AstroPay names Fayyaz Ansari CFO

By Gambling Insider

AstroPay has found a new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) in the form of Fayyaz Ansari.

The company’s latest appointee is a veteran of the financial world, having worked for more than two decades in the sector.

Prior to joining AstroPay, Ansari worked for Skrill, Neteller and Income Access, but the finance veteran’s experience extends beyond the payments industry.

He began his career as an auditor, ultimately serving as Audit Executive at PricewaterhouseCoopers from 2004 until he moved to Skrill in 2008.

“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to join AstroPay as the next step in my career,” commented Ansari.

“I am excited about working with a team that is passionate about the business, has a clear strategy and always puts customers’ needs first.

“With its commitment to global expansion, a strong business model, a focus on diversity and proud history, AstroPay is well positioned for extraordinary growth and impact.”

Ansari’s experience includes “controllership, treasury, financial planning and analysis, tax restructuring, corporate finance, performance management, M&A and strategic planning,” said AstroPay.

These skills will likely prove useful in his new role, where he will be responsible for overseeing all aspects of AstroPay’s global financial management and activities.

Mikael Lijtenstein, AstroPay CEO, added: “I am delighted to welcome Fayyaz to AstroPay where he will undoubtedly make an immediate impact as we aim to become the world’s leading payments platform.

“His wealth of experience will be essential in implementing our strategic plans to accelerate growth and position AstroPay for the future.”
