Cross-border payment specialists, PPRO, has announced, Robert Schwegler as the new Chief Technology Officer (CTO), as of 1st May, to further strengthen the PPRO Management Team. Robert takes over from Andrew Weir, who has served as interim CTO since 1st September 2018, and will focus on all aspects of the company’s technical development. His aim will be to drive the transformation of the company’s structures, software and processes from the European to the global level.

 Schwegler has many years of experience with diverse high-volume e-commerce systems across gaming/gambling, retail, telecommunications and travel. Prior to joining PPRO, he worked for Tipico, Zalando, bwin and Amadeus. Schwegler also served as chief architect at Deutsche Telekom, where he was responsible for product development and platforms, including the company’s payment products and the creation of a cloud infrastructure for telephony applications and IPTV.

“I am greatly looking forward to my new challenge at PPRO and working alongside my new team to support and drive expansion efforts through suitable technology transformations and working practices. Our use of Kubernetes as a cloud runtime platform provides PPRO’s software developers with a stimulating work environment,” Schwegler explains. “The payments industry is an exciting growth market, and PPRO has carved out an extremely promising position, with plans to expand beyond the horizons of the European market.”

 “It's fantastic to have Robert join our team. His leadership and experience will be instrumental to scaling our company as we build local payments services worldwide to support our customers growth,” explains PPRO CEO Simon Black. “Our technology teams have built market leading solutions that solve the complexity of local payments and Robert will support and inspire them to achieve even greater levels of innovation and service delivery.”
