Ebury, the fast-growing fintech company that enables businesses and NGOs to operate and grow internationally, is pleased to announce the appointment of Beverley Traynor as Head of Business Development, Charities.
Beverley joins the team with a wealth of insight into the charitable sector, having spent the last seven years at the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF). Most recently as Senior Business Development Manager, Beverley worked with a wide variety of charities to helping them manage, attract and save funds through various financial and fundraising solutions.
This new position within Ebury signals an important strategic step for the Company as it continues to grow and expand its Charity proposition. Beverley will lead Ebury’s global charity offering from the London office, bringing invaluable knowledge and experience to the role.
In addition to the responsibilities of this new role, Beverley will also be leading Ebury’s own in-house CSR activities. She will be exploring various options with the aim of consolidating the Company’s charitable endeavours.
“I am delighted to be joining such a prestigious firm,” said Beverley Traynor, commenting on her appointment. “I believe Ebury can add significant value to the third sector and I wouldn’t have made this move if I didn’t have that conviction.
“Having worked in the charitable sector for many years I understand the struggles charities face, particularly in this difficult economic climate. I myself support an overseas charity so these issues are close to my own heart. Streamlining and reducing the costs to charities enables more money to be delivered on the ground to where it is needed most.
“Many charities do not have a clear and proven strategy in place to give best value in their currency exchange. This leaves them exposed to rate volatility especially when working within emerging markets, which can be difficult to navigate and prone to sudden change. Ebury is in a prime position to help these charities and I’m excited to be leading a team that has so much to offer the sector I care so strongly about.”
