WorldRemit, the global digital money transfer service, today announced the appointment of Spotify CFO Paul Vogel to its board of directors. At Spotify, Paul oversees the company's financial affairs including corporate development, FP&A and treasury. He began his career as an analyst at Morgan Stanley, and has since held senior finance positions at leading institutions across multiple industries, most recently Managing Director at Barclays.

"Paul's experience at blue-chip financial services institutions, combined with his tenure at Spotify where he built a world-class digital infrastructure that serves 320 million consumers in 92 markets globally, brings important new capabilities to our board", said Breon Corcoran, CEO at WorldRemit.
