CreditCall, the payment services provider, is expanding its US team with the appointment of Richard Roscher as EMV business development director in America, as the country belatedly moves towards the global EMV card payment standard by the 2015 deadline.
Roscher joins CreditCall with extensive payments experience and technology knowledge over his 15 year career which has included stints at WorldPay and Chase Paymentech, as well as consulting for numerous major brands. He will spearhead CreditCall’s initiatives to support EMV migration in the US and attempts to win business in this developing area.
"With liability shifts and mandates looming, I feel CreditCall is in a unique position because of its more than 10 years of history in the global EMV space, and existing track record as a payment services provider (PSP) gateway in the US,” said Roscher. “I am confident we can provide the expertise to be able to help processors, value-added resellers (VARs) and point-of-sale (PoS) companies migrate over to support EMV and the near field communication (NFC) contactless standard too.”
According to his boss, CreditCall chief executive officer (CEO), Peter Turner, the new hire has a great track record, adding that: “As CreditCall continues to expand in the US, Richard’s skill and market knowledge will be pivotal in allowing us to accelerate our growth as the US prepares to be EMV compliant by 2015.’’
