Global Risk Technologies announces new Head of Merchant and ISO Sales in Europe
Global Risk Technologies – specialists in Chargeback Compliance™ and loss prevention, and parent company of Chargebacks911 (the Americas) and Chargeback Tech – announced the appointment of a new Head of Merchant and ISO Sales in Europe, Steve Warner.
Mr Warner joins Global Risk Technologies at an exciting time for the European branch of the international company as it introduces the Head of Merchant & ISO Sales role in the UK to emulate the successful approach developed in the US over the past three years. Recent industry analysis from LexisNexis revealed a staggering 94 percent increase in fraud losses for merchants since 2014 and as EMV protection turns more fraudsters online, the need for effective risk mitigation and fraud prevention has never been greater.
“We are delighted to welcome Steve to Global Risk Technologies,” said Gary Cardone, CEO of Global Risk Technologies.
“His considerable experience of senior-level business management roles, together with his impressive business acumen, means that Steve brings great value to our business development team as we develop merchant relationships across the region.”
Steve Warner commented:
“I am extremely excited to be joining Global Risk Technologies (GRT) in a role that focuses on the needs of Card Not Present (CNP) merchants across Europe and which utilises and builds upon the technology and consultative approach that has already been so successful in the US. The continued growth of CNP sales creates new challenges for merchants, and, in particular chargebacks and loss prevention are increasingly prevalent in the mind of merchants looking to tackle these risks.”
“Global Risk Technologies has a comprehensive product offering to assist merchants in devising processes that will help to reduce chargeback rates and, in turn, dramatically improve business revenues as a result.” adds Gary Cardone.
“Steve will work with our customers to ensure that the most appropriate products are selected for their respective businesses.”
Previously, Mr Warner held senior level business management roles including SVP Sales EMEA at PAY ON AG, VP & General Manager at CardNet Merchant Services, First Data and Head of European Corporate Sales & Relationship Management, Retailer Solutions for The Royal Bank of Scotland Group.
