BridgerPay, a payments intelligence platform, announced that it has opened an office in Israel and hired Or Gannot as Business Development Manager for regional expansion. Gannot previously held the role of VP Sales at ZotaPay for more than 5 years.
According to the official press release shared with Finance Magnates, BridgerPay expressed happiness to enter into the founders’ home country, Israel after spending a couple of years in the business. The fintech company aims to take advantage of Gannot’s broad experience in sales and revenue growth along with his strong background in relationship management and his ability to deal with institutional clients.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to join BridgerPay and open the Israeli branch. I have been in the payments space for a while now, and I’m very excited to join such an innovative team with the mission of making payments easy,” Gannot mentioned.
He also served as a lawyer at Tel Aviv District Attorney Office for nearly 2 years.
The recent announcement of regional expansion and joining of Gannot came around 2 months after BridgerPay secured Nati Harpaz as an Executive Director in November 2020. The company is planning to accelerate regional expansion with the opening of its Israeli office.
“We are honored to welcome Or to the team and excited to join the Israeli landscape of unicorns, as Israel has become a hub for fast-growing global startups, like Wix and Monday.com. We are proud to have such talented and forward-thinking people join our team as we expand,” BridgerPay mentioned in the official announcement.
Finance Magnates earlier reported about Equiti Group’s announcement to collaborate with BridgerPay in order to increase its payment solutions. The fintech company has been able to form several partnerships with different financial firms around the world in 2020.
“BridgerPay built a bridge between payment providers and merchants to make payments easy. Our payment orchestration solves the toughest payment challenges online businesses face today,” Ran Cohen, Co-founder, and CEO of BridgerPay said during a discussion with Finance Magnates last year.
