People on the Move: Craig James, Prepaid International Forum Board
International nonprofit trade association, Prepaid International Forum (PIF) today announced the appointment of Craig James, CEO of Neopay, as chairman of the PIF board of directors. James, who has been serving on the PIF board since 2012, succeeds Robert Courtneidge whose two-year term of office has ended. Courtneidge will continue to serve as a member of the PIF board and executive committee.
PIF was established in 2007 to promote and shape the development of prepaid as a payment solution for consumers, corporates and governments. As a representative body for the industry PIF, which is based in London, acts as principal point of liaison between the industry and government agencies, regulators, consumer bodies and the media.
“Regulatory change and other developments continue to test the industry,” said James. “Under Robert’s guidance PIF has taken important steps to ensure our industry is represented and the practicalities of operating in this sector are taken into account in our dealings with policy-makers. As we expand our membership it is an essential part of PIF’s role to add the experience and expertise of our members to these debates.”
