Azimo’s CEO Michael Kent shared with us his thoughts on the major changes that may be in store for the payments industry in the coming years. PYMNTS: WHAT ARE SOME OF THE BIGGEST THEMES, SUCCESSES OR CHALLENGES YOU’VE SEEN IN THE INDUSTRY THIS YEAR? MK: It’s been a great year for payments. There are more people wanting to talk about payments, putting money into payments, investing in payments and selling product to payments, so I think it’s been an amazing year for the industry. I think that 2015, for a lot of people, has been about raising money. Companies in retail and financial services, particularly payments, have raised a ton of capital. If 2015 is about raising the money then I think 2016 is going to be all about execution.
