According to van Biljon,“The existing management team has laid a great foundation for the company and there will be no shortage of opportunities for Stanchion in both local and international markets. The payments industry is evolving at a rapid pace with innovation at the heart of many changes. Stanchion is ideally placed to be part of this journey.”
van Biljon will be responsible for developing existing and new products as the company seeks to raise its profile and take advantage of additional opportunities in the segment.
Having previously been the VP for Africa at ACI Worldwide, van Biljon brings with him a proven track record at running a payments services and software organisation.
“Deon is a disciplined, structured, and analytical thinker that compliments the spontaneous, creative, and entrepreneurial culture already entrenched within Stanchion,” says Williams.
Current MD Graham Williams will hand over to van Biljon over a period of several months to turn his focus to building the business internationally.
