Earthport, the leading payment network for cross-border transactions, is pleased to announce that Michael R. Steinharter has joined Earthport in the new position of Chief Commercial Officer, effective immediately. In addition, Sajeev Viswanathan has decided to step down from the board as an Executive Director and will pass on his management responsibilities to Mike Steinharter.  

Mike brings a great range of experience to Earthport, building, managing and growing successful sales organisations at some of the largest and most respected technology service companies. Among his many roles, Mike spent over 20 years selling to the financial services sector at IBM with significant management responsibility in New York, London, and Sydney. Mike has also served as president of Reuters America and built a significant financial services practice at Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC).  

Sajeev Viswanathan decided to step down from the board as an Executive Director and will pass on his management responsibilities to Mike Steinharter.  Sajeev has been instrumental in establishing our presence across the various regions in the emerging markets. As announced this morning, Earthport has received the Reserve Bank of India’s approval to provide cross border payment solutions to banks in India. It is a potentially significant opportunity for Earthport and we are pleased that Sajeev has agreed to stay on with Earthport to help us launch and build on our presence in India for the next several months.

We thank Sajeev for his significant contribution to Earthport and wish him the best in his future endeavours. We welcome Mike at an important point in Earthport’s growth.
