Chairman of the Board re-elected

Claude Brun has been re-elected as Chairman of the nexo Board of Directors for a further two-year period, having led the organization for the last two years.

“It is a great privilege to continue serving as nexo’s Chairman of the Board. In recent years, nexo standards has reached a real cornerstone of maturity, and the election of such an international, diverse and prominent Board is a testament to that,” comments Claude Brun. “Championing true cross-industry, global representation is central to our success. Our membership reached 86 this year, and it is thanks to the growth and engagement of our members that nexo standards is now a stable, recognized and established industry force.”

This year also saw the election of Jacques Soussana as General Secretary for a three-year term.

“Today, our protocols are being reviewed and implemented by merchants, processors, PSPs and banks, with the support of schemes across Europe, Canada, America, Asia and Africa. But we won’t stop here,” comments Jacques Soussana. “All industry players have a voice and opportunity to play their part in the development of our standards and the direction of our organization. Looking forward, it’s this collaboration that will ensure we continue to best serve the needs of each stakeholder and realize a truly open, borderless and interoperable payment acceptance ecosystem.”

 

*The nexo Board of Directors is comprised of a representative from each sector category (Acceptor, Card Scheme, Processor, Payment Service Provider (PSP) and Vendors), with a maximum of five seats available per category.
