This is a tremendous opportunity not only to work with a dynamic company at a key moment in its history, but to help support the enormous rise in entrepreneurial-based businesses both in the United States and around the world.

Payscout has announced the appointment of Dan Gardner as Chief Financial Officer. Gardner graduated from London Business School with an MBA, and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce from Concordia University in Montreal. He is a licensed CPA and previously held a FINRA Series 27 license as a registered financial and operations principal. Gardner brings a wealth of global financial expertise to his new position and prior to his appointment at Payscout, Dan spent the last 5 years as CFO of TRANSFAST, driving it into a leading cross-border payments and solutions provider that operates a best-in-class network across over 120 countries. Earlier in his career, he also served in a series of increasingly responsible financial management positions at international firms such as Global Capacity and D.B. Zwirn.

As Payscout’s Chief Financial Officer, Gardner will be responsible for the financial reporting/operations, risk management and treasury/liquidity management of one of the most rapidly growing firms in its sector. Payscout, a global payment processing provider covering six continents, was recognized as one of America’s fastest-growing private companies in 2014, when it ranked #2,416 on Inc. Magazine’s 500/5000 list. Payscout was also recognized by Inc. in 2015, when its ranking in the list jumped to #434. Within the financial services industry, Payscout was ranked #140 in 2014 and #24 in 2015. This expansion pattern continues as Payscout prepares to expand all of its U.S. branch locations, including its Los Angeles headquarters. Payscout also recently announced the completion of infrastructural and regulatory preparations for the full-scale operation of Payscout Brazil, headquartered in São Paulo.

“As Chief Financial Officer, Dan will be a key player in developing Payscout’s financial and operational strategy, as well as ensuring that we have the necessary internal control systems and metrics to support that strategy as we continue to grow. I have had the pleasure of knowing Dan for almost a decade, and I know that in addition to his formidable experience and skills on the financial side, he brings a great sense of integrity, innovation, and energy to the workplace. He will be an excellent fit in the Payscout culture,” said Payscout President Manpreet Singh.

“This is a tremendous opportunity not only to work with a dynamic company at a key moment in its history, but to help support the enormous rise in entrepreneurial-based businesses both in the United States and around the world. I’m excited to help drive Payscout forward as it helps its domestic and international partners expand and take advantage of emerging cross-border opportunities,” said Gardner.

Entrepreneurialism, which is particularly strong among the millennial generation, is not only increasing economic growth by linking businesses together in new ways, it is changing the global landscape. This, in turn, has created a strong demand for fraud management and CNP (card-not-present) transactions.

Global entrepreneurialism is at the core of Payscout’s mission and focus on providing enterprise-level corporations and small-to-medium-sized businesses with scalable payment technologies that support a full range of commerce needs. Payscout’s “Go Global Now” platform provides these customers with a unique turnkey approach to quickly establishing an operation in over 100 countries.

Payscout CEO Cleveland Brown indicates the company’s people are the key to making these ambitions a reality. “Payscout’s well-defined mission has attracted a diverse team of A-list talent devoted to cultural empathy and customer empowerment,” said Brown. “The team, which now includes CFO Dan Gardner, is committed to the collaborative vision of becoming the thought leading and fastest growing payment processing provider in the world.”
