GFG Group has appointed Andreas Kazamias chief executive officer, based in Auckland.
It’s a new position in the company, which has been run by an executive director, Dennis Row.
GFG Group Chairman Ralph Green says the new appointment is highly strategic, as the electronic payments and services solutions company looks to accelerate growth for its products and services, particularly in developing countries across Africa, Asia and South America.
Originally from Australia, Kazamias is currently global CIO for online foreign exchange trading group Easy Forex, based at the company’s headquarters in Cyprus.
Kazamias will take up the new CEO role at GFG Group on Monday March 11.
He has a long association with the company, beginning when he selected GFG Group’s card system while CEO of FBME in Cyprus.
“In regions such as Latin America, that are just starting to make the switch to chip card technology, GFG Group’s PCI-compliant systems have an advantage,” Kazamias says.
“I also see major opportunities in expanding group’s footprint through third-party sales and support channels.”
