Romain Mazeries, Mangopay CEO
Before joining us, Luke was at Hyperwallet. As EMEA Sales Director, he played a crucial part in turning it into a global payout company. When PayPal acquired the company to enhance its payout capabilities for marketplaces and platforms, Luke further honed his platform expertise, heading up the company’s EMEA marketplace strategy.
Prior to his extensive Hyperwallet and Paypal experiences, Luke spent four years at World First, where he held numerous leadership positions, shaping his vision of the payment industry and how to help marketplaces scale globally.
“I am delighted to join Mangopay and bring my deep knowledge and experience to such an exciting pioneer in digital payment solutions. Unlike other marketplace payment solutions in the market, Mangopay's payment environment is tailored to meet the specific needs of growing global marketplaces. With the team in place and Advent’s position within the business, I’m certain we are well on our way to becoming the leading payment solution in this category.”
We look forward to scaling the platform economy with Luke! Welcome aboard!
