Gregor Dobbie, CEO, Vocalink

Mastercard company, Vocalink, has appointed their former Managing Director, Gregor Dobbie as the new CEO. Dobbie will be responsible for overseeing the expansion of B2B payment services across the UK and will keep a check on the company’s infrastructures.

According to various sources, the newly appointed CEO will join the Management Committee of Mastercard’s New Payment Platforms (NPP) and will report to the President of NPP, Paul Stoddart.

Paul Stoddart commented on the new appointment, “Gregor’s appointment as CEO of Vocalink is the natural next step for what has been a successful two years as UK MD. Gregor has a strong customer focus and recognizes the increasing importance of innovation and resilience across our services. He will continue to drive the development of compelling solutions which meet the evolving needs of our customers.”

Dobbie joined Vocalink’s Card Transaction Services business in 2014 as Director of Sales and Business Development, then was promoted to the role of Managing Director at Vocalink in 2015. He then went on to take up the role of the UK Managing Director in 2017. He has previously worked with Glory Global Solutions.

Gregor Dobbie commented, “The New Payment Platforms team is transforming global payments through services which range from national payments infrastructures to cutting-edge anti-fraud solutions. I am delighted to lead the dynamic and innovative Vocalink team, playing a key role in democratizing money globally through modernizing payment systems, reducing risk and speeding up payments for consumers and businesses. Together with our partners and customers, we’ll continue to enable the frictionless future of payments and help global economies and communities prosper.”

Recently, Vocalink partnered with Saudi Payments, a fully owned subsidiary of the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority (SAMA) in order to launch real-time payments in the Saudi Arabian kingdom.

It also partnered with ACI Worldwide in a bid to facilitate the adoption of real-time payments in Saudi Arabia with ACI’s UP Real-Time Payments solution and help the banks in lowering the risk associated with onboarding to the new real-time services.
