NEW YORK, Feb. 08, 2023 – e.pop, a retail fintech with a mission to transform the payment ecosystem for merchants and consumers and eliminate paper receipt waste, today announces the appointment of Amber Skinner-Jozefson to the position of Chief Executive. Effective immediately, Skinner-Jozefson takes over from Co-Founder and Chairman Sunay Shah.
Founded in 2020 by Shah and Sunil Rajan, e.pop recently announced the successful closing of their second round of funding, surpassing $2.1 million in external capital that is being used to fuel expansion, hiring and enrichment of data aggregation, analytics and tools. Moving forward, Skinner-Jozefson will drive operational execution with a focus on acquisition and product development to empower retail businesses with an innovative view of customer purchasing trends and providing consumers with a smarter app to manage recent and new purchases.
Prior to joining e.pop in early 2022, Skinner-Jozefson was Chief Executive of a UK-based consumer credit and alternative credit scoring fintech. She has built her career leading marketing and growth teams, primarily in financial technology sectors.
“I am extremely proud to be steering e.pop into a new stage of growth, demonstrating traction in multiple geographic markets and driving a new wave of climate consciousness in payments and shopping analytics. Sunay, Sunil and the team have brought a compelling idea to life and built it into a real world offering with tremendous potential to open brand new opportunities for players up and down the retail chain. I’m honored and excited to deliver on this ambitious mandate and to take e.pop to the next level,” says Skinner-Jozefson.
Shah says “Having worked with Amber before, I am delighted to have her move e.pop forward. She has made a significant impact as advisor and leader to date and it’s clear her ability as an operator, CEO and background as a marketing executive is exactly the leadership we need as we enter the next chapter as a two-sided marketplace. With a strong team, recently launched products, growing customer base and community, we can collectively focus our efforts on extending our reach. Our team is now well positioned, giving me even greater confidence in our ability to execute on our vision. I am excited for our future as we transform retail and make a positive impact.”

The board is looking forward to a strong partnership with Amber in her new role.”
