Also joining the company at this key point in its growth is Anschana Caravaca as Head of Gaming. Bringing with her 15 years’ experience working in the payments industry, and 7 specialising in gaming, Anschana will provide critical business development advisory services while helping to further drive the expansion of PXP Financial’s gaming branch.
Strengthening the Business Development division at PXP Financial, Dave Janse joins as Head of the department. A payments veteran with nearly 20 years’ experience in the industry having worked with the likes of Ingenico ePayments, Global Connect, and Travelex, Dave will be accountable for driving a complex and consultative sales process.
