Visa has announced that Bill Gajda, currently Chief Commercial Officer at the GSMA, will join Visa as head of mobile. Visa said that Gajda’s position "is designed to further advance Visa’s mobile strategy, working in collaboration with the wireless and financial services industries to bring mobile payments and related services to consumers around the globe."

Gajda comes to Visa with nearly 15 years experience in the wireless industry, including seven years with the GSMA, the organization which represents the interests of the worldwide mobile communications industry.
