Amanda Nunn joins Money Mover

Posted on the 11th November 2015

Amanda Nunn moves from the CBI to join Cambridge-based financial technology business, Money Mover, to run its Partnerships Programme.  Amanda will be working with professional services companies, industry groups and other introducers helping their SME clients optimise their international payments and transfers.Cambridge, UK - 4th November 2015 - Money Mover, the online currency exchange and international payments service dedicated to SMEs, today announced that it has appointed Amanda Nunn as Head of Partnerships. Amanda will be responsible for developing Money Mover’s partner network, particularly across professional services organisations. She joins from the CBI where she was responsible for supporting and promoting the needs of the CBI’s membership including Small to Medium sized Enterprises (SME).

Amanda has also worked for international trade and business support organisation East of England International, where she helped overseas businesses enter the UK market, and has also held roles at Enterprising Women as Membership Development Manager, Pinsent Masons and The Royal Household.

"FinTech is an attractive sector and seems to be ahead of the curve in meeting the demands of customers and clients, rather than trying to keep pace,” said Amanda Nunn, Head of Partnerships, Money Mover. “My time at the CBI has given me a useful overview of SMEs working in a range of sectors. It’s clear that SMEs have a specific pain point around international payments and money transfer. Money Mover addresses that pain in an open, affordable and transparent way.”

Amanda’s role at Money Mover will be to expand the reach and depth of its network of partners among professional services companies, enabling Money Mover to provide fair and transparent international payments and currency exchange to a broader pool of SMEs.

According to the 2015 International Trade Survey from the British Chamber of Commerce, 68% of SMEs expect to increase their dependence on exporting in the next five years and 34% have had to expand their facilities to cope with increased international demand. Yet according to the Competition and Markets Authority only 13% of SMEs trust their bank to act in their best interests and only 25% feel supported by their bank. Amanda will bring her in-depth knowledge of the SME space, developed at the CBI, to help small businesses in their efforts to grow internationally.

Hamish Anderson, CEO, Money Mover commented, “Amanda’s hire is a major coup. She is incredibly well connected and her experience working with small businesses, understanding their issues and helping solve them is invaluable to Money Mover. She has a clear desire to promote the interests of SMEs and actively assist in their growth. At Money Mover, she can achieve this by providing the transparency and fairness that is absent in existing currency exchange and international payment services.”
