MEETING CUSTOMERS’ FINANCIAL NEEDS SINCE 1940
MoneyGram International can trace its roots back to 1940, with the founding of Minneapolis-based Travelers Express Co., Inc. Under parent company Viad Corp., Travelers Express quickly became one of the world’s largest processors of money orders and a key player in the electronic payments industry, with ties to big-name businesses including bus company Greyhound Corp. and soap maker The Dial Corp.
Today, under chairman and chief executive officer Pamela H. Patsley, MoneyGram is the second-largest money transfer company in the world and has $1.5 billion in annual revenues. We have a track record of targeted growth and continued market outperformance and are well-positioned in a nearly $600 billion – and growing – industry.
At the heart of MoneyGram is a mission to bring loved ones closer. Whether our customers are sending or receiving money through cash-to-cash transactions, a bank account, online, or through a mobile device, our services are connecting friends, family members and loved ones – no matter where they are in the world.
It’s a big responsibility, and it’s the reason we are committed to customer convenience. We work to form collaborative relationships with agents including international post offices, retailers, and virtual agents to bring our services closer to our customers. It’s why we are dedicated to innovation and are always searching for the best solutions.
MoneyGram’s work also extends beyond continual improvement and growth. Our efforts include comprehensive scam awareness programs aimed at preventing and stopping fraud, and compliance programs that work to prevent money laundering while also ensuring conformity with government rules and regulations. We are ultimately aiming to increase the security of our industry.
But while we work to use our products, knowledge and skills to shape the future of the funds transfer business for the better, our priority is always to stand by our motto, “MoneyGram. Bringing You CloserTM.”
