VANCOUVER, CANADA, Logan Resources Ltd. (TSXV: LGR) (“Logan” or the “Company”) and Voleo Inc. (“Voleo”), are pleased to announce that Nicky Senyard has joined Voleo’s Board of Directors. The appointment became effective earlier this month and expands the Voleo Board to five members.

Ms. Senyard has over 15 years of executive experience in the digital marketing B2B space. In 2002, Nicky founded and operated a successful global marketing technology business, Income Access. Under Senyard’s leadership as CEO, the business achieved exponential organic growth, attracting a US$30 million business acquisition in 2016 by leading global payments provider, Paysafe Group.
Since the 2016 transaction, Ms. Senyard founded KewPac Group – a Vancouver-based boutique firm that seeks strategic investment opportunities in the marketing technology and B2B space.
“As a fintech social investing platform and engine, Voleo has the potential for wide reaching impact as a white label solution for established financial institutions wanting to connect with their customers,” stated Thomas Beattie, Voleo’s CEO.
“Ms. Senyard understands Voleo’s market opportunities and competitive landscape, and her depth of knowledge in marketing technology and developing B2B strategies within niche industries will have a positive impact on the growth of Voleo. Her vast experience will be invaluable as we work together to bring Voleo to the public markets this year,” added Mr. Beattie.
“As a respected and accomplished executive in the B2B technology sector, we are privileged to welcome Ms. Senyard as Voleo’s first Independent Director,” commented Mr. Mark Morabito, Voleo’s Executive Chairman. “We are confident that Ms. Senyard will strengthen Voleo’s Board and senior management and propel us forward in our expansion and growth plans to benefit our current shareholders and stakeholders,” added Mr. Morabito.
Ms. Senyard commented, “I see a wide range of opportunities for Voleo and am excited about my role as Voleo’s newest board member.
Voleo has the core technology elements to be a market-leader, and this, combined with its value focus on contribution, growth and collaboration, the business will provide the strategic element financial institutions are looking for.
I have developed a deep appreciation for the viability of Voleo’s platform as a tool for both engagement and retention. I will work closely with members of Voleo’s management team to continue to deliver on Voleo’s strategic growth plan,” added Ms. Senyard.
Voleo had a strong start to the new year, by securing a B2B white-label partnership with the largest financial institution in Finland – OP Financial Group, in November 2018, through the OP Wealthtech Partnership Program.
