The MRC is Expanding to the APAC Region

The MRC is Expanding to the APAC Region

The global community of Merchant Risk Council (MRC) has announced that it is expanding into the Asia Pacific region. This expansion means that the MRC is appointing an APAC Advisory Board. This is a key move for the Advisory Board as it plans to grow globally.

The MRC was established in 2000 when the e-commerce segment was just starting out. The aim of this Non-Profit Organization is to fight against online fraud. MRC is an unbiased global community providing a platform for eCommerce fraud and payments professionals to come together and share information.

MRC is headquartered in Seattle, Washington but allows membership from all over the world. Recently, the MRC has appointed 16 Advisors to the APAC Advisory Board, who will work closely with MRC VP of Global Expansion and Member Advocacy Úna Dillon and with support from MRC Regional Co-Leaders Tom Donlea and Vishal Singhvi, based in Singapore.

Speaking about today's announcement, MRC CEO Julie Fergerson stated: "We are enormously excited to launch our APAC Advisory Board and welcome all our new board members. Each Advisor brings to the Board, a wealth of knowledge in the payments industry and provides a unique perspective and acumen. We very much look forward to their expertise and support as we drive the MRC Community in the region."
