Onbe, the preferred payments partner for the world’s leading brands, today announced that industry executive George Eliopoulos, has been appointed as Chief Revenue Officer (CRO), alongside a new member of the Board of Directors, Kevin Schultz. Eliopoulos and Schultz’s appointments come on the heels of Onbe’s recent brand launch announcement —following the merger of two leading fintechs, daVinci Payments and North Lane Technologies.
In addition to Eliopoulos, Onbe has formed an executive team hailing from the world’s top fintech, finance and payments leaders including Visa, PayPal, Citi, JPMorgan Chase and more, led by interim CEO and Onbe Chairman Juli Spottiswood. Onbe has cultivated a world-class team from a combination of Onbe’s rich fintech heritage, as well as the best talent the market has to offer.
Eliopoulos, a 20-year industry veteran, previously led a number of PayPal’s North American enterprise sales divisions and, prior to that, formed JPMorgan Chase’s Midwest sales arm of a new commercial lending division. He has played vital roles in creating client organizations that resulted in dramatic revenue growth. He has extensive experience driving company momentum and profit in the technology, payments, finance and banking sectors.
“I am thrilled to be joining Onbe, alongside an exceptional team—with whom I look forward to growing Onbe’s market position, fueled by new innovations and expansive client relationships,” said George Eliopoulos, Onbe CRO. “The company’s mission to create engaging payment experiences for leading brands globally is something I’ve dedicated my career to, and I’m excited to start this new chapter of my journey as Onbe embarks upon its own new beginning.”
Schultz brings more than 30 years of experience in payments, having most recently served as EVP and Group President of Digital Banking and EVP and President of International at Fiserv. Prior to Fiserv, Schultz held leadership roles at First Data, Global Payments and Visa. Schultz joins the Board as an Independent Director, alongside Chairman Juli Spottiswood and Onbe investors from Centerbridge Partners, L.P., Bain Capital Ventures and Silversmith Capital Partners.
“Having been in the payments industry for three decades, I can say firsthand that it’s rare to see a true innovator, like Onbe,” said Schultz. “I’m excited to bring my experience to a company I believe is paving the way for the future of fintech.”
“George and Kevin bring invaluable experience to our already highly-respected team of accomplished payments experts,” said Juli Spottiswood, chairman and interim CEO. “These appointments will further Onbe’s mission to innovate and co-create engaging experiences that deliver value beyond currency, and we have no doubt that George and Kevin will play a pivotal role in Onbe’s evolution as we continue our rapid growth throughout 2021 and beyond.”
