“This has been a transformational year for the company,” said Romain Mazeries, CEO.
“Our strong growth is proof that our strategy and product excellence is resonating with platforms and market needs. A strategy that Advent International has adopted and accelerated to become a global leader in the payments industry.
“Under Advent’s ownership, we have increased our C-suite experience and made our first acquisition, which has put us on a path to great success. As we look to 2023, I am very excited about our ability global to enable platforms to build and scale the payment system they need with expertly selected technology to overcome the ever-changing market landscape.”
Launched in 2013, MangoPay serves over 2,500 platforms and marketplaces.
