TNS promotes industry veteran for FinTech payments

Transaction Network Services (TNS) has appointed payments industry veteran John Tait to the newly created position of global managing director for its FinTech payments business.

Based in Australia, he will take responsibility for TNS’ payments teams across the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific regions, which now serve customers in over 60 countries.

Tait originally joined the company in 2016 as managing director for Asia Pacific, taking on a position on the TNS Asia Pacific advisory board in 2018. In 2019, his role was expanded to include management of the newly-acquired ADVAM business.

“The TNS team is made up of dedicated professionals that have been working tirelessly during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure that our customers can continue to trade under a complicated mix of differing local conditions," Tait commented. "Among other things, our robust infrastructure has seamlessly responded to the significant rise in the number of contactless transactions.”

During his tenure at TNS, Tait has helped the company expand into new markets and, more recently, has been pivotal to the integration of ADVAM. Prior to TNS, he held senior roles at Indue, First Data and National Australia Bank.

“John’s appointment to this new global role is a significant development for TNS as we continually refine both our short and long term growth plans,” said Mike Keegan, TNS’ chief executive. “His ability to understand the unique and complicated perspectives of our customers will be critical to delivering solutions that address these in a model that is committed to mutual success.”

TNS' payment solution include parking reservations, unattended payments, point-of-sale services, ATM connectivity and managed processing.
