Paycepaid appoints experienced professional to head of sales
Debt collection firm Paycepaid has appointed David Howgate, a former executive at GoCardless, to fill its head of sales role and help the firm grow its partnerships in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
CEO and founder of Paycepaid Bill Mali said he is pleased the firm has been able to recruit someone with an extensive understanding of the industry.
“We are thrilled to welcome David to our team,” said Mr Mali.
“His deep industry knowledge and proven track record in sales leadership will be invaluable as we continue to grow and expand our presence in the region.”
The firm said Mr Howgate will be responsible for building Paycepaid’s go-to-market strategy with a key focus on partnerships.
It said he will be based in Melbourne and will build a team around him and develop it to full sales function so it can support the firm’s growth.
Mr Howgate said he is delighted by the opportunity to lead Paycepaid’s sales team going forward.
“I’m excited to join Paycepaid and help drive their expansion in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Mr Howgate.
“Paycepaid’s innovative technology and customer-centric approach to debt collection is exactly what businesses need in these challenging times.”
“I look forward to building strong partnerships and delivering real value to our customers.”
Mr Howgate assumes the role after an extensive career in the industry where he held positions at eWay, Global Payments Inc and SecurePay.
Along with the appointment of Mr Howgate, the firm also announced it has expanded its engineering team, with four hires based in India which will work on both the back-end and front-end of its platforms.
“This expansion is a critical step for us as we continue to enhance our technology platform and provide our customers with the best possible experience,” said Mr Mali.
“We are committed to delivering innovative and effective solutions to help businesses manage their end-to-end collections cycle, while providing their customers with simple payment options and reducing financial stress and anxiety.”
The firm’s growth comes after it announced in April it had acquired receivables firm Australian Debt Recoveries in a multi-million dollar deal to expand the firm’s capability.
