Skrill and Neteller, the two payment services products from Paysafe, have got a new CEO. Skrill is becoming increasingly popular amongst crypto traders. Chirag Patel, their newly appointed CEO plans to expand crypto services.
Skrill already provides users with a dedicated crypto trading feature. Anyone can transfer and purchase crypto using their app. Most importantly, the Skrill App is the easiest way to purchase crypto from fiat in many countries. It also provides support in some countries where the regulations are not very crypto-friendly.
Paysafe’s new CEO Chirag Patel has said that he is “really looking forward to joining the Paysafe team next month and to be given the opportunity to lead its exciting Digital Wallets business. I believe there is enormous potential to extend the offering to more and more customers given Skrill and Neteller’s worldwide presence, combined with Paysafe’s great technology and talented team.”
Chirag has an extensive track record of working with top companies. Prior to joining Paysafe, he was working with Amazon and Santander Bank as their payments officer.
The former payments officer for Amazon and Santander Bank will be charged with overseeing the commercial growth strategy and operations of Paysafe’s digital wallets of Skrill and Neteller.
It has only been two weeks that Patel has joined Skrill and Neteller. Commenting on his appointment, Philip McHugh, Paysafe’s CEO, added: “Chirag has an awesome track record as a high-performing payments’ executive and has successfully launched and grown multiple consumer-facing and B2B payments products and services around the world. I’m thrilled to have someone of his calibre and energy level to take our Digital Wallets business to the next level of growth.
“I’d like to add my sincere thanks to Lorenzo for the immense passion and drive he has shown over the past 15 years as he launched our digital wallet solutions around the world. We now offer two of the most popular and sophisticated digital wallet brands on the planet and have strong foundations to continue building on as we grow the business.”
Skrill makes it very easy for all crypto investors to buy and transfer cryptocurrencies. Moreover, in many jurisdictions, it is the only way to purchase crypto from fiat currency.
