A big thank you from the Kabayan Remit Team
After a challenging 2020, we at Kabayan Remit would like to thank you, our valued customers, for your unwavering support and for choosing our services. It means a lot that you entrust us with delivering your hard-earned money to your loved ones in the Philippines. Despite the difficulties we all encountered in 2020, we are delighted to have finished the year strong. We couldn’t have achieved this milestone without your continued support and trust.
We are thrilled to kickstart 2021 as we look forward to the big plans we have set for the year. Firstly, we are pleased to introduce two new Senior Executives who have recently joined our team.
Our new Chief Technology Officer, Alexander Sommer, will oversee and manage all the company’s technical aspects. Before joining Kabayan Remit, Alex supported start-up clients in various B2B and B2C sectors, many of which were in the FinTech sector. He has extensive experience in solving complex IT problems and executing digital marketing strategies that help companies systematically accelerate controlled and profitable growth.
Our new Commercial Director, Michael Wragg, will be leading the company’s commercial activities. Mike started his career in Barclays’ management training programme. Throughout his long stint, he worked in both the retail and business banking divisions of the company. Mike then joined Metro Bank when it was a start-up company in 2010. There, he headed the payments and cash management team and developed/promoted new products and services to the business banking customer segment.
Both Alex’s and Mike’s expertise and extensive specialised experience will be invaluable in our efforts to make Kabayan Remit more seamless and innovative for our customers.
On top of this, we are excited to announce that we will be expanding operations across Europe and North America. In line with our mission of helping our kababayan abroad to send money quickly and safely to their loved ones back home, this step will bring us closer to our goal of making remittances more convenient, affordable and accessible to every overseas Filipino.
