SAN DIEGO, Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Gil Hooper has been appointed to the Board of Directors of Global Payout, Inc. (OTC Pink: GOHE). Mr. Hooper, an international payments sales and marketing professional, brings with him an extensive resume including international banking, debit card issuing and processing, eWallet systems, cross border remittance and mobile payment applications. His diverse background makes him uniquely qualified to advise Global Payout during its next phase of growth. Mr. Hooper is currently the CEO of Boundless Payment Solutions, Inc. and the Managing Partner of 3G Consulting, both financial systems companies headquartered in San Diego but operating globally. He also is a co-founder and principal partner in a lending organization headquartered in Mexico City called Mi Adelanto and, through the 3G organization, an issuer of debit cards throughout Mexico. He has offices in San Diego, Mexico City and London.
During the early 90s, Mr. Hooper saw an opportunity evolving with a very large and underserved group of consumers in the U.S. and worked with the issuing banks and with Visa® and MasterCard® to develop and process one of the first prepaid debit card programs aimed at the under-banked and disenfranchised within the U.S. market. The prepaid debit card market has since evolved to become a global alternative banking source with millions of users around the world. Mr. Hooper currently advises many of today's leaders in the banking, debit card and the evolving mobile payments industries.
"I am pleased to become a director of Global Payout and look forward to assisting the team in executing its strategy of delivering international payment solutions to the organizations requiring local payment systems in all parts of the world. Global is well positioned to deliver complete payment solutions creating a lot of value for its clients and Global's stockholders," stated Mr. Hooper.
"Gil brings in-depth knowledge and valuable resources to the Board of Directors and Management Team," said Jim Hancock, CEO and Board Member of Global Payout, Inc. "Gil's strategic contacts in the international payment community allows Global Payout to offer more competitive payout solutions, resulting in larger companies that will produce consistent revenue streams."
