Singapore-based mobile payment startup GoSwiff today announced the appointment of Mark Patrick as its new CEO, replacing Simone Ranucci Brandimarte, who has stepped down after two years in the role.

According to an official statement, in his new role Patrick will focus on developing and launching “new and unique” payment solutions and services, leveraging the “latest advancements in mobile technologies”.
