PayPoint has expanded its senior management team by appointing Andrew Goddard to the new role of retail director.

Goddard joins from American Express, where he was responsible for forging partnerships with banks and retailers. He has held senior sales and marketing roles at ENOC and Exxon.

PayPoint MD Seamus Smith said Goddard brought “20 years of experience to lead the transformation of our retailer proposition”.

“Retail has always been at the heart of what PayPoint is all about and Andrew’s appointment is the latest in a succession of major investments we have made to deliver real improvements in service provision for them,” Smith said.

Goddard added: “Working with PayPoint’s retail partners to create new business opportunities together is a very exciting prospect.

“As consumers change their habits and demand an ever-growing range of services closer to home and with easy access, we can help retailers deliver those services, grow their businesses and improve their profitability.”
