MasterCard has expanded its presence in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region by opening its new office in Amman, Jordan.
The office, which is situated in the King Hussein Business Park in Amman, will also serve as MasterCard’s Levant headquarter dedicated to its operations in Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq and Palestine.
The company said that the opening of the office is aimed at expanding relationships with local partners and industry stakeholders including banks, telcos and governments.
MasterCard division president of MENA Khalid Elgibali said: “Opening an office in Amman, which is one of the main commercial and financial centers in the region, will allow MasterCard to more efficiently serve our partners in this region and capitalize on the accelerating market opportunity.
“The new office further expands our footprint in the region, and will serve as a strategic nerve center from which to launch and coordinate our efforts aimed at enhancing the payments ecosystem in Jordan and Levant and promoting digital transformation and financial inclusion in the region.”
MasterCard general manager of Saudi Arabia and Levant Cluster Basel Eltell said: “The new office will bring MasterCard closer to its banking partners, merchants and consumers in Jordan and consolidate our reputation as a customer-centric company that is always looking for ways to engage with its target audiences more meaningfully.
