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.

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.”
