MultiSafepay is pleased to welcome Pieter Stal as its new Deputy CEO and COO. Stal joins the team after 2021 saw strong growth for MultiSafepay fuelled by unprecedented developments in the buy-now-pay-later and omnichannel trends, among others. Stal joins our growing management team from European Merchant Services, where he led EMS on its journey to transform from a traditional acquirer to an innovative omnichannel payment service provider.
"The payment industry is rapidly changing, which creates competitive threats but also a variety of new opportunities. MultiSafepay is ready for the next strategic step as a mature payment organization," says Stal. Stal's leadership experience spans over 15 years in management roles with leading payment services organizations, including Ingenico (GlobalCollect), where he was Vice President of Sales in EMEA and later EVP Global Account Management & Vertical Markets. He also served as MultiSafepay's CCO from 2014 to mid-2017.
"After more than a decade of working with financial institutions and helping companies grow their businesses through payments, what I've seen is: the most committed payment partners ultimately fast-track their merchants' growth journeys. MultiSafepay's fast-adapting technology and tailormade services do just that."
"The tech team cares deeply about tailoring the technology to shopper behavior, and the account managers pride themselves in next-level support for merchants. I'm so excited to be leading the team at MultiSafepay in 2022 and beyond as we continue to drive innovation with next-generation technology solutions that help our merchants grow and adapt to the future," says Stal.
"2021 has been a rewarding year where we've continued to make it incredibly easy for merchants to become first-adapters in the current payments landscape. Pieter's expertise uniquely positions him to help us embark on a new year marked by exciting propositions for our merchants. We're all excited to begin this new year with him at the helm," says Olaf Geurs, CEO and Founder of MultiSafepay.
