Expanding the European footprint for the leading mobile value transfer company
Berwyn, PA April 15, 2014 — Prepay Nation, a leading provider of cross-border microvalue and prepaid mobile airtime transfers, has brought on telecom business leader Hervé Perrin as VP of Business Development. Perrin joins Prepay Nation’s team of mobile ecosystem innovators with a mandate to expand the company’s European operations, as well as to invest his expertise in their ongoing development of new and exciting use cases for their award-winning platform.
A globally successful strategist, marketer, and change manager with a significant focus in the telecommunications sector and the EMEA region, Perrin comes to Prepay Nation from director-level positions across the mobile landscape, including MVNO, B2C prepaid airtime transfer, and consultancy organizations.
With 20 years of global leadership experience at companies such as Set Mobile, Telenor, Moov (subsidiary of Etisalat), Intercel, Telecel, Afritel, and XTS Network, he has worked with and consulted for some of the largest mobile operators in the industry. He is also the founder of Minute Transfer, one of the very first international mobile top-up (IMTU) companies in the world, and served as the startup Managing Director of the first MVNO in sub-Saharan Africa.
Perrin’s achievements bode well for Prepay Nation. His unique profile of having worked at MNOs, MVNOs, vendors and consultancies gives him a valuable perspective on what Prepay Nation has to offer. As the organization seeks to bring their flexible airtime transfer platform to mobile network operators and service providers around the globe for a variety of use cases, Perrin’s intimate understanding of their needs will prove invaluable.
“Perrin is a strong addition to our team,” said Ajay Goyal, President of Prepay Nation. “He has the kind of insight that can guide us in developing partnership opportunities, as he so clearly knows the inner workings and pain points of our target clients. His success speaks to his abilities, and we are excited to work with him on even greater success for Prepay Nation.”
“Prepay Nation has built not only an impressive global network of operators and retailers, but also a platform so flexible that it presents an incredible opportunity for innovation,” added Perrin. “I am looking forward to breaking new ground on use cases for their airtime transfer platform—use cases that will disrupt and lead the market.”
