Nathalie Vandepeute appointed as CEO of ‘Bancontact Payconiq Company’

Since the 29th of June, Nathalie Vandepeute (53) has been at the helm of the new Bancontact Payconiq Company. She will use her many years of experience to try and get as many Belgians as possible to pay using their mobile phones. Her main goal is to launch a unique, single payment app and to simplify electronic and mobile payments for consumers and merchants.

The merger between Bancontact Company and Payconiq Belgium was announced at the end of March. The new Bancontact Payconiq Company was established on the initiative of five Belgian banks: AXA Bank, Belfius, BNP Paribas Fortis, ING and KBC. Since the end of March, both the Bancontact and Payconiq teams have been working closely together on the new story. “I am really looking forward to working with this enthusiastic and talented team. Together we will build the payment model of the future”, says Vandepeute.

A single payment app

Bancontact Payconiq Company will launch more innovative products in the future. The key product will be a single payment app for mobile payments which will combine the surprising simplicity of the Payconiq app with the great scope of the Bancontact app. As Vandepeutes’ life motto states: “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”
