With a mission to enable businesses and their customers to participate in the global economy by providing them fast and affordable cross-border payments, our client is looking to add a highly ambitious, motivated and hardworking VP of Business Development, focusing on the SADC region to their team of international experts. This is a chance for you to join a business really making an impact by realising their vision into reality, enabling a world where emerging and developed markets have seamlessly interconnected cross-border payments.
Their Vice President of Business Development will be based in Johannesburg, South Africa and will be reporting into the SVP for Africa. A key aspect to this role would be to drive partners acquisition within the SADC region. The ideal candidate will come with an extensive network and be extremely well connected within the Central Banks and Mobile Wallets space. They will be autonomous, self-motivated, passionate, possess high energy and have a strong business acumen with the ability to hit the ground running in a hands-on manner.
The business prides themselves in unlocking opportunities for millions of people and businesses in emerging and developed markets by interconnecting mobile wallet operators, platforms, merchants, money transfer operators, payment service providers and banks to facilitate seamless payments.
Our client plays an integral role in what can be described as a deeply fragmented industry. As a trusted, neutral and interoperable aggregator, they offer key payment solutions to tackle the speed, cost-efficiency and accessibility challenges for emerging markets. Without our client the partners of a payment transaction would waste time and costly resources developing their connections to multiple systems. Multiple connections would also mean that these actors have to charge higher prices, which could prohibit financial inclusion and the spread of financial services.
