CreditCall expands its US team with the appointment of Richard Roscher as EMV Business Development Director, effective from June 2013.
With his extensive industry knowledge and proven track record in establishing solid relationships with global channel partners and customers, he will spearhead CreditCall’s initiatives to support EMV migration in the US.
“With liability shifts and mandates looming, I feel CreditCall is in a unique position because of its 10+ years history in the EMV space and existing track record as a PSP gateway in the US. I am confident we can provide the expertise to be able to help processors, VAR’s and POS companies migrate over to support EMV as well as NFC in the expert fashion CreditCall is known for throughout the world” says Richard.
CreditCall CEO Peter Turner added ‘‘Richard has a great track record of working very successfully with major institutions in the US. As CreditCall continues to expand in the US, Richard’s skill and market knowledge will be pivotal in allowing us to accelerate our growth especially as the US prepares to be EMV compliant by 2015.’’
