Travelex, a leading provider of international payments and foreign exchange solutions, announced today that it is expanding its presence into Western Canada with the opening of its Vancouver office.
The new Vancouver location will serve as a foothold for Travelex across the Western Canadian market. With this expanded presence, Travelex is better positioned to deliver high touch service and expertise to its growing North American clientele and position the company for continued growth.
"We are making a long-term investment in developing our Canadian footprint," said Roy Farah, General Manager of Travelex Global Business Payments in Canada. "The Vancouver location is an important step in our business growth. With an on-the-ground, local presence in Toronto, Montreal and now Vancouver, we are able to better service our existing clients and look forward to forming new client relationships in the region."
In support of its vigorous Canadian expansion, Travelex has increased its staffing levels by more than 40 percent and will aggressively hire across the country, continuing to add to the workforce in the next year. In addition to on-the-ground support, Travelex will be continuing to launch innovative products and services to help support Canadian-based companies or those who do business in the region.
Travelex has done business in Canada for over 25 years and expects to open additional offices in the years to come.
The Vancouver office is open for business and fully operational. The office is located at 1030 West Georgia Street, Suite 1318 in Vancouver, British Columbia V6E 2Y3.
