San Francisco, California – Hyperwallet Systems Inc. (“Hyperwallet”), a global leader in the payments industry, today announced Michael Ting has joined the company as Senior Vice President, Digital Markets. In this role, Ting will work alongside Hyperwallet’s senior management team to develop commercial and strategic partnerships with emerging growth companies in the digital marketplace sector. Ting will report to Peter Burridge, President & Chief Commercial Officer of Hyperwallet.
