Paysafe has appointed Rob Gatto as the specialized payments platform’s first-ever Chief Revenue Officer (CRO), effective immediately.
As CRO, Gatto will direct Paysafe’s international sales function across several markets including gaming, travel, and entertainment, as well as the crypto and fintech industries.
In his new role, Gatto will report to Bruce Lowthers, Paysafe’s recently appointed CEO.
“Rob is an outstanding leader with a proven track record of implementing growth strategies that deliver positive top-line and bottom-line results,” commented Lowthers on Gatto’s appointment.
“His commercial acumen, tech savviness, and deep understanding of both market and customer needs will make him an invaluable member of the team as we transform the business and execute on our growth plan.”
Paysafe notes that Gatto is a “seasoned technology executive” with experience in delivering “transformational growth and ‘go to market’ functions” for private and public businesses. His most recent role was President and Co-Founder of Ureeka Inc, which helps small firms go to market and grow rapidly.
He has also held senior roles for several tech firms including Tubemogul (programmatic video platform acquired for $540m by Adobe Systems), NeuStar Inc (cloud-based, information services firm), and PointRoll Inc (digital marketing technology provider).
Gatto said regarding his new role: “I believe Paysafe is uniquely positioned to offer an unrivaled end-to-end payment offering to both consumers and merchants in the specialized industries it focuses on.
“I’m thrilled to be joining Bruce and the talented Paysafe team at such an exciting time and look forward to playing my part in driving some solid growth across the business.”
Back in July, Paysafe secured a deal with BetSaracen to secure entry into the Arkansas mobile sports betting market, marking the 22nd regulated US market it has entered.
