“I’m thrilled to be joining the incredibly talented team at KodyPay at this exciting time of rapid growth.” Sophie Haagensen commented. ” In-person payments continue to lag online payments for speed and convenience, and I believe KodyPay has the vision and the execution capability to change this. I’m delighted to join them in this quest, and the opportunity to build and grow another successful FinTech is a genuine privilege.”
