Travelex has today appointed John Rayment as Global Business Development Director, based at the global Headquarters in London. Reporting to Steve O’Donovan, Chief Commercial Officer, Rayment will be responsible for the growth and development of Travelex’s Currency Solutions business.
In this newly created role, his remit will include Travelex’s relationships with banks, post offices, supermarkets, travel agencies and other retailers of foreign currency products.

His experience has given him an in-depth understanding of our customers’ needs, Travelex technologies, and the ability to strategically align the two.”
