MYPINPAD, Licentia Group appoint Colin Greene CEO

Colin Greene has been appointed CEO of Licentia Group and MYPINPAD. Greene worked at Apple for 13 years, where he most recently led the US channel retail business. Previously in a career spanning more than three decades, he occupied executive leadership roles within the likes of NCR, Intel, and Dell. His main focus in the new position will be to spearhead the global deployment of Licentia’s PCI-certified PIN on Mobile solution and emerging contactless on smart device technology.

MYPINPAD, a Licentia Group company focuses on software-based PIN entry on smartphones and tablets, and contactless payments on Android platforms. MYPINPAD’s technology sees point-of-sale terminals and PIN entry mPOS devices replaced by iOS and Android smartphones and tablets running secure payment software. This technology will, the company says, reduce cost and complexity throughout the face-to-face payment value-chain, while enabling customers to leverage a data-rich environment of connected smart devices.

Greene will also oversee the ongoing expansion of MYHSM, another Licentia company which offers payment Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) as-a-service. As with MYPINPAD, MYHSM removes the need for customers to invest in single-use hardware to process payments.

Colin Greene said: “We now have the opportunity to take that customer experience to the next level with MYPINPAD, and to transform the global face-to-face payments ecosystem. The MYPINPAD team possesses unequalled innovation and payments technology expertise to deliver on that promise. I cannot wait to get started.”

Phil King, MYPINPAD Chairman, said: “Colin’s appointment is a pivotal moment for the Licentia Group and MYPINPAD. His experience is perfectly aligned with our ambitions. I can think of no better person to head up our rapidly expanding business. Together we will build on our position as the global leader in this extremely specialised area, mass-deploy our technology, transform everyday phones and tablets into secure payment terminals and change payments acceptance forever.”
