MoneyGram International's Management Discusses Appointment Of Alex Holmes As Chief Financial Officer Conference Call (Transcript)

With that, I’ll turn the call over to Pam.

Pamela H. Patsley

Thanks, Eric. Good morning and thanks everyone for joining us. Today we announced two senior level appointments and I wanted to take a few minutes to discuss this news with you. First, as I am sure you’ve heard by now Dutcher on the call, we have announced that Alex Holmes has been named Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the company effective immediately. Alex succeeds Jim Shields who served as MoneyGram's EVP and CFO since July 2010. Jim will remain with the company through May 15, 2012 in the event anything is needed to ensure a smooth transition. We expect this transition though to be seamless.

Jim’s contributions to MoneyGram’s reorganization and restructure, which began shortly after he arrived almost two years ago, have been widely important to MoneyGram’s turn around. We appreciate this and we wish Jim well and all the best in his future endeavors.

Many of you already know Alex. He has been with MoneyGram since 2009 and he has led our Corporate Strategy and Investor Relations department. Alex has extensive and detailed knowledge of the industry, MoneyGram’s business operations, our partnership activities and growth objectives. Now he is responsible for all finance related functions and the continued close collaboration with our business leaders and the development of MoneyGram's operational and strategic initiative.

With me and the support of Eric Dutcher, Alex will also continue to develop and expand MoneyGram’s involvement with the investor community, a role in which many of you already know him and a role typically with the CFO. Alex has been central to MoneyGram’s transformation over the last several years and we view his appointment as an important step in reinforcing the strength of MoneyGram’s finance department and leadership. Alex is with me on this call and he will be available to help answer your questions after a few remarks.
