Ivana Tranchini, Country Manager for Cambodia said: “I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to lead our operations in Cambodia. I look forward to working closely with our clients, fintechs and the regulator to expand the usage and acceptance of digital payments in the country. Importantly, I want to make sure our work benefits individuals, businesses and communities so we can uplift everyone, everywhere across Cambodia.”

The Cambodian payments ecosystem has been on an immense digitisation journey over the past few years.

I am confident Ivana will do a great job leading our Cambodia team and supporting our clients to grow the expansion of commerce across the country.”
