Mr. Tanksley joined SimplePay in June of 2014 on behalf of Seedstars, a Swiss venture builder that is providing funding for SimplePay. His role was to put in place operational systems and processes that would allow SimplePay to scale massively. With these things now in place, Mr. Tanksley’s day-to-day role at SimplePay is complete.
“We are grateful to the contributions that Rich has made to SimplePay,” said Founder and CEO, Simeon Ononobi, “He really put in an amazing operational infrastructure that will help us take SimplePay to the next level. We are happy to still have him around in an advisory capacity”
