Buckzy Payments, a provider of international money transfer services and a leading fintech firm in Canada, has confirmed that it has hired a new chief operating officer.

Buckzy said that it had brought Carlos Garcia on board to run this part of its services.

He will now move over to Buckzy to provide leadership as it focuses on growing strategically.

The company is aiming to become a world leader in instant online money transfers across borders. 

In a statement, a leading figure at Buckzy Payments said that the new appointment will see Garcia given a “highly strategic” role at the firm.

Abdul Naushad said that Garcia will be working hard on providing a top customer experience.

“With this position, Carlos holds a highly strategic role at Buckzy and will be responsible for Buckzy’s payments and banking operations with a focus on delivering a world-class customer experience,” he explained.

“Carlos will drive operational strategy and planning, including treasury/FX systems and procedures so that the company can successfully achieve its end-to-end execution and oversight,” he said.

“Along with building and strengthening Buckzy’s global banking network, he will be responsible for establishing licensing to drive global expansion and implementing other strategic initiatives in close collaboration with Buckzy’s executive team,” he said.
