Leading mobile payments company WorldRemit has appointed seasoned digital executive Scott Eddington to lead the Asia Pacific business as it positions itself to help even more customers make secure, quick and affordable cross border payments.

Scott will be responsible for accelerating WorldRemits mobile payments service in Asia Pacific, which currently allows customers to send from Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Developments in Asia such as the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) envision free flow of labour and are likely to change the traditional migration and cross border payments flows over the next decade with more intra Asian migration. Scott will also be responsible for the development of WorldRemits send and receive network, helping deliver services into new geographies in a secure and convenient way.

Prior to joining WorldRemit, Scott was responsible for digital strategy at Commonwealth Bank of Australia. Scott has over ten years of international expertise in a variety of roles working for McKinsey and Company and Linklaters LLP based in London, Japan and Singapore.

I am pleased to welcome Scott to WorldRemit at this exciting time. Over the last ten years, WorldRemit has transformed the cross border payments industry by making money transfers as easy as sending a text. The digital insight Scott brings from his previous roles will help continue our journey delivering a mobile first service that is convenient, fast, secure and value for money, said Tamer El-Emary, Chief Commercial Officer at WorldRemit.
