Jeffrey Weikert will join online and mobile payment solutions provider Payveris as president, focusing on the company’s growth objectives.
Weikert will report to Payveris’ Board of Directors and will be responsible for all aspects of Payveris’ growing digital payment enterprise, growth objectives and strategic direction. He will also focus on Payveris’ customer facing side of the business – sales, client development and marketing as the company moves into its next phase of growth.
Payveris Founder Fran Duggan will be taking on the newly created role of Chief Operating Officer and will be responsible for overseeing Payveris’ product vision and development, operations and client services teams. Adding Weikert to the team will allow Duggan to concentrate his efforts on continuous innovation, product enhancement and exceeding customer expectations, the company says.
“As Payveris continues to gain momentum and serve the changing payment needs of the industry, we continue to structure our organization and to strategically manage our growth,” said Duggan. “With this in mind, Jeff’s extensive experience and reputation in the industry will be a tremendous asset to our company and strengthen an already strong team,”
Weikert joins Payveris from Deluxe Corporation where he served as Vice President. He also spent time at CheckFree (now part of Fiserv) during the mainstream adoption of electronic billing and payments by consumers.
Weikert has spent 30 years in the financial services and technology industry in a variety of senior and executive roles at notable firms such as Deloitte & Touche, Bank of America, SunTrust, CheckFree and RewardsNOW as well as innovative payment start-up, Verient.
This addition complements Payveris’ decision earlier this year to bring in payments veteran Marcell King to head up its merchant solutions offering. The company added a digital commerce solution to connect financial institutions, consumers and merchants within the digital payments process.
