Paysafe snaps up Standard Chartered director for chief banking role
Payments platform provider Paysafe has hired Noah Sharp as its new chief banking officer.
Sharp joins from Standard Chartered where he was responsible for building and advising the bank’s fintech client franchise in Europe and North America.
Prior to his roles in Standard Chartered, Sharp spent 11 years at Deutsche Bank working as a corporate banker, managing global relationships for European and US headquartered fintechs.
In his new role, Sharp will be responsible for a team acting as “a single interface” for all banking and payment partner relationships across the group.
“Having the very best portfolio of bank and payments partners who really understand our business continues to be a critical enabler,” says Danny Chazonoff, Paysafe chief operating officer.
“Noah and his team will act as a consolidated relationship lead on behalf of our financial partners and identify opportunities to work with new providers where needed.”
According to to Chazonoff, the investment in the newly created role was critical for the company as it continues its growth strategy.
Sharp isn’t the only banker that Paysafe has poached recently. It hired Sujit Unni, former managing director for Barclays’ UK business and lending platforms, as its new chief technology officer in January.
