Boku Signs Deal With Sprint, Adds Visa Exec
Boku reached an agreement with Sprint that will allow the wireless carrier’s customers to charge online purchases directly to their Sprint accounts using Boku’s technology. Sprint had been the only major U.S. carrier without an agreement in place with Boku.
The mobile payment enabler also announced two key hirings: Jon Prideaux, former executive vice president at Visa, is the company’s new chief business officer; and former Barclaycard managing director Stuart Neal is the new senior vice president of business development, according to VentureBeat.
A full release from Boku regarding its new deal with Sprint is available online.
