SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The OzForex Group, one of the world’s leading foreign exchange companies, today announced the appointment of Prince Ghuman to the dual roles of Director of Marketing, North America and Global Director of Enterprise Development. He’s based in the company’s San Francisco office.
Ghuman’s role is focused on helping solidify the firm’s brands – USForex and CanadianForex – as North America’s dominant foreign exchange players. In his global role, he’s developing the OzForex Group into a leading fintech enterprise providing borderless payments solutions for corporations and financial institutions.
“Ghuman is an agile-minded businessman,” said Jeff Parker, Chief Enterprise Officer at OzForex Group. “He’s a professional that really gets it. His entrepreneurial pedigree means he uses data to quickly hypothesize, test, and adapt at scale.”
“As a first-generation Indian-American who’s resided in Europe and Asia and speaks five languages, Prince has a special appreciation for the international nature of the money transfer business. We’re lucky to have him on our team and look forward to the many contributions I know he’ll make,” added Maria Loyez, Chief Marketing Officer at OzForex Group.
Prior to joining the OzForex Group, Ghuman served as Chief Marketing Officer for Zip Zap Inc., a technology platform for global payments and remittances. While there, he developed and marketed a mobile SaaS payment solution built on the blockchain for international money transfer companies. He also marketed one of the first ecommerce platforms to buy, sell and trade cryptocurrencies, and built a mobile app for peer to peer international payments, also built on the blockchain.
Previously, he served as the head of marketing at Buy Auto Parts, helping grow the company from a startup to more than 150 employees. He’s credited with increasing revenue 30% year over year for five consecutive years, earning a place on Inc. magazine’s fastest-growing companies list for five years.
“I’ve known of the OzForex Group for many years due to their stellar reputation in Europe and the APAC. I was also impressed when I learned how many money transfer businesses are powered by OzForex,” Ghuman said. “This is a pivotal time for OzForex - the upcoming launch of a new global brand, the sharp focus on B2B, and the emphasis on USA in the growth strategy. When the endeavor to lead their North American marketing efforts was presented to me, I back flipped at the opportunity. We’re global to the core, our employees represent 47 nations, and our foreign exchange operations touch 200 countries. I look forward to bringing my experience to bear on OzForex’s growth.”
