Former Deko and Lebara Money CTO will spearhead technology strategy and innovation.
PCI Pal, the global cloud provider of secure payment solutions for business communications, today announced the appointment of Mufti Monim as Chief Technology Officer to direct the strategic technical vision for the company.
Mufti joins PCI Pal from eko, the retail finance cloud technology provider where, as CTO, he led the product and engineering teams, developing a market leading platform used by more than 1700 merchants and processing more than 2 million credit applications, worth in excess of £2bn.
Prior to working at Deko, Mufti was Head of Technology at Lebara Money, where he created an international money transfer platform, achieving £100 million worth of transfers within its first 12 months of operation.

Having established itself as the market leader for cloud solutions in its space, I’m thrilled to add my expertise in these areas to the existing management team at PCI Pal, and I see significant opportunities long into the future for both its technology and products,” said Mufti. “My previous two leadership roles have been at high-growth companies too, and I feel PCI Pal is at a hugely interesting stage of its development having established significant foundations for its cloud business globally to date.”
