Xace announces the appointment of Annie Osborne as CCO

Xace, the fast-growing account and payment provider has added industry expertise to its senior team with the appointment of Annie Osborne as Chief Commercial Officer, further strengthening its position as a specialist gaming payment account provider.

As Chief Commercial Officer, Osbourne will be responsible for shaping & executing Xace’s Commercial Sales & Marketing strategies, including Product Development and Customer Experience.

It comes as Xace has expanded rapidly since launching under a year ago, gaining a strong client-base among gaming companies that struggle to acquire traditional high-street bank accounts. The firm already counts some of gaming’s most well-known and respected businesses as customers.

Xace currently provides EUR and GBP business and personal accounts, each with virtual debit cards, throughout Europe. The company has ambitious plans to further expand throughout Europe this year, with Osborne playing a key role in driving growth.

David Hodkinson, Xace CEO, said: “I am delighted to welcome Annie to the team and for Xace to leverage her tremendous knowledge and experience not only of international payments but also of the global gambling industry as we continue to expand rapidly.

“Xace provides a quality solution to a common problem that gaming companies across Europe encounter and this has seen us ride an incredible wave of growth in our first year. We now want to build on that and with Annie on board as CCO it will undoubtedly be another successful year for Xace.”

Osborne added: “I’m delighted and immensely proud to be joining Xace at this stage of its growth.  It is an incredibly exciting opportunity and I am looking forward to playing a part in its continued success as the business expands its reach across Europe over the coming months.

“Its product offering, especially to gaming businesses, has led Xace to become the account and payment provider of choice for a number of companies both in and out of the sector. Now is the time to rapidly scale up and I look forward to playing my part in continuing the impressive journey.”
