"I'm very pleased to announce the addition of Yogesh and Andrew to our leadership team.

Patsley, MoneyGram's chairman and CEO. "Yogesh has extensive experience in the payments industry in Asia Pacific and will help MoneyGram continue its strong growth in a rapidly developing region. Andrew is a global innovation expert in the payments industry, and his leadership in growing our online presence will help reach our goal of generating 15 to 20 percent of our revenue from self-service channels in 2017."
