Dwolla hires Dave Glaser as new COO
Payments platform Dwolla has hired Dave Glaser as its new president and chief operating officer (COO).
Glaser is charged with “enhancing the company’s enterprise growth strategies” and building “world-class customer onboarding”.
He joins the firm from Mastercard, where he worked as senior vice president of global acceptance solutions. Glaser also had an 18-year career at companies Worldpay, Visa, and CyberSource.
At Mastercard, Glaser “spearheaded” new point-of-sale (POS) initiatives, including the industry’s “first CloudPOS acceptance technology”.
While at Worldpay he led the firm’s initial public offering (IPO) and $10.4 billion merger with Vantiv.
“Dave’s breadth of experience in scaling large organisations is critical as we continue to expand our enterprise payment services,” says Dwolla CEO, Brady Harris.
“With his help, we’ll continue to build innovative products, implement operational efficiencies and automations that drive competitive advantages for our customers.”
Glaser’s arrival comes almost a year after Dwolla hired Harris as its new CEO. The company says it has a “deep bench” of payments expertise.
Dwolla currently supports more than $20 billion a year in gross payment volume. It claims to have experienced 100% year-on-year (YoY) growth.
“Companies around the world are embracing the move to digital payments, seeking fast, secure and simple solutions to transfer money,” says Glaser.
“I’m looking forward to working with the Dwolla team to drive growth and further solidify its position in the market as a modern payments platform.”
