"We're changing our structure to reflect the new reality and pace of Internet-based commerce and its growing influence on banking," said Carl Pascarella, CEO of Visa USA, in a statement. Michael Beindorff, formerly Visa USA's exec VP-marketing, will serve as eVisa's president. Visa products already account for 52% of all U.S. online purchasing volume.
