Mobile payment supplier Passport announced the hiring of Meredith Cage and Duncan Mapes, as VP, product, and VP, engineering, respectively.
The recruitment efforts are a part of Passport’s initiatives to hire at least 50 employees this year since raising the $43 million Series C investment from Bain Capital Ventures in December. At that time, the company began aggressively seeking the best talent to meet the needs of clients, expand its global reach, and accelerate product growth and innovation. Thus far, the company has added more than 20 team members.
Most recently, Cage served as the sr. VP, product strategy and analytics, at PeraHealth. After earning her MBA from Harvard Business School, Meredith joined Johnson & Johnson where she led global product and marketing initiatives to commercialize innovative technology. Her earlier roles include a wide range of operational, consulting, and financial positions at KPMG and BearingPoint.
Duncan comes onboard from Bank of America, where he worked as the platforms and development operations sr. technology manager. Duncan led the development and operationalization of a custom enterprise delivery platform. He also spearheaded the efforts that redefined the processes and automation for one of the top most trafficked websites in America.
Passport currently has more than 100 employees and has been named one of the fastest growing companies in Charlotte, N.C., by the Charlotte Business Journal since 2016. The company is now hiring for product managers, product designers, software engineers and many more positions.
