The crypto executive is charged with further expanding the company’s group-wide crypto offering to “meet the growing needs of its merchant and consumer customers around the world,” a statement from Paysafe read.

Starting immediately in the newly-created role, he is the latest senior hire to the leadership team of Chirag Patel, CEO of Paysafe’s Digital Wallets division.

“Without doubt, the crypto market is continuing to expand rapidly and represents an important growth opportunity for Paysafe as one of the most reputable, specialised payments players in this space,” said Patel.

“Against this exciting market context, the timing of Elbruz’ appointment is perfect as more and more of our merchant and consumer customers lean on us to further ramp up our crypto payments offering.

“Elbruz’ deep knowledge and experience of all things crypto, together with his impressive network of industry contacts, adds real strength to our existing crypto team and will enable us to continue winning in this space.”

Yilmaz joins the group from Bitpanda, a Vienna-based cryptocurrency and digital asset investment platform. There, he served as Managing Director, MENA and Turkey with responsibility for leading the group’s strategy and operations in the region.

Yilmaz commented: “Crypto is an exciting opportunity for Paysafe whose core strengths around regulatory compliance, digital wallet infrastructure and multiple payment technologies set it up well to meet the evolving needs of its customers globally. 

“I am thrilled to be joining such a talented team and playing my part in accelerating this growth.”
