London – 9th May 2018 – APEXX, the first single marketplace for global payments, welcomes Sunilkumar Peenikal as CTO and James Jackson as Head of Implementation and Technical Pre-Sales to the company. APEXX’s platform has already introduced much needed transparency to the payments industry, fuelling market confidence. The new hires bring a wealth of experience and forward-thinking to APEXX that will drive continuous product development and innovative new features over the coming months.

Peenikal and Jackson join APEXX from senior positions within the financial industry. Most lately, Sunil was Director of Technology at Vocalink ( part of Mastercard group) after moving from Zapp where he was Director of Application Delivery. Prior to joining APEXX, Jackson held roles as Implementation Manager at Percolate and Worldpay.

Peter Keenan, CEO of APEXX said: “I am delighted to welcome both Sunil and James (JJ) to our growing team here at APEXX. They both bring enormous experience and knowledge to our London tech team and will be invaluable in continuing to develop our product and keep APEXX at the forefront of payments innovation.”

Sunil comments: “I am enormously excited to be joining the team at APEXX. They have an extremely exciting product proposition and I am really looking forward to taking the tech to the next level. We have already begun work on new projects which will be launching before the end of the year.”

APEXX’s platform already saves merchants upwards of 15% on the cost of processing credit or debit card payments and alternative payments. For many merchants, this equates to millions of pounds. Since launching the platform in 2017, APEXX has attracted an impressive and ever-growing group of partners and clients including Bank Brokers, Alipay, Charles Tyrwhitt, iZettle, Paysafe, Visa, Mastercard, Processing.com and Cardstream.

With a newly strengthened senior team, recognition in the last Payments Awards as Most Disruptive Payments Technology and a programme of continuous product innovation confirmed, the coming year is full of promise for APEXX.
