BOGOTÁ, Colombia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Western Union today announced the appointment of Priscila Nogueira as general manager for its Colombia business. Nogueira currently serves in the same capacity overseeing Western Union’s Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay businesses.
“Western Union has been extremely fortunate to have Priscila lead business operations for numerous countries across Latin America,” said Mauricio Garcia, Head of Western Union South America. “I know first-hand the impact she has made to date on our business growth across the region and the relationships with our agents and our customers. From helping expand our service offerings, to bringing a customer-first mindset to her leadership style, she has been a key driver to our success.”
Nogueira brings a strong track record of success expanding Western Union networks across Latin America over the last five years.
