TransferGo, one of the world’s fastest growing money transfer companies, today announced the appointment of Edgardo Savoy as its new Chief Technology Officer.
Based in London, Edgardo will be responsible for leading TransferGo’s team of more than 60 engineers and driving the company’s technology roadmap with a focus on customer experience. With his team, Edgardo will expand TransferGo’s customer offering to ensure anyone arriving in a new country has access to the same benefits as non-migrants.
Bringing over 25 years of product and technology experience to TransferGo, Edgardo has held senior positions at Paddy Power and Lastminute.com, and has led large scale global technology and product teams whilst working in South America, Europe and the UK.
Commenting on the appointment, Daumantas Dvilinskas, CEO and Co-Founder, TransferGo said: “Edgardo is a great example of the type of individual we look to hire - someone who understands our ethos and the relentless focus we place on improving the lives of our customers. I’ve no doubt that with his drive, leadership and ability to solve complex customer experience challenges through technology innovation, we will exceed expectations and will continue our assault on being the fastest, most reliable, remittance company not just in Europe, but globally.”
This announcement comes at a time of growth for TransferGo, with over 2 million users and follows a $10 million investment boost that will enable the business to expand its global footprint and continue to launch new services on its cross-border payments platform.
“I can’t think of a more exciting time to join TransferGo” said Edgardo. “The culture of innovation and passion for providing users with a fantastic experience is something I have deep affinity with. I’m looking forward to guiding an incredibly talented engineering and product team to even higher heights as we enter this new phase of growth”.
TransferGo is favoured by migrants working in the UK who send money home to their families but don’t want to deal with the bureaucracy and fees imposed by banks for processing payments in other countries and currencies.
Based in London, UK, TransferGo is the quickest, most reliable remittance company in Europe, rated ‘excellent’ on Trustpilot (4.8) and with an NPS score of 75, it has built a much-loved brand based on transparency, trust and user experience.
