SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Adyen, the global payments technology provider, today announced the appointment of Warren Hayashi as President, Asia-Pacific, to spearhead Adyen’s continued expansion in Asia. The announcement follows a strong run of growth in the region for Adyen, which has recently expanded its relationships with global customers including Facebook, Airbnb and Evernote, and added new Asia-Pacific based customers such as foodpanda and Offgamers.
Warren joins from PayPal, where he served as the Head of Core Payments, Asia-Pacific. He brings 20 years of experience in payments and technology spanning Asia and Silicon Valley, giving him a deep understanding of the needs of fast growing global businesses in the complex Asian payments landscape. The announcement comes as Adyen rapidly expands its suite of international and local payment methods, enabling businesses to create better shopper experiences, simplify payment processes and ultimately grow revenue in the region. Adyen currently supports over 40 local payment methods in Asia, including Alipay, Tenpay and China UnionPay in China, JCB and Konbini in Japan, Mandiri clickpay, and AlfaGroup in Indonesia, Gcash and Bancnet in the Philippines, and Samsung and Hyundai cards in Korea.
"Asia-Pacific has some of the highest online and mobile commerce growth in the world, and there is a big opportunity to simplify payments,” said Warren. “I am tremendously excited at the unique value proposition Adyen offers to businesses in the region. Adyen simplifies payments with a single global solution that brings together payment processing, acquiring, risk management and a market-leading suite of local payment methods under one platform. Our technology allows merchants to focus on business expansion instead of investing precious resources to navigate the region’s complex payment landscape.”
“We have ambitious plans in Asia that we highlighted last December when we announced $250 million in funding from investors including Singapore-based Temasek,” said Pieter van der Does, CEO, Adyen. “Warren’s deep expertise in payments technology, as well as extensive experience across North America and Asia, mean he is the ideal lead to drive our growth forward in these crucial markets.”
