Talking about his new appointment, Paysafe board chair Stuart Harvey Jr stated that they are delighted to have someone like Philip taking on the role of their new CEO, and that his focus on serving customers and proven ability to drive operations within complex financial organisations has led to a number of strong results throughout his career so far.
