Author: Barclaycard
Industry: Financial

Barclaycard has appointed Jim Wadsworth as its Head of Strategic Product Management for Prepaid. In his new role, Jim will be responsible for driving forward Barclaycard's prepaid card activities in the public and private sector.

Jim joins Barclaycard from JP Morgan where, for the past two years, he was responsible for developing and launching its prepaid and commercial credit card offerings in the UK and Europe. Prior to this role, Jim was Chief Marketing Officer of Simpay, the pan-European mobile payment initiative and has also held the position of head of m-commerce at Vodafone UK.

Commenting on his appointment, Jim, a former board director of the Prepaid International Forum, said: "I'm excited by Barclaycard's commitment to payment innovation and am looking forward to leveraging Barclaycard's extensive commercial payments activities by developing new prepaid products for both the public and private sector."

In August 2009, Barclaycard published figures about their customer numbers that showed that it has 11.9m UK customers, 11.8m international customers and 88,000 retailer/merchant relationships. In addition to the UK, Barclaycard operates in the United States, Europe, Africa and the Middle and Far East.

Barclaycard also issues charge and credit cards to corporate customers and the UK Government. Barclaycard partners with a wide range of organisations across the globe to offer their customers or members payment options and credit cards.
