NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., June 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Cause Mobile Wallet, the charitable mobile wallet solution that creates sustainable funding for worthy causes, today announced the appointment of Eric Choi as president. Choi brings over 25 years of experience in the finance industry at firms such as Jeffries and Co. and McDonald Investments. Most recently, he was co-head of equities at CRT Capital. Choi is also the chairman of the board of directors at Cause Mobile Wallet and will continue to serve in that capacity.
As president, Choi will oversee marketing strategy, business development, products and services. Choi will also lead the launch of Cause Mobile Wallet’s newest payment capability, “Scan-the-Brand”.

The Cause Mobile Wallet app allows users to send and receive funds from anyone and make purchases using their smartphones. A percentage of every transaction is donated to the charity of their choice. Users can also set up crowdfunding campaigns with the Create a Campaign feature, which allows them to crowdfund contributions with just a click of a button.
“I’m excited and honored to lead our Cause Mobile team,” said Choi. “As a longstanding board member for the Cause organization, I’m looking forward to this new chapter as president and broadening the services and features of Cause Mobile Payments. We’ll continue to offer a secure, free mobile payment system for users while expanding our partnerships with merchants and charities.
