Money transfer and payment services provider MoneyGram announced earlier this week that the company has added two new payments experts—Yogesh Sangle and Andrew Typrin—to focus on strategic growth in emerging markets and self-service channels.
“I’m very pleased to announce the addition of Yogesh and Andrew to our leadership team,” MoneyGram Chairman and CEO Pamela Patsley said in a press release. “Each will be integral to pursuing our company wide strategy of growing both our core cash-to-cash business in emerging markets and expanding our self-service channels, including online, mobile, account deposit and kiosks. 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.”
Sangle, who joins MoneyGram from PayPal’s Asia Pacific division, has more than 15 years of experience in banking and payments solutions, as well as online payments, sales and product management and digital marketing.
Typrin recently supported Amazon’s global expansion and helped lead strategy development and execution for payments acceptance. He will lead MoneyGram Online’s expansion.
“With the addition of Yogesh and Andrew, we are making significant strides toward innovative, customer-focused solutions that create long-term shareholder value,” Patsley said.
