Eran Feinstein retires as the CEO of DPO Group, to be replaced by Brendon Williamson

DPO Group (DPO) has announced the retirement of co-founder and CEO Eran Feinstein from the company. Eran will be replaced by Brendon Williamson, Network International’s Regional Managing Director for Acquiring in South Africa.

Last year, Feinstein, alongside co-founder Offer Gat, successfully managed DPO’s sale to Network International, a globally renowned enabler of digital commerce across the Middle East and Africa.

Brendon is the founder of Dotcom Solutions, a global fraud management consultancy, as well as Intercept Risk, a company offering global transaction fraud screening services. He has spent the last ten years of his career with DPO SA, where he fulfilled the roles of Chief Sales Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, and most recently Head of Commercial.

Eran Feinstein had this to say, “I am proud to have played my part in developing the next wave of African tech talent. It has been an incredible journey, from the two-man start-up in 2006 to the leading digital payments success story DPO is today. Having helped build the team that leads the company now, I know I couldn’t be leaving it in better hands.”

Brendon Williamson, Network’s Regional Managing Director for Acquiring in South Africa, said: “DPO would not be the company it is today without Eran’s drive and determination. Thanks to his tireless hard work, DPO made a series of smart acquisitions including what was then one of the largest acquisitions by a PSP in 2019 when it bought PayFast in South Africa. I have learned so much from him over the last six years of working together.”
