iE, a provider of integrated e-business applications to the financial services industry, has made three senior appointments that further strengthen its hand in the rapidly growing card solutions sector.
Caroline Vander Galien joins the company as VP Sales and Marketing for the US operation, bringing 13 years’ experience in e-commerce and transaction processing – most recently at Cybercash Inc, where she was VP sales. She will be responsible for the continuing success of the iE NetFinance application suite and iE ScreenSurfer web-to-host gateway in the North American market.
Also new to the US operation is Michael Danziger, Product Director, who comes to iE with 15 years’ e-business and credit-card industry experience behind him. His role is to refine iE’s market strategy and product direction for iE NetFinance in the US. Before joining iE, Michael was Vice President of Strategic Alliances for Computer Associates International and prior to this was Vice President of Electronic Commerce for MasterCard International. Michael managed MasterCard’s Digital Certificate program and was a member of the MasterCard team which earned the 1999 ComputerWorld Smithsonian Award for their work in Global Secure Electronic Commerce. Michael was also Director of Business Development for the MasterCard Automated Point-of-Sale Program (MAPP).
In Europe, Helen Clulow has joined iE from NatWest where she gained several years’ experience of e-business and corporate and commercial banking, and rose to become head of product strategy and marketing for commercial cards. Helen joins iE as E-Business Manager for Europe with responsibility for refining product strategy for iE NetFinance in the European cards and banking services marketplaces. She joins iE’s E-Business Group headed by Jerry Mulle, who also joined iE last year from NatWest to lead this group of finance industry specialists responsible for identifying and defining the e-business solutions which iE takes to banks, insurers and investment fund organisations.
Roger Willcocks, chief executive, iE, said: “It is fast becoming a cliche to say that knowledge of the business is at least as important as expertise in the technology. With these latest appointments, iE now has tremendous depth of knowledge of the cards sector in the US and Europe to complement their market-leading and award-winning iE NetFinance e-business solution. I’m delighted to welcome Caroline, Michael and Helen to the team.”Details
