Passing the baton on a remarkable legacy

alt text

A staunch entrepreneur might attest that when a business is steadily soaring on an upwards path, the next step is to “go big or go home”.

The fintechs of our time are like any wave-making startup – they are not meant to stagnate. They strive to break barriers, effect change, and take quantum leaps in a fraction of the time it took preceding businesses, by being at the forefront of digital transformation. And that’s exactly how Payvision evolved over the last 18 years since its inception.

Rudolf (Chief Executive Officer), Gijs (Chief Operating Officer) and Cheng (Chief Commercial Officer) started Payvision back in 2002, at a time when the world was just beginning to grasp online payments.

Traditional brick-and-mortar businesses were quickly learning that an online shop on their websites allowed them to tap into a new generation of customers – digital natives that embraced online shopping, and the convenience of paying virtually.

The advent of online shopping brought immense opportunity for merchants to take their businesses to a brand new arena, but many needed help in navigating the online payments landscape – someone to talk to them in plain English (or Dutch 😊), hook them up with a simple but ideal solution, and take care of all the little details needed for them to start selling online.

This is where Rudolf, Cheng and Gijs made a remarkable difference: by providing simple yet effective payments solutions, backed by cutting-edge technology and supported by the warmth, openness and creativity of the people behind Payvision.

The fast-paced world of e-commerce does not wait – you either seize the moment and grow, or skip it and hope for another chance, if any. Payvision’s founders recognized early on that the future of payments centred around boldly using technology, while keeping things friendly and intuitive for both merchant and consumer to handle.

Doing the right things the right way paid off over time. A few product spin-offs and adventures later brought Payvision’s three founders to  enter a new era of business. Now fully under ING’s wing, but still on an autonomous path, Payvision and its sole shareholder are combining their strengths to offer merchants the best of both worlds, marrying fintech with banking.

Rudolf, Gijs and Cheng have been the most amazing and empowering leaders, driving Payvision with passion and agility. They’ve grown along with the company, from a small card acquirer to a global payments processor with almost 300 employees, and have connected thousands of clients, merchants and partners into a cohesive, thriving business ecosystem. Their spirit and vision, inlaid in our strong human-centric culture, will continue to fire the ‘beat of payments’. 

Dear Rudolf, Gijs and Cheng, thank you for giving us a place and a family to belong to!
