The crucial hire follows a substantial Series C investment and bolsters international expansion strategies.

FREMONT, CA: “What excited me about joining ConnexPay was the opportunity to support an already well-honed and hungry team of professionals that share a unified focus on changing the way payments are made in the verticals we participate in. I have long admired from afar the growth and trajectory of the company. ConnexPay has the most unique platform in the industry, and it is already being utilized in several very large market segments,” says Blair Jeffery, COO at ConnexPay. ConnexPay, the first and only payments technology business to integrate payments acceptance and issuance under a single platform, has appointed Blair Jeffery as Chief Operating Officer (COO).

Jeffery brings with him more than 20 years of expertise in the payments business, having previously served as CEO at Vertical, Executive in Residence at LLR Equity Partners, and Chief Operating Officer of Noventis from 2010 until its sale by WEX. During his tenure, he oversaw over 5,000 bank partnerships and 250,000 suppliers. Jeffery has previously had top operations and business development positions in the payments and fintech industries for other firms.

Jeffery will supervise ConnexPay's key strategic and operational teams, including Product Strategy, Marketing, Project Management, Implementations, and Customer Success, in his capacity as chief operating officer. His ambition for the position is to construct a world-class operational function that is highly customer-centric, inventive, secure, and responsive. This contributes to the company's already robust and lively culture. Jeffery's ultimate responsibility is to increase shareholder value.

"I'm committed to getting in front of growth challenges before they become impediments to revenue and retention. As a team we have set our sights on building an industry-leading, world-class operational function, and now my job is to execute on that strategic journey," adds Jeffery.

“I’m excited to welcome Blair Jeffery to the ConnexPay team. His many years of payments industry experience, both acquiring and issuing, brings tremendous value to our organization, especially at this stage of our growth,” says Bob Kaufman, Founder and CEO at ConnexPay. “This appointment welcomes in a new era of international growth for ConnexPay, as Blair will be instrumental in aligning our core strategic and operational functions as we continue to transform lives by simply connecting payments for our customers.”
