Former Visa prepaid executive Scott Salmon was recently named by payment processing provider i2c as the general manager of international growth at the company, where he will be responsible for developing and expanding i2c’s presence.
i2c—headquartered in Silicon Valley—supports prepaid, debit and credit card transactions made physically or virtually on its cloud-based platform.
“i2c is redefining what’s possible in prepaid, debit, credit and emerging commerce programs,” Salmon said. “The opportunities that i2c’s processing technology creates for [Asia Pacific, Central Europe, Middle East and Africa] markets is tremendous, and I am very excited to work with the i2c team to help clients in these regions capitalize on them.”
Salmon joins the company from Visa, where he has served as the head of prepaid products for Asia Pacific, Central Europe, the Middle East and Africa for the past five years. Before joining Visa, Salmon served in a variety of roles in consulting and product management in retail banking.
“Scott’s industry knowledge and extensive international experience will be an asset as we continue to grow our business across the globe,” i2c CEO Amir Wain said. “The perspective Scott and his team will bring from being on the ground in the region will benefit the entire i2c organization – from Engineering to Sales to Client Services.”
Salmon will present on profitability in the prepaid industry at the Cards & Payments Middle East conference in Dubai next week. He will also attend the PayExpo in London in June.
