PCI-PAL PLC (AIM: PCIP), the global cloud provider of secure payment solutions for business communications, is pleased to announce the appointment of two additional members to its PCI Pal Advisory Committee ("PAC"), effective 1 September 2021.

The PAC is not a Board committee and members will not have any Board authority or responsibility.
Ms.Emilia D'Anzica is a highly respected customer success expert and joins the PAC with more than twenty years of customer success experience. Emilia is Managing Director and Founder of Growth Molecules, a San Francisco-based management consulting firm, focused exclusively on Customer Success. Previously, Emilia has held senior positions, and has been an early-stage employee, at several successful high-growth SaaS companies including WalkMe, the Forbes Cloud 100 unicorn, where she was VP of Customer Engagement.
Mr Jayesh ("Jay") Patel joins PCI Pal as an advisor with existing knowledge of the business having previously been Chief Product Officer at Vonage Inc, a PCI Pal integrated reseller partner, and a leading global cloud provider of business communications solutions covering UCaaS1, CCaaS2, and CPaaS3 products. Across his career, Jay has built up extensive experience leading teams at highly successful international technology companies, such as Motorola and Google, in the development and implementation of product and operational strategies for emerging technologies and market trends. Jay is based in Chicago.
Commenting on the appointment of two additional advisors to the PAC, Simon Wilson, Chairman of PCI Pal and the PAC, said:
"I'm delighted to welcome Emilia and Jay to our advisory committee at an exciting time of growth and strategic expansion for PCI Pal. In April we raised incremental funding to support the future expansion of our sales internationally and to continue to build our long-term strategic plans. The deep customer success, product management, and cloud experience and leadership skills brought by Emilia and Jay, particularly in the U.S., are highly relevant to the Company's strategic plan. Together with our existing PAC member, Neira Jones, who is an expert in the global payments industry, the PAC now gives both the Board and senior management access to diverse, expert and global viewpoints from leaders across three key areas that will underpin our future growth."
