“With the best customer references in the industry such as PayPal, Green Dot, Varo and Commerce Bank amongst others, and having invested significantly over the past 10 years in making our products fully compliant with U.S. regulations, we are now in a position to accelerate our sales efforts and growth and keep growing our North America business ahead of our global growth. Roman is the ideal executive to achieve this. Going forward, we expect it to be 40-45% of our business by 2025, which means that it will grow twice as fast as the overall company.”
