Product Specialist (Acquiring Products)
I’ve joined equensWorldline in the beginning of 2018 as a product specialist in Acquiring Product Management. My journey in payment industry started already 13 years ago in Luottokunta in Finland (later on Nets). After moving to the Netherlands and having a short detour to an eCommerce PSP company, I came back to my roots on cards processing at equensWorldline. My current focus areas are acquiring back office processing and dispute management.
What inspires you in the payment industry?
The speed of new fintechs coming up and disrupting the market makes the payment industry even more inspiring and interesting. Focus on overall user/shopping experience and fading the payment part is also very interesting change.
What recent event / innovation inspired or frightened you?
I’m very inspired on the possibilities cloud technology could offer for payments industry without losing the security aspects and oligations.
What are the payment features that you use yourself on a day to day basis (for example, contactless, Apple Pay, p2p transfers etc)?
After moving to the Netherlands I’ve become a fan of contactless and now also only with my mobile phone where the bank app olds my debit card details. In eCommerce I still tend to use cards or iDeal depending on where the Merchant is located.
