Two senior hires have been made at international money transfer firm WorldRemit.

The two new members of staff will work in the product and marketing sides of the business at an executive level and will work directly for the firm’s Chief Executive Officer Breon Corcoran.

The first new hire is Ian Cafferky, who has previously worked for big names such as O2.

At O2, he was responsible for brand and also for “marcomms”, which is a term referring to both marketing and communications.

He was responsible for helping O2 get to a stage where it won the Marketing Society UK Brand of the Year in 2015.

For WorldRemit, he will be responsible for marketing campaigns involving customer relationship management.

The other new hire is Stephen Lovell, who previously worked at micro insurance and health services firm MILVIK BIMA.

There, he worked on the product side and was also responsible for technology development.

Over at WorldRemit, he will work on a programme of implementing various new innovations.

Both of the new members of staff said that they were looking forward to getting involved.

Ian Cafferky said that he would “be hitting the ground running” and that he already had some ideas in place.

“I am excited by the potential of the brand given its roots in migrant remittances and the management’s ambitious growth”, he said.

“I’ll be hitting the ground running with plans of my own to really bring our story and what we stand for to our customers and the market, increasing our customer base and market reach even further”, he added.

Stephen Lovell focused on the company’s decision to respond to global trends.

“I am excited to be joining WorldRemit, the company’s purpose of supporting people around the world to manage their money more easily is a crucial one with today’s increasingly global workforce”, he said.

WorldRemit is a major company in the remittances space.

It operates in hundreds of countries, and in total it is believed to work in over 6,000 payments corridors.

With WorldRemit making such high-level hires as these, it’s clear that this is a company on the rise.

It comes after the firm secured $175m in Series D funding last year, and clearly it is hoping to build on that by making some excellent hires.

With the CEO pointing out that “their expertise will help us innovate our service offerings and grow the business”, it’s clear that Cafferky and Lovell are considered excellent investments in the firm’s future.
