plans.”
