LevelUp releases app redesign and hires new execs

Transaction volume doubling every six weeks

LevelUp, the app that lets you pay by phone, has announced the redesign of its mobile app and a series of new exec hires at parent company SCVNGR. The updated app (available for iOS and coming to Android soon) now enables users to search for merchants by category, view their transaction history and a local map listing the places they’ve visited before.

The new execs include Harold Prokop, former SVP of engineering at Akamai Technologies, who is joining as CTO, and Mark Amabile, former global CFO at Omnicom Media Group, who is joining as CFO. Prokop will be responsible for scaling the LevelUp’s payment architecture and expanding the engineering team whilst Amabile will be focusing on the company’s financial operations as, according to SCVNGR, the company’s transaction volume doubles approximately every six weeks.

Our plan is to grow LevelUp into the largest mobile payment network in the country, and we’re building an insanely talented exec team to achieve that goal…fast,” said SCVNGR Chief Ninja Seth Priebatsch.
