Payoneer, John Caplan, Co-Chief Executive Officer, Core Corporate Functions, SMBs, Alibaba.com, Digital Economy, Appointment, USAPayoneer, the commerce technology company powering payments and growth for the new global economy, recently appointed John Caplan co-Chief Executive Officer and Director alongside current CEO Scott Galit, effective immediately. Galit and Caplan will lead the firm as co-CEOs during a transition period through the end of 2023 when Caplan will take the helm as CEO and Galit will continue in a strategic role.

Caplan will use his deep experience working with global companies to drive Payoneer’s growth at scale, expand the company’s suite of products, and serve customers who are scaling businesses in today’s digital economy, all in close collaboration with Galit.

Caplan will assume leadership over the business organisation and core corporate functions. Galit will continue to oversee Payoneer’s regulated activities and lead the delivery functions that underpin the business.

“I have known John professionally for several years and have great admiration and respect for his accomplishments and his values. We share a vision of how the digital world is transforming global commerce, how SMBs have a bigger role to play, and how today’s great companies must be built around customer and employee centricity,” stated Scott Galit. “The opportunities in front of Payoneer and our customers are vast. The Board of Directors and I believe the next decade will require transformational leadership to match those opportunities. I am excited to partner with John as Payoneer continues to build a platform tailor-fit for the new global economy.”

Caplan is an executive, investor, and entrepreneur with a track record of scaling companies in the digital economy. Most recently, he was President of North America and Europe at Alibaba.com, the cross-border B2B business unit of Alibaba Group. In this role, he helped lead its transformation into one of Alibaba Group’s fastest-growing and most profitable business units. Caplan joined Alibaba’s team in 2017 following its acquisition of OpenSky, an SMB software platform he founded in 2009, which empowered e-commerce SMBs to optimise their distribution across marketplaces.

“I am delighted to welcome John to Payoneer. He is an inspiring leader and experienced company-builder,” said Avi Zeevi, Chairman of Payoneer. “Payoneer is a global brand trusted by millions of businesses in over 190 countries and territories worldwide. The Board is confident John and Scott will be a great team that will leverage Payoneer’s assets and current momentum to lead us into our next chapter of growth.”

“I’m thrilled to be joining Payoneer,” added John Caplan. “Payoneer has robust financials, an industry leading portfolio of services, a large and growing global customer base and a trusted partnership ecosystem that cannot be easily replicated. We have the can-do spirit, capability, trusted brand, talented and diverse global team to engage and serve businesses worldwide, and in doing so create shareholder value for many years to come.”

“This is the time for us to be even bolder as we continue to build. I am honored to partner with Scott and the Payoneer team to do just that, carrying on the company’s mission of bringing a universe of opportunities to businesses of any size, anywhere in the world,” continued Caplan.
