DNA Payments Group, an independent, vertically-integrated omnichannel payments platform operating in the United Kingdom and the EU, is pleased to confirm the appointments of Lloyd Hutchinson as the Group’s Chief Commercial Officer and Andras Mecser as Chief Financial Officer.
A graduate of the University of York, Lloyd has occupied key senior commercial leadership roles at Ebury and Airwallex, as UK and IRE MD and laterally as Head of EMEA.
With an established track record of building and scaling Fintech companies, Lloyd’s appointment should help with supporting the firm’s strategic goal of attaining organic and structural growth.
Lloyd Hutchinson remarked:
“I am delighted to be joining DNA at such an exciting time. As an integrated omnichannel payment provider, we enable our partners and merchants alike to grow and optimise their revenue base seamlessly against the backdrop of an ever-changing marketplace. As we tackle legacy incumbent players, we’re establishing ourselves as a dominant force in the UK. Looking ahead, I will support the company’s strategic growth programme, which focuses on expansion through strategic acquisition, moving into new geographical areas and driving our organic engines.”
Andras has reportedly joined DNA Payments Group with over 17 years of industry experience in the financial services sector. He will be tasked with supporting the Group’s overall growth strategy, value creation, transformation, finance, and operational excellence, based at the firm’s London office.
Andras has notably earned an MBA from London Business School and an MA from the Corvinus University of Budapest. He joins the DNA Payments Group from Zepz (previously WorldRemit).
At Zepz, he had been working as Group CFO overseeing finance, treasury, legal and compliance, and serving on the UK board. Before Zepz, he was serving as the CFO at Ebury, working across several different functions, and he worked at McKinsey for several years.
Andras Mecser added:
“The Group is at an inflection point of growth. I’m looking forward to proactively helping drive the strategy and pragmatic execution as we progress and expand, as part of a team that has made huge progress in building an integrated, omnichannel solution.”
