GoCardless has appointed Even Walser as Chief Revenue Officer, with overall responsibility for the company’s commercial sales.
He has more than 17 years’ experience of building and leading sales teams and has held leadership positions at Practice Fusion, Genius.com and Brand Watch. Most recently, he was Chief Revenue Officer at Decibel, where he successfully scaled and navigated the business through to a $40 million Series B funding round.
“The subscription economy is at a tipping point and the enormity of the $7 trillion recurring payments market made it clear to me that GoCardless presents a huge opportunity,” said Even. “Payments is an incredibly exciting space right now and I’m looking forward to leading the GoCardless team to even greater success.”
“Even will play a key role in accelerating adoption of GoCardless as a key payment method within mid-tier to enterprise organisations as companies seek to improve their payment operations and expand internationally. He brings a wealth of experience in implementing sales strategies to drive growth and revenue in the tech sector,” said Hiroki Takeuchi, CEO at GoCardless.
