A graduate of the University of York, Lloyd has held senior commercial leadership roles at Ebury and Airwallex, as UK & IRE Managing Director and laterally as Head of EMEA.

Lloyd Hutchinson said: "I am delighted to be joining DNA at such an exciting time. As an integrated omnichannel payment provider, we enable our partners and merchants alike to grow and optimise their revenue base seamlessly against the backdrop of an ever-changing marketplace. As we tackle legacy incumbent players, we're establishing ourselves as a dominant force in the UK. Looking ahead, I will support the company's strategic growth programme, which focuses on expansion through strategic acquisition, moving into new geographical areas and driving our organic engines."

Andras joins DNA Payments Group with more than 17 years of experience in the financial services sector. He will be responsible for driving the Group's growth strategy, value creation, transformation, finance, and operational excellence, based at the company's London office.

Andras, who has an MBA from London Business School and an MA from the Corvinus University of Budapest, joins DNA Payments Group from Zepz (formally WorldRemit). At Zepz, he served as Group CFO overseeing finance, treasury, legal and compliance, and serving on the UK board. Before joining Zepz, he was the CFO at Ebury, working across multiple functions, and he worked at McKinsey for several years.

Andras Mecser commented: "The Group is at an inflection point of growth. I'm looking forward to proactively helping drive the strategy and pragmatic execution as we progress and expand, as part of a team that has made huge progress in building an integrated, omnichannel solution."
