Freemarket Expands Business Development Team with Key Additions
Freemarket, a fintech platform specializing in regulated B2B cross-border payments and currency exchange for small to medium-sized businesses, is further advancing its ambitious expansion strategy with two notable hires.
The company welcomes Martin White as Business Development Director and Kiran Ranu as Business Development Manager, following the recent addition of Annie Osborne as Business Development Director.
With over 30 years of experience, including 23 years in the payments industry, Martin White brings a wealth of expertise to Freemarket. His extensive background in senior positions at Barclaycard and Pay Future has enabled him to cultivate strong relationships within the gaming and gambling sectors.
White’s primary objective is to leverage his unparalleled experience and vast network to reinforce Freemarket’s presence in the gaming and gambling industries. Both sectors have been identified by Freemarket as prime targets for its cutting-edge platform and comprehensive range of solutions.
Kiran Ranu, with more than nine years of sales experience and a diverse background encompassing roles at Trustpilot, AAT, and TrueLayer, joins as Business Development Manager. Her expertise spans account management, recruitment, leadership, coaching, and new business development.
As part of the business development team, Ranu will collaborate with White and Osborne to expand Freemarket’s footprint within the global gambling and online gaming sector.
Freemarket offers a unified platform for seamless cross-border payments and currency exchange. Its standout features include access to a global bank and non-bank financial institution network, as well as innovative proprietary technology, all within a single solution. This empowers customers to streamline processes, simplify complexity, and enhance operational efficiency.
Integration with Freemarket is effortless, whether through API or web portal, and is supported by industry-leading infrastructure and computing services that prioritize security and resilience.
With the addition of Martin White and Kiran Ranu to its talented team, Freemarket is poised to accelerate its growth trajectory and deliver exceptional value to businesses in the gaming and gambling sectors.
Richard Harrison, Vice President of Sales at Freemarket, said: “With the appointments of Martin and Kiran, and the recent addition Annie, we have a highly experienced, knowledgeable and passionate business development team that will spearhead our growth in the online gambling and gaming sectors.
“Both bring a fantastic energy to the business, as well as the drive and tenacity that is very much central to our company. Their experience and network bolster the gambling team and I am very excited to see the huge impact that they will undoubtedly have.”
Martin White, Business Development Director at Freemarket, added: “I am thrilled to join the Freemarket family and to use my experience to help the business deploy and achieve its growth ambitions in the gambling space. This is a sector with many businesses in need of our cross-border payments and currency exchange solution and I’m excited to make more organisations aware of what we have to offer.”
Kiran Ranu, Business Development Manager at Freemarket, said: “Freemarket has built an incredible business development team and I’m proud to be a part of it. Together, we will help take our presence in the gambling space to the next level, helping businesses make cross-border payments and exchange currency faster and more efficiently than ever before.”
