CashFlows Europe, the payments and technology group, is pleased to announce the appointment of Amanda Mesler as its new CEO. Amanda will lead CashFlows in its mission to become Europe’s most innovative and high growth payments business.
Amanda is an experienced and highly regarded business leader whose extensive professional career has encompassed roles at GE, Microsoft and Logica. She joins CashFlows from Earthport PLC, the British payments company, where she was CEO and led the recent successful sale of the business to Visa Inc. Amanda will join CashFlows with immediate effect.
Cambridge based CashFlows has invested significantly in recent years to develop a market-leading, cloud-based, omni-channel, payments platform for the processing and acquiring of Visa, Mastercard and other payment methods. CashFlows is one of a small number of independent businesses certified to process eCommerce and cardholder-present payments exclusively using its own technology, resulting in one of the most agile and efficient platforms in the industry. CashFlows Europe is majority owned by Pollen Street Capital, the independent alternative asset investment management company.
Martin Belsham steps into the position of Executive Chairman.
Amanda Mesler said: “I am delighted to have joined CashFlows at an exciting point in its development. CashFlows has developed a uniquely scalable and efficient card payments platform which is increasingly being recognised as offering industry-leading capabilities in a sector dominated by incumbents burdened by legacy technology. I look forward to working alongside Martin and the rest of the CashFlows team as these exciting capabilities are deployed into the marketplace.”
Lindsey McMurray, member of the CashFlows board and Pollen Street Capital’s Managing Partner, added: “Amanda has an excellent track record and has shown significant success in managing complex, high technology businesses. Her leadership and fresh perspective will be invaluable to CashFlows’ development and we are thrilled that she has joined as CEO to lead what is already an extremely strong team.”
