Bob Woodbury appointed COO at Koin

November 7, 2023

Woodbury helped to deliver the first mobile transactions in an Amercian debit network.

The digitial payments company, Koin, has announced that Bob Woodbury has been appointed as the company’s new COO. 

Woodbury brings extensive experience within the industry to this role, including in long-term planning, payments innovation and P&L initiatives. He has worked at FIS Global, leading the network and security division, and served as SVP and General Manager at NYCE Payments Newtwork. 

He also has many accomplishments in the industry, such as delivering the first mobile transactions in an Amercian debit network in 2009, partnering with e-retail companies to help facilitate domestic networks’ first ecommerce transactions and managing the deployment of a large real-time loyalty redemption network in the US. 

Koin President, Gary Larkin, gave his thoughts on the appointment of Woodbury, “Just like Koin, Bob is a payment solutions visionary, and brings a wealth of experience to our company. As our new chief operating officer, he’ll help us continue strengthening our payments network, and introduce more operators around the country to our innovative technology.” 

Within this role, the new COO will be tasked to “continue driving excellent financial results, encouraging innovations in the company’s proprietary technology and leading a dedicated team toward the unifying goal of introducing the technology to more markets and partners around the country.” 

This marks another milestone for Koin this year, having partnered with Marker Trax to bring about a cashless solutions app for Table Trac and its clients.
