TORONTO, June 29, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SelectCore Ltd. (“SelectCore” or the “Company”) (TSXV:SCG).

Pursuant to the Definitive JV signed between First Global Data and SelectCore and the subsequent formation of FintechUnion, we are pleased to confirm the appointment of David Mackereth to the position of General Manager.

David's role will encompass all aspects of business development as it relates to various forms of FINTECH such as a prepaid card and a mobile wallet that enables a full spectrum of payments in addition to both domestic and cross border remittances.

Revenues and associated expenses will be shared between the two companies and initiated business will be managed from origination to deployment.

Mr. Mackereth brings extensive sales and marketing experience to FintechUnion. As a leading marketing executive for over 25 years, he has excelled in the ability to understand client needs and build strong relationships. David has been a CA for 45 years and has been owner, consultant, and director in various entities ranging from Prepaid long distance, Prepaid wireless, and Prepaid cards.

Very particular and specific skillsets were required and David checked all the boxes. We are going after targeted opportunities that will provide accelerated pathways to revenue generation."
