Docherty says that they what Oztix has; the experience, marketing knowledge, and security, will be good for the continued growth of PleezPay. He adds that the company culture that Oztix has built is a key part of their success, and that he speaks for the rest of PleezPay when he says that they’re excited to become part of the family.
On top of announcing their acquisition of PleezPay, Oztix also released some juicy details on several major internal changes to the staff, which include the appointment of several new people in key positions:
- Steve Tassone as General Manager;
- Jim Cunningham as National Operations Manager;
- Amy Gates as NSW and ACT Business Development Manager, and;
