Paytech company Abrantix has appointed former chief market officer of French payments giant Worldline, Roger Niederer (LinkedIn), as its new CEO. According to a statement, Niederer brings global expertise in fintech and merchant services, M&A and internationalization experience, and a worldwide network. He replaces founder Daniel Eckstein, who will remain with the company.
As a chief visionary officer, the previous Abrantix CEO and founder Daniel Eckstein plan to drive payment innovation in the future. In addition, as Chairman of the Board of Directors, he is responsible for the medium and long-term strategy together with the Executive Board. Last year, the executive board was expanded to seven members.
Abrantix says it is well positioned for its next expansion steps. While the Zurich-based Playtech company still employed 35 employees in 2019, the company currently has 100 employees. More than 140 robots and card multiplexers are in daily use on all continents.
