Betcade brings in Barclay to head up European operations

14 March 2016

Betcade, the first dedicated Android app store for the gaming market, has named Paul Barclay as general manager of its European business.

Barclay, who previously served as global vice-president at WorldPay and Skrill, will lead payments and operations at Betcade.

In addition, Barclay will head up Betcade’s newly opened office in London.

“I started working with online payments when this thing called the internet came along; no one really new what they were doing and we had to build out the businesses by trial and error,” Barclay said.

“20 years on, the boundaries and possibilities of mobile/internet payment are continually changing and evolving.

“I wanted to join Betcade because they are delivering a solution, driven by consumer demand.”

David Chang, chief executive of Betcade, added: “I believe it’s rare to find someone of Paul’s knowledge and time spent in the industry that still thinks creatively about solutions and looks at issues from different perspectives.

“He has spent a lot of energy challenging our assumptions and I think it should signal to the industry that what he discovered was attractive enough to want to be a part of.”
