Global Payments Veteran Tapped to Drive PayAnywhere Product Leadership

Even though the new year is only six weeks old, MMW has already observed a consistent and steady shifting of top industry talents toward the thriving arena of mobile payments.

What’s particularly notable about the trend is the number of high-profile leaders flocking to mobile point of sale payments solutions.

Just last week, Robert Seward – a longtime veteran of the global payments industry – joined North American Bancard to help drive PayAnywhere product leadership.

Despite an increasingly competitive landscape for similar products and solutions, PayAnywhere has secured a strong footing in the payment industry with what it calls the only professional grade, mobile point of sale solution suited for any size business or contractor.

Just this past November, the company’s national retail channel rollout began as PayAnywhere readers arrived at Walmart, Sam’s Club, The Home Depot, OfficeMax, Hastings, and Pep Boys, along with regional retailers like Meijer’s and Fred Meyer.

“With more than twenty years in the global payments industry and specific experience working directly with merchant retailers, the addition of Rob to the leadership team is a huge win for the company,” said Marc Gardner, president and CEO of North American Bancard and PayAnywhere. “As we evolve the PayAnywhere solution to meet the POS needs of modern merchants, Rob’s fresh perspective and track record for successful growth and innovation will keep our product and service offering at the front of the pack. Expect big things from PayAnywhere with Rob driving our product innovation.”
