Directorate Changes and change of Chief Executive Officer

 

MoneySwap (AIM: SWAP), the provider of payment solutions to online and point of sale merchants licenced for UnionPay in the UK and the provider for UnionPay MoneyExpress service enabling overseas persons to send funds directly to UnionPay cardholders in China, is pleased to announce the following changes to its Board of Directors.

 

Appointment of Executive Director

Ms. Yu Shu Fen (‘Sunny Yu’) has been appointed to the Board as Executive Director, Business Development, with immediate effect. Sunny Yu, a qualified accountant, has nearly thirty years’ experience at a senior level in the capital markets and wealth management industry. Prior to joining MoneySwap, she was a fund manager of PacRise Investment Management Pte. Limited, following several years as a wealth management consultant at Auspicium Capital Pte. Ltd. Ms Yu co-founded Vision Investment Management in 2000. Her role with MoneySwap will focus on identifying and delivering new corporate and institutional relationships in Asia, with a view to increasing transaction volumes across the MoneySwap platforms.

 

Change to Chief Executive Officer

Alongside the appointment of Sunny Yu, the Board has reviewed the best way to allocate management resources across the key geographic areas. As a result of this review, the following changes have been agreed with immediate effect:

 

Kung Min Lin, currently Chairman of the Company, will assume the role of Chief Executive Officer with immediate effect. Richard Proksa will continue his role at the Company as a Director and Chief Executive of Europe, Middle East and Africa (“EMEA”) and the Americas. Richard’s primary focus going forward will be the development of the business in EMEA and the Americas as these territories represent the largest total cross-border remittance transactions into PRC.

 

Kung Min Lin commented:

“I am delighted to welcome Sunny onto the Board.  Her strong background in capital markets and solid network of contacts will be highly valuable as we look to expand MoneySwap’s reach.

 

“It is now time to add senior executive capacity to the Company. Sunny’s appointment and my assumption of an Executive role will provide these additional resources. Given all our relative backgrounds and experience, it is sensible that going forward Richard will now be able to focus on the key territories in EMEA and the Americas.”
