fastacash — a technology enabler of payments and value transfer through social media and messaging applications — has hired Jorgen Nordin as its Chief Innovation Officer.
Nordin will leverage his thirty years' of the technology experience to lead fastacash's innovation agenda, particularly as the company looks to expand its product offerings as well as its market presence across Asia, Australia, Europe, the Middle East, and North America. He will ensure the company continues to build consumer-focused social payments solutions that are seamless and driven by the end-consumer's experiences.
"In the last four years, the concept behind fastacash has moved away from being simply an idea to becoming a global innovator in the lucrative social payments space. Large multinationals, including banks with hundreds of millions of consumers, are looking to fastacash to connect and engage with their consumers through our innovative technology solutions. Appointing a Chief Innovation Officer with the energy, vision and background as rich as Jorgen's, positions us very well to redefine the way people transact over social networks," said Vince Tallent, Chairman and CEO of fastacash.
Prior to joining fastacash, Jorgen was the Head of International Product Management at US-based wearables company Jawbone. He has extensive experience in technology companies including Ericsson, Omnisky Corp, Tactel AB, Mobile 365, End2End A/S, and AliphCom across roles in Marketing, Product Management, Business Development and Sales.
