By Gloria Methri
Conferma Pay has announced the appointment of Jason Lalor as Chief Executive Officer. The appointment follows Conferma Pay’s acquisition by Sabre Corporation in August 2022, and its new partnership and minority investment by Mastercard in November 2022.
Lalor brings more than 20 years of leadership experience in commercial operations, strategy development and partner engagement at some well-known and innovative FinTech companies. He most recently served as Chief Executive of Square’s European business, headquartered in Dublin, as well as serving as Executive Director on several of Square’s international Boards.
Before joining Square, he spent over six years with Mastercard in various roles, including General Manager of Ireland and Vice President of European Digital and FinTech Partnerships. He has previously held senior roles at Barclaycard, American Express and Dell.
“We are delighted to have Jason join Conferma Pay as CEO during this pivotal year in our payments journey,” said Roshan Mendis, Chief Commercial Officer, Sabre Travel Solutions. “He brings extensive commercial leadership experience and a deep understanding of the payments ecosystem. This will be integral in advancing our goal to accelerate the digitization of business-to-business (B2B) travel payments.”
Lalor’s appointment marks the next step in Conferma Pay’s and Sabre’s payments journey. Leaning into Conferma Pay’s partnerships with Sabre and Mastercard, Lalor will lead the company to build enhanced digital capabilities in virtual cards, transforming the payment experience for the travel industry.
“I have already been impressed by the dynamic and inspirational team at Conferma Pay,” said Lalor. “It is clear that its people are one of Conferma Pay’s greatest assets and I look forward to working with so many of the payment industry’s brightest minds. This is an exciting time to be working in payments, and the new investments have given Conferma Pay the opportunity to be at the forefront of developments, which will help ensure that we continue to meet the fast-evolving needs of our customers.”
