Wirex announced that Harold Montgomery has joined the company as Managing Director of Wirex USA.
Founded in 2014, Wirex is a leading mobile payments platform that allows customers to buy, store, exchange or spend digital and traditional currencies. Having recently achieved 3 million customers across 130 countries around the world, and reaching profitability, today it announced its ambitious plans to expand into the US market later this year.
“Harold brings over 20 years’ experience to Wirex USA – we are really excited to have him leading our US launch,” said Wirex’s CEO and co-founder, Pavel Matveev. “He has led six high-growth payment companies worldwide, which makes him a perfect fit as the Managing Director of Wirex USA.”
Harold Montgomery went on to demonstrate his enthusiasm in leading Wirex’s expansion of their next-generation product to the US. “Wirex has already allowed 3 million users across the world to experience a world where all fiat and crypto currencies are equal, and customers in the US will find that same ease of use available later this year. Wirex has already had considerable interest from those in the region, and we expect a strong launch in the US.”
Matveev added: “Wirex has been at the forefront of innovation since its inception. It is the first company to provide users with a debit card tied to their crypto and fiat accounts, allowing them to spend crypto currencies in the real world, anywhere Visa is accepted. I am confident that Harold will be a key player in our growth as we expand into the US market.”
