Global cross border payments firm Flywire has announced that it has hired a senior figure to take on the role of both president and chief operating officer.

Rob Orgel, who previously worked at Apple for almost a decade, will be responsible for many areas of the business.

The position of president and COO has been recently created.

Orwell’s direct line will be Mike Massaro, who is the CEO of the company.

Orgel’s experience in the online money transfer industry is extensive.

While working for Apple, for example, he worked on the Apple Pay product which has been responsible for more than 10 billion transactions since it was first created.

Orgel has also worked at other payments-related firms, including m-Qube.

It is understood that Orgel will be responsible for a wide range of areas during his time at Flywire.

These are expected to include corporate strategy as well as business operations and finance.

In a statement, Orgel said that he found it “incredibly exciting” to be joining the firm – and that the existing team had already done a great job developing the firm.

“It’s an incredibly exciting time to be joining a company on the fast track like Flywire where every day and every decision matters”, he said.

“Mike and the rest of the team have created tremendous success and momentum and I’m looking forward to doing my part to help the company accelerate its growth and expand its impact in the payments ecosystem”, he added.

For Flywire, CEO Mike Massaro emphasised the fact that the firm is growing quickly.

“Flywire is no longer a startup and as we grow, we need to add not only leadership ability, but also demonstrated experience in scaling, developing and shaping an organization for the future”, he said.

“Rob brings all of that and more with a customer-first mindset from Apple that fits perfectly with our culture here. I’ve had the opportunity to work with him before and know that he’ll add tremendous value to the business and the organization as we write our next chapter”, he added.

Flywire is a major payments platform and runs billions of dollars’ worth of payments through its systems each year.

It aims to make the money transfer process more transparent for customers.

It offers its services specifically to the education, healthcare and business sectors.

In addition to its headquarters in the US city of Boston, it also works in London, Sydney, Tokyo and elsewhere.
