B4B Payments welcomes Chief Commercial Officer Craig Simpson

B4B Payments is a prepaid payments solutions company specialising in streamlining B2B payments using prepaid expenses cards, innovative payroll solutions and employee incentives. B4B Payments’ goal is to revolutionise business payments and payroll to make payouts quicker, more efficient, and cost-effective for everyone involved.

B4B Payments are today very proud to announce that a new member is joining the team. Craig Simpson, an MBA-qualified business development professional with over 15 years of experience in the payments sector, has recently been welcomed onboard by the B4B Payments team. The company is incredibly excited to work with Craig, who will no doubt be a valuable asset to B4B Payments.

Craig Simpson’s background includes experience as the Head of Business Development at a world-leading payment card technology company, as well as years as the Head of Business Development with Flex-e-Card, a company specialising in gift vouchers and prepayment cards. As he moves over to join the B4B Payments group, everyone involved is expecting big things from the new partnership. Craig’s immense experience in business development in the business payments sector will no doubt be invaluable to B4B Payments.

Paul Swinton, CEO and Founder for B4B Payments has said of the move, “We’re so excited to welcome Craig Simpson to the team; there’s no doubt that he’s going to be valuable to our work here. With 15 years of experience in business and sales roles and an MBA under his belt, Craig’s CV speaks for itself. At B4B Payments, we’re always looking to the future to innovate and adapt, and Craig’s many years of experience in both business development and payments will no doubt help us to stay at the forefront of payments technology.”

B4B Payments has already made a name for itself as a leader in business payments and prepaid business cards. Founded in 2006 as Payment Card Solutions, B4B Payments has been an FCA authorised Payments Institute since 2017. 2020 was a good year for B4B Payments, as the company expanded into new offices in both the USA and Europe, and this new hire of Craig Simpson is part of B4B Payments’ ongoing growth. The company is no doubt on an upward trajectory, with huge developments occurring over the past few years, including becoming a mastercard® principal member, EMI status, and winning the Best Prepaid Product of the Year at the Cards and Payments Awards in 2019. When coming on board, Craig said, “I am really excited to be joining B4B Payments at such an exciting time in its growth trajectory. We have big plans for expansion, industry leading technology and products, and a fantastic team in place. I believe that B4B Payments has a very bright future, and I am glad to be part of it.”

With new talent on board, B4B Payments is well placed to take on the international prepaid card industry in 2021 and beyond. The company’s strong record of award-winning products and services over the past decade and a half is the perfect match for Craig Simpson’s similarly strong record of exceeding sales targets throughout his career; in 2021, B4B Payments is set to go from strength to strength.
