Clearhaus Opens Office in London, Appoints Paul Barclay as Commercial Director
London & Aarhus - European merchant acquirer and payment institution, Clearhaus, today announced the opening of its new office in London. Headed by online payments expert Paul Barclay, Clearhaus’ new London operations will aim to help grow customer acquisition and sales across Europe.
Having grown its customer base to over 7,500 online stores across Europe in just 3 years, Clearhaus has now set its sights on expansion. The fast-growing Danish based online payments firm has high expectations for its new London team.
“The UK, especially London, is known for being tech-forward. It’s at the heart of the European payments industry, so it gives us the perfect opportunity to grow our business not just in the UK, but across Europe,” says CEO Claus Methmann Christensen.
Paul Barclay will lead Clearhaus’ commercial and sales support team from the London office. Paul is best known for his key role in growing WorldPay’s operations, and for his leadership positions at Paysafe Group, Skrill, Barclaycard, RBS, and Barclays Bank.
Paul brings a wealth of experience to Clearhaus and believes that the company is poised for success. “The European market has endless opportunities. With an excellent business model like Clearhaus’, with their best in class technology and customer focused service, they will be able to exploit these opportunities. I am pleased to help them grow and I am proud to represent them.”
Strategic partnerships have been a key driver in Clearhaus’ European success story - one which the company hopes to grow with its new UK office. “Our London-based team will not only onboard new merchants but also focus on landing new partner relations,“ adds Claus Methmann Christensen.
