|MasterCard makes APMEA debit and prepaid appointments
Pair take on new Asia Pacific roles
MasterCard has made two appointments in the Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa (APMEA) region.
Robert Keenan will be taking on the role of Asia/Pacific region lead for debit and Jason Tymms will take over as prepaid lead for the Asia/Pacific, Middle East and Africa region.
Keenan, who has been with MasterCard since March 2005, will be responsible for developing and growing the company’s debit products and innovations in the Asia/Pacific region. In his most recent position, he was responsible for leading debit in the UK & Ireland and the Eastern European markets.
Among his achievements are the deployments of Maestro PayPas™ and a Maestro e-commerce solution, as well as the launch of World and World Elite for Europe.
Prior to joining MasterCard, Keenan was with Switch Card Services, the former local debit scheme in the UK, where he was senior business manager.
Jason Tymms, who was previously the business leader of prepaid product management for Australasia since 2011, will be relocating to Singapore to take on his new role of prepaid lead for the APMEA region.
He has played a major role in driving MasterCard’s prepaid initiatives across Australasia, and was part of the team that led the development of the Australia Post, Qantas, and National Australia travel card programmes.
Prior to joining MasterCard in 2011, he worked with ANZ in Melbourne, Australia for four years as their prepaid product manager.
