EBANX, the Brazillian fintech unicorn that processes payments for global companies in Latin America and owns LABS, announced Paula Bellizia as its new partner and president of Global Payments. Following senior leadership roles at Google, Microsoft, and Apple, the executive will lead the fintech’s global teams of sales, marketing, operations, and expansion, currently located across the Americas, Asia, and Europe.
With more than 29 years of experience and coming from Google, where she was VP of Marketing for Latin America, Bellizia will focus on further expanding the range of EBANX services, with an emphasis on growing the fintech’s global customer portfolio and consolidating the company’s brand.
“EBANX has a consistent trajectory, launching products and services that open many doors: from the business to consumer market, from consumers to the best brands, and from a digital economy that creates more access and fosters ecosystems,” said Paula Bellizia, the new president of Global Payments at EBANX.
“I am thrilled with the challenge of continuing and accelerating this work alongside all the talents at EBANX.”
Bellizia will further strengthen the executive team led by co-founder and CEO of EBANX, João Del Valle. “We are so pleased by the arrival of Paula, who will help us level up at a significant moment in the history of EBANX, the payments industry at large, and the global digital market. She will further accelerate our growth and the reach of our customers, bringing with her exceptional career experience and expertise, as well as an unparalleled affinity with topics that are so important to us, such as technology, diversity, and access,” said Del Valle.
Bellizia joins the EBANX executive team during a period of fast growth and expansion. Over the past eight months, the company has announced the opening of an office in Mexico, and the acquisition of Brazilian fintechs Remessa Online and Juno. All of this follows Advent International’s $430 million investment in EBANX in June 2021.
