Australian online payment technology vendor GPayments has appointed a new CEO from the ranks of financial consultancy group KPMG, taking the reigns from founder Bahram Boutorabi.
After two decades on the move Shipley believes GPayments has the potential to keep him in the one place. In fact his faith in the company is such that he has taken a substantial pay cut in order to take up the new position.
"GPayments' strength lies in its broad spread of products. While I can see strong competitors in every niche, we offer payment gateway services that fully integrate to offer e-commerce solutions," he said.
While GPayment has gained from a strong Iranian based technical development team, Shipley believes that the company will benefit from a more proactive sales and marketing approach, and investor lead growth.
"The development infrastructure and vision is already there," Shipley told ARN. "At this stage the company lacks the infrastructure to support extensive international rollouts, however it has the potential to expand significantly over the next few years."
