SwipeStation Makes Client Services Director Appointment
SwipeStation, the contact-free mobile payment service, has announced the appointment of Nick Barnett as Client Services Director to bolster its executive team and strengthen the management of the company’s growing client portfolio.
Nick Barnett joins SwipeStation having previously worked at Gloucester Rugby as Bar Operations Manager and a number of globally renowned venues including, Ascot, Ashton Gate, Wentworth, Silverstone, Welford Road and a number of festivals.
“I am thrilled to be joining SwipeStation and look forward to building on the company’s exceptional success.” commented Barnett.
“I am confident that with my twenty years of experience in the Hospitality industry, I will be able to support even more stadiums and other mass gatherings to reopen safely and profitably.”
As Client Services Director, Barnett’s role will include the overseeing of the company’s expanding client portfolio as stadiums and venues reopen their gates to fans.
He added: “I first encountered SwipeStation while at Ashton Gate Stadium in Bristol. I was immediately impressed by how quickly fans were being served – especially at half time. I introduced the service at Kingsholm (Gloucester) a few weeks later and revenue increased by 13% across the whole season. The rest is history!”
