Citizen appoints Sucharov as chief technology officer

| By Robert Fletcher
Payment services provider Citizen has appointed Toby Sucharov, formerly of Playtech, as its new chief technology officer.

In his new role, Sucharov will oversee the introduction and optimisation of Citizen’s account-to-account payment solution with businesses.

Sucharov joins having most recently served as head of UK innovation and technical revenue assurance for Sentinel at Playtech. He also spent time as head of games platform at GPAS.

Prior to this, Sucharov founded and ran Corosin Ltd and also worked as an IT consultant.

In addition, he spent over five years with Erudine, which delivers operational solutions to the finance sector.

“Citizen has a very solid product that offers huge benefits to many industries,” Sucharov said. “I’m excited to help it through the accelerator phase of its growth. It is a company that is poised to cross the chasm.

“Coming from an igaming background, from the moment I saw the technology of Citizen’s payment solution I understood its potential.”

The appointment follows a number of recent senior hires at Citizen, including Sarah Ahle as head of compliance. 

Citizen co-founder and chief executive James Neville said: “As Citizen gears up for more growth as we enter the second half of 2023, it is vital that we have the best leadership team in place to support and drive the business forward.

“Toby brings a great wealth of experience from the igaming sector and in scaling-up technology solutions. We look forward to working with him on our mission to simplify the way we pay by leveraging innovations in alternative payment methods.”
