Markus Naumer is a Manager in the Payments Strategy practice and joined Accenture via the acquisition of First Annapolis Consulting, a former boutique consulting company solely dedicated to payments.
Markus breathes payments since graduating from the University of Economics in Vienna with an award-winning master thesis. He has gained more than ten years of experience from online payments to traditional POS business in different European countries. Before working in consulting, he managed already existing products but also had the opportunity to get his hands dirty and set products from the ground up – including the regulatory framework and tech stack. Additionally, he has held guest lectures on mobile payments.
Typical clients Markus works with are spread across Europe and situated along the entire payments value chain: from issuers to acquirers, schemes to processors, multi-national bank to fintech startup.
Additionally, he has worked with private equity clients in M&A transactions on buy- and sell-side commercial due diligence projects.
Beyond general payments knowledge, Markus specializes in innovative payments, mobile payments and new technology in general. He is an early adopter of new payment technology and payment methods by his colleagues.
