Leadership changes for Fonix’s next stage of growth
We’re hugely proud of our headway over the last year, which included the admission of Fonix to AIM. In the year ended 30 June 2021, the total payment volume of mobile payments grew by 10% to £233.4m, while gross profit advanced 13% to £11.3m. With more growth on the horizon, we are delighted to announce some exciting updates from the Fonix team.
With an increased focus on contactless and frictionless payments, the opportunity has never been greater for mobile carrier billing to be at the forefront of the digital payment space.
Roles and responsibilities have needed to evolve to stay ahead of our markets’ needs and to match our personal strengths; the changes can ensure continued success.
We have re-organised our Commercial unit, redefining our commercial development plans, led by Anthony Baladi, to support our ambitions in driving more merchants across our core markets. This will see a doubling of the business development team, expanding our plans in the Transport and Mobility and Media and Broadcast sectors.
With our existing client partnerships being the heartbeat of everything we do, we have also formed a dedicated Client Success and Partnerships (CSP) team which will be headed up by Steve George.
We are also delighted to announce the promotion of Clare Charles to Head of Client Management within the CSP team. Clare has been with Fonix since 2015 and has been instrumental in the management of a number of our major clients in the media and charity space. Clare will continue to focus on supporting and growing our existing clients, with the Client Services team reporting directly to her.
With everything we do underpinned by our people and our technology, Fonix’s development team is working on a number of new and exciting projects to develop and enhance our payment portfolio. In line with this we are also delighted to announce the promotion of Martha Kearns, who has been with Fonix since 2014, to a new position as Product Owner. Martha will oversee the Product roadmap and the delivery of key projects, ensuring we continue to innovate and grow in the ever changing payments and engagement landscape. Martha already has her feet well and truly under the desk and we know she will continue to build on her success at Fonix.
With a number of great opportunities in the pipeline, market-leading mobile payment technology and an excellent team, we have fantastic foundations for Fonix’s next phase — and we hope you’ll join us for the next stage in our journey.
