Global payment company Verrency has appointed Beam Wallet co-founder Shezan Amiji to its global advisory board.
Mr Amiji co-founded Beam Wallet, a leading mobile wallet, payments and rewards app, but prior to that he founded EcoVentures, the Middle East’s first greenhouse gas reduction and management firm.
Verrency is looking to expand into the Middle East and Mr Amiji’s experience will provide valuable insight, said David Link, Verrency founder and chief executive.
“The Middle East is an important growth market for us and adding an executive of Shezan’s calibre to our advisory board provides us with valuable experience and insight as we look to expand in that region – and around the world,” he said.
Mr Amiji’s experience in building products from the ground up would also be a tremendous assets for the platform that fits on top of existing infrastructure, said Mr Link.
“Shezan’s experience in building Beam Wallet and his unique understanding of consumer behaviour, loyalty and rewards analytics will be tremendous assets as we look to expand the delivery of our patented API platform and marketplace products and services,” he said.
Mr Amiji was excited to join the board for Verrency, which he said was a true game changer and could solve issues for banks worldwide.
“The problem that Verrency solves – how to drive payments-related innovation rapidly across existing legacy systems and portfolios – exists in almost every bank around the world. And what it enables in the loyalty and rewards space is nothing short of groundbreaking.”
