Iliad Solutions grows North America presence



Mike Packer joins Iliad team to bring wider payments testing adoption in key market

September 01 2021 – Iliad Solutions, a global leader in payments testing, is pleased to announce that Mike Packer has joined its team as Senior Relationship Manager – North America. Packer brings 22 years’ of payment industry experience to the role with the last decade focused primarily on payment testing.

Commenting on his appointment, Packer said: “I am excited to be joining the Iliad team as they step up the introduction of cutting edge payment testing products across North America. My primary responsibility will be to expand relationships with Iliad’s clients and active prospects, serving as a subject-matter expert around payment testing infrastructure and process. I’ll review the client’s payment infrastructure to gain an understanding of both the current state and desired state – and introduce payment testing options which align with the organization’s proposed payment transformation objectives.”

With faster payment systems growing in the region, Iliad is primed to penetrate the North America markets further through the introduction of the leading payments testing solutions on its t3 platform. The t3 platform helps financial institutions that are bringing new products and wallets to market and migrating legacy systems to ISO 20022 standards. In addition, the platform can be used to manage certification and pre-certification. This reduces the effort required by financial institutions and enables schemes to offer a self-service portal for its members prior to launching new propositions.

Iliad Solutions CEO Anthony Walton added: “A tremendous amount of payment modernization activity is currently happening within the North American market. Mike’s appointment illustrates our commitment to North America as part of our global footprint.

Financial institutions are looking for proven solutions and experienced vendors to help expedite launch of payment solutions to market.  Iliad has an extensive and proven history supporting real-time payments and Open Banking. This experience, coupled with a robust, enterprise-ready testing platform, will continue to serves our North American prospects and clientele favorably.”
