In a move expected to significantly enhance MYPINPAD’s global profile, Colin Greene has been appointed as the company’s new chief executive officer (CEO).

Greene has over 30 years experience in executive leadership roles at a number of technology giants such as NCR, Intel and Dell, whilst also working for the past 13 years at Apple where he most recently led the US channel retail business as a senior executive.

Greene commented: “I’m truly honoured to have been appointed Licentia Group and MYPINPAD CEO. My career so far has been dominated by a passion for technology and the positive impact of smart devices on people’s everyday lives. We now have the opportunity to take that customer experience to the next level with MYPINPAD, and to transform the global face-to-face payments ecosystem. 

“The MYPINPAD team possesses unequalled innovation and payments technology expertise to deliver on that promise. I cannot wait to get started.” 

The former Apple senior executive will be trusted to enhance MYPINPAD’s,
a Licentia Group company, vision as the company attempts to expand and enhance its systems to the global markets.

MYPINPAD, specialises in software-based PIN entry on smartphones and tablets, and contactless payments on Android platforms. MYPINPAD’s technology will see point-of-sale terminals and PIN entry mPOS devices replaced by iOS and Android smartphones and tablets running secure payment software. 

This technology is expected to dramatically reduce cost and complexity throughout the face-to-face payment value-chain, while enabling customers to leverage the data-rich environment of connected smart devices.

Phil King, MYPINPAD’s chairman, concluded: “Colin’s appointment is a pivotal moment for the Licentia Group and MYPINPAD. His experience is perfectly aligned with our ambitions. I can think of no better person to head up our rapidly expanding business. 

“Together we will build on our position as the global leader in this extremely specialised area, mass-deploy our technology, transform everyday phones and tablets into secure payment terminals and change payments acceptance forever.”
