Pangea Money Transfer Welcomes Andrei Utkin as Chief Marketing Officer

Share Article

Seasoned financial services marketing executive will focus on expanding Pangea’s customer base and supporting new product and partnership launches.

Mr. Utkin's appointment comes at a time when Pangea is making headlines with several new product and partnership announcements, such as the launch of International Bill Pay, and Quikz, a co-branded remittance product co-developed with Philippines-based financial leader Cebuana Lhuillier.

Pangea Money Transfer, the global remittance and underbanked financial services leader, has appointed Andrei Utkin as Chief Marketing Officer, further expanding its team of executives with deep digital experience.

An alumnus of financial services and digital technology leaders such as McKinsey, Capital One, Neustar, and Insureon, Utkin will leverage his experience to bolster Pangea's marketing strength and fuel its customer growth.

"Pangea has built a great set of products, allowing our customers to make affordable and seamless international transactions, and our partners to easily add remittances to their portfolio of product offerings," said Utkin. "It's now time to make big moves in the marketing space, using the latest digital technologies to continue building our brand and growing our customer base. I am excited to leverage my digital marketing skills to help propel the firm to the next level."

Mr. Utkin brings over 20 years of digital marketing experience to Pangea. He started his U.S. career at McKinsey and Company where he advised global financial services firms on strategy, mergers and acquisitions, and performance improvement. In 2003 he joined Capital One—just around the time when the company launched its digital transformation—and helped see through its emergence as one of the nation's top online marketing firms over the following decade. After a successful run in large organizations, Utkin spent the last four years at startup-sized companies in Chicago, focusing on developing brand strategy, building strong teams, and applying deep analytics to profitably scale direct response marketing. He holds two master's degrees: an M.S. in Economics from the Lomonosov Moscow State University, and an MBA from NYU's Stern School of business.

"Andrei's addition to the team reaffirms our focus on bringing top talent to Pangea, at all levels,'' said Pangea CEO Nishu Thukral. "His experience in financial services marketing and data-driven strategy will play a crucial role in further establishing Pangea as the leading provider of international financial solutions."

Mr. Utkin's appointment comes at a time when Pangea is making headlines with several new product and partnership announcements, such as the launch of International Bill Pay, and Quikz, a co-branded remittance product co-developed with Philippines-based financial leader Cebuana Lhuillier.
