Australian global payments provider Verrency announced on Tuesday is continuing to grow its global footprint, appointing Aaron Oliver as Commercial Director for Asia and the Middle East, based in Singapore. Founded in 2016, Verrency states its payments API platform has been designed to enable financial institutions to innovate more efficiently and effectively through a single connect.
