moneycorp growth leads to three senior hires

Published 

moneycorp, the foreign exchange and international payments specialist, has made three senior hires to support the expansion of its Global Payments division. Richard Braham joins as Senior Relationship Manager, Bill Wrest joins as Head of Innovation, and Kirsty Garner joins as Marketing and Innovation Manager.

Paving the way for further innovation in the division, the appointments come after a successful Q1 for moneycorp, which saw 49 per cent year on year growth for the company’s international payments business.

The new hires, all hailing from positions at Barclays Corporate, will play key roles in the company’s ambitious expansion plan for its already successful international payments offering.

Mark Horgan, CEO of Moneycorp, says: 

“This team is a game changer for moneycorp and part of our continued investment in people and technology. The team’s expertise will further strengthen our Global Payments division as we grow the business and reinforce moneycorp’s position as a leader in its field. Our international payments business is moneycorp’s fastest growing division, and we will continue to invest as the business goes from strength to strength, cementing its proposition to internationally trading businesses.”
