A cross-border payment specialist and one of Europe’s fastest-growing FinTech companies, has appointed Dr Götz Möller as the company’s new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) for Acquisitions.

Möller will be responsible for PPRO’s Legal & Compliance, Finance, Controlling, Tax, Business Intelligence, Treasury and Corporate Administration departments.

His duties will also include driving the company’s international expansion strategy through both organic and inorganic growth, as well as internal process optimisation and regulatory compliance.

“PPRO is, of course, familiar to me as a long-established player in the payment industry. I am delighted to become part of this innovative company and to play a part in driving PPRO’s ambitious future growth,” said Möller.

Möller joins PPRO from BS PAYONE, where he served as CFO and was substantially involved in the successful conclusion of the Joint Venture between BS PAYONE and Ingenico.

Prior to this, he spent 11 years as CFO of Equens (now equensWorldline) and its predecessor, where his responsibilities included overseeing the areas of Finance & Controlling, HR, Risk Management and Legal.

Möller is experienced in working directly with payment regulators and has played a key role in many mergers, acquisitions and divestments worldwide.

“We are delighted to have Götz Möller on board and we are confident that he will add tremendous value to PPRO,” said PPRO CEO Simon Black.

“He has many years’ expertise in the payment industry and his experience will enable him to contribute significantly to PPRO’s further development.”
