 “We are honored that a distinguished industry leader like Paul Galant chose TRANSACT for his first major speaking appearance as VeriFone’s CEO,” said Jason Oxman, CEO of ETA. “VeriFone innovations power millions of global payments transactions, and we are excited to hear Paul’s vision for the future of our payments and technology.  With a near sold-out show floor, incredible networking, and speakers from every major global payments company, TRANSACT is the single best place to do business in payments, technology and commerce”.

Paul Galant was recently named VeriFone’s Chief Executive Officer. Prior to joining VeriFone, Galant served as the CEO of Citigroup Inc.’s Enterprise Payments business since 2010. In this role, Galant developed innovative digital payments services for Citi’s institutional and government clients, enabling them to expand into growth markets and helping them to meet their consumers’ current and future needs for secure mobile payments and commerce.  Before that, from 2009, Galant served as CEO of Citi Cards, heading Citigroup’s North American and International Consumer Credit Cards business during a period of dramatic change in the industry and positioned it for growth.

“Our industry is undergoing an exciting and significant change as technology, consumer behavior and business models continue to rapidly evolve, creating new opportunities to enable commerce across the ecosystem,” Galant stated “TRANSACT is the perfect venue to address industry leaders looking to navigate the bold new world of payments.”
