Western Union and Societe Generale collaborate on roll-out of Money Transfer service Africa


Societe Generale International Retail Banking already offers Western Union services in more than 2,500 locations across 25 countries. The agreement is an extension of the two companies’ successful collaboration across Europe and Africa.

“We’re looking forward to combining our strengths in Asia Pacific and the Commonwealth of Independent States,” said Hikmet Ersek, CEO and President, Western Union. “Societe Generale and Western Union share a centuries-old heritage as well as global presence. This renewal, and more importantly, the extension of our relationship into more countries, builds on our past success and global infrastructure.”

“Renewing the global agreement with Western Union will allow us to expand our relationship to more markets. Therefore, we will better serve our clients with complete solutions, which is at the heart of our business” said Jean-Louis Mattei, Head of International Retail Banking at Societe Generale.

The relationship between Societe Generale and Western Union has grown rapidly since the first Western Union Money Transfer agreement was signed in 1998.
