SIX Payment Services in Austria has appointed a new managing director, Christian Renk. His new role will be in addition to his position as Head Merchant Services of Austria. Former Managing Director, Roger Niederer, who held this position on an interim basis alongside his role as the global head of Merchant Services at SIX Payment Services, will now focus exclusively on his original area of responsibility.

As a market leader in Austria, Switzerland and Luxembourg, SIX has become one of the largest European card transaction processors in the region. For more than 35 years, the company has established itself as a reliable partner for card acceptance, POS-Terminals and E-commerce solutions for retailers in Austria.

The Austrian office has always been a crucial home market and is of high strategic importance to SIX Payment Services.

"We are very pleased to welcome Christian Renk, an industry insider who is joining the management team in Austria and will further drive the successful development of the business", says Marc Schluep, Head of Business Unit Cards, which is also a part of SIX Payment Services operations in Austria.

"I am particularly looking forward to further expanding our business relationships with retailers and partner banks in the exciting and dynamic environment of the payment industry and helping to shape the future. SIX Payment Services in Austria will continue to play a pioneering role in the future", says Christian Renk.

Christian has many years of experience as Managing Director and brings with him a great deal of expertise and know-how in the payment industry. Previously, he was Managing Director of Klarna (formerly Sofort AG) and was managing well-known E-Commerce and sports betting companies.
