We are excited to have Anisha join the team as she will ensure we are building the next generation of great leaders to address our demanding business needs,” says Neoh.
“2018 has been a great year for us in terms of empowering more businesses and their customers to go cashless. This year we are ready to take it to the next level and are excited to have Khuan Yew and Anisha join our team,” says Neoh.
