Zazoo is an aggregation of innovative technology companies and a leading provider of payment solutions and transaction processing services.

Zazoo’s patented technologies have enabled mobile payment solutions for the likes of Uber South Africa, World Remit, Microsoft, Funifi in the UK, BitX and Oxigen Wallet in India.

“As we continue to expand Zazoo’s offerings into new markets, it is important for us to maintain dedicated focus in each territory and as such I am delighted to announce the appointment of Tamara to head up our South African business,” says Philip Belamant, MD of Zazoo.

Tamara d’Onofrio entered the South African banking industry in 2004, in the midst of new legislation imposed on the banks by the Financial Intelligence Centre. It was here that she gained her initial experience and insights into the regulatory environment that governs financial institutions, and the relevance of the compliance function within the financial services industry.

Since then, she has spent over ten years within the client management functions of two major South African banks, most recently heading up the transactional banking sales function within Nedbank’s Corporate and Investment Banking.
