Previously, Cole held various lead positions in finance and technology, and most recently comes form First Data, where she was SVP and Strategic Account Leader for Bank of America Merchant Services.
In response to taking a new role at Seamless, Cole said in the release that she considered leading U.S. sales for the company to be a privilege.
“Mobile payments is growing dramatically and Seamless, through the mobile payment solution SEQR, has enormous opportunity to offer proven technology to the U.S. market. I am eager to get started,” she said.
