Contis are delighted to announce the appointment of Andy Patton as our new Group Chief Commercial Officer.

Patton will focus his 25 years of leadership experience across financial services, fintech and global consumer brands to identify and drive value for our partners. Based out of Contis’ London office, Andy will be responsible for building partnerships with existing customers and delivering business from new partners.

Prior to Contis, Andy held several senior management positions across financial services, including Vice President of Business Development at American Express, Vice President / Senior Business Leader at Mastercard, as well as driving fintech opportunities for banking and other financial partners for a leading start-up accelerator based in Zurich.

This comes shortly after Contis was featured in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100 for 2018, in September, and in the same week, announced the acquisition of Paze Finance Limited. In that one week Contis obtained a UK consumer credit licence, grew its technology service offering and was featured in the Sunday Times Tech Track 100: the showcase of Britain’s private technology, media and telecoms companies with the fastest-growing sales. For Contis, it was validation of their rapid growth and continued success in their tenth year.

CEO Flavia Alzetta stated: “Andy brings very senior, global experience to complement the deep technical expertise Contis delivers to the alternative banking and payments market. This appointment will enable us to continue our rapid growth and transform the way the fintech space operates – helping our customers get better value financial services and life outcomes.”

Patton added: “Enabled by Contis’ award-winning payments and banking platform and additional products, I will be helping grow opportunities for our partners and clients – ensuring that the global alternative banking and finance ecosystem benefits from the fastest, most complete platform, in the form of our Canvas platform – as well as Contis’ other leading banking and payments solutions.”
