Frankfurt am Main, November 29, 2022. Following the merger of Nets and Nexi along with all subsidiary and affiliated companies into the Nexi Group, the company is introducing a new management structure on its path to becoming the leading European Paytech company with a natural local approach. The local go-to-market strategy will be implemented through four European regions. The DACH region, Nordic countries, Central and Southeast Europe, as well as Italy, will each be overseen by a Chief Regional Officer. This new setup allows for consideration of the national specifics in the payment and banking structures, ensuring that individual business units remain close to employees and customers, enabling agile responses to dynamics. Simultaneously, customer companies and Nexi teams will benefit from the innovation and scale of the entire group. This will contribute to continuing Nexi's ambitious growth trajectory successfully in Germany and the DACH region. The new management structure will be introduced across Europe at the beginning of next year..
