Cashless payment services firm USA Technologies (USAT) announced the appointment of Scott Stewart as chief accounting officer. Stewart will lead the company’s accounting operations, financial reporting, internal control processes, and financial systems.
Stewart joins USAT after 13 years with the Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), which operates global exchanges such as the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and clearing houses across the globe. During his time at ICE he served in various positions, most recently as assistant controller, where his responsibilities included managing and overseeing the production of external financial statements, implementation of new accounting standards, maintaining corporate controls, ensuring SOX compliance across all accounting processes, and working closely with the company’s board and audit committee.
Following ICE’s acquisition of NYSE, Stewart supervised the integration of NYSE’s accounting function into ICE’s accounting group, including the transition of employees; consolidation of job functions, roles, and responsibilities; and moving the NYSE accounting function from New York to Atlanta.
Stewart will be based at USAT’s Atlanta office and report to Chief Financial Officer Wayne Jackson. USAT’s current chief accounting officer, Glen Goold, will stay with the company to assist in the transition of his responsibilities.
