Yoello has announced a new CFO, Gareth Roberts, and a new CCO, Anton Manley, who have been appointed to fit in with the payment platform’s expansion and growth plans.
Gareth Roberts has a wealth of experience under his belt, and was previously CFO and Executive Director for a number of international firms including Australian software company Whispir and British Insurer RSA Group.
Anton Manley, who starts in his new role on 1st February 2021, is moving from CCO at Webhelp where he helped grow the company from 1,500 to 65,000 employees.
Anton says: “I am delighted to be joining Yoello at such an exciting time, the business has already acquired outstanding talent and has a product that is in massive demand. I am excited at the prospect of driving the next phase in the business as we grow both in the UK and internationally.”
The firm has been working closely with local authorities and Business Improvement Districts since the start of the March 2020 lockdown to help businesses reopen and keep customers and venue employees safe.
Since launching the platform in July 2020, Yoello has supported thousands of venues across the UK and is now expanding internationally supporting the hospitality sector in Europe, North America and Australia.
The company has gone from strength to strength, having grown from 4 to 45 employees within a year, the company is expecting to surpass 100 employees in 2021 as the company expands internationally.
Sina Yamani, CEO and Founder of Yoello, says:
“Bringing people of Gareth and Anton’s calibre into the business is really showcasing our plans for future growth. Gareth’s knowledge and experience, in particular within start-ups, makes him a crucial asset to the business, and as is Anton’s experience in various executive roles at fast-growing international companies such as Webhelp. We have some really exciting plans for 2021 as we continue to expand into international markets with an incredible team to push Yoello to the next stage!”
These new positions come after several award wins for Yoello including Technology Business of the Year at the Cardiff Business Awards and one of the UK’s Top ‘Rising Stars’ at Tech Nation.
