Fast growing Payair hires HR-director

Swedish Payair, a global industry leader within mobile commerce, is growing rapidly and employs Dan Åkhagen as HR-director. Åkhagen begins in January and will be responsible for both the recruitment of new staff and the development of existing employees.

Payair is a leader within the mobile shopping industry and its solution is widely used in both e-commerce and physical retail shops. The commercial launch of Payair´s solution was made in 2011.

”Payair is growing extremely quickly and has constantly need for new skills. In such a situation, it is very important to have a focus on HR-issues both in terms of recruitment and existing employees”, says Håkan Eriksson, Payair´s CEO.

Payair have therefore chosen to recruit Dan Åkhagen as HR-director. Åkhagen has extensive experience of HR-issues from both the public and private sectors, and most recently the listed game developer Starbreeze.

“I know that the competition for system developers is fierce. It will therefore be interesting to work in a fast growing company like Payair and the challenge of recruiting the new skills and preserve the human resources we have”, says Dan Åkhagen.
