Commenting on Jan’s arrival, Lena Hackelöer, founder and CEO at Brite Payments said:
Jan’s appointment to the board follows a year of hypergrowth for the instant payment provider, with
two significant developments already announced in 2022, and further ambitious plans throughout the
year. This year, Brite Payments announced its partnership with SOFORT, allowing merchants to
activate Brite’s innovative instant payout solution and disburse funds to consumers within seconds; and it’s a ‘Single-Sign’ product that rivals credit card use for payments in its speed and convenience.
