This follows the appointment of Ya Wen as the new VP of Enterprise for the Americas, recently. The company has been getting some senior hands-on board as the company looks to expand globally and focuses on the Enterprise business which has some of the biggest companies onboard the platform and this business is likely to be challenged by new entrants into the payments industry in the coming months.

Robert Clarkson had previously served as the Chief Commercial Officer at NortonLifeLock where he not only took care of General Revenue but was also responsible for customer acquisition and strategic partnerships as well.

“Robert is an expert business executive with more than 20 years of experience leading global revenue and account management teams at leading fintech and payment companies, like PayPal and American Express. He will be responsible for leading the global go-to-market team, driving the overall business, and more deeply penetrating our target markets. I’m excited to add Robert to the leadership team as we execute on our growth strategy and pursue our mission, to democratize access to financial services and drive growth for digital businesses of all sizes from around the world,” said Scott Galit, Chief Executive Officer of Payoneer.

At Paypal, where he had worked before joining NortonLifeLock, Clarkson was the Head of Global Partnerships and business development where he was involved in working with some of the largest merchants and firms onboard the Paypal platform. Before joining Paypal, he had worked with American Express as Vice President.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Payoneer as it enters a new period of expansion and growth. The company is addressing an exciting, evolving, and massive market. I look forward to working with Scott and the rest of the team to help strengthen Payoneer, and make the right investments so we can exceed our long-term goals and help customers all over the world succeed and grow in the global digital economy,” noted Robert.

Payoneer has been in a strong growth phase as the demand for cross-border payments has been increasing over the last couple of years. With the advent of digital payments, the company also needs to upgrade its services to keep pace. The company had recently gone public through the SPAC route.
