Wave Crest Holdings, a global e-payments company, has appointed Chris Mason as managing director of Europe.
In this newly created role, Mason will build upon the company’s already strong reputation and customer base in the European e-payments market. He will report to Gary Palmer, president of Wave Crest Holdings.
Prior to joining Wave Crest, Mason was managing director of AIBMS, a joint venture between First Data and Allied Irish Banks, for more than two years.
Before serving at AIBMS, Mason spent 13 years at Citigroup, most recently as global head of Worldlink Payment Services.
Prior to Worldink Payment Services, Mason was business head of Citi Commercial Cards EMEA for almost eight years, a business that he lead as a start-up and which became the leading corporate card provider for multi-national corporations in the region.
Palmer said Chris’ extensive experience in card issuing, card acquiring and cash management represents a rare and valuable combination in the payments industry, and is exactly what they need as they continue to transform how payments are made and received by consumers, corporations and governments.
