Leading a team of over 60 engineers, one of Savoy’s main goals will be to expand TransferGo’s portfolio to ensure that customers arriving in a new country gets the same benefits as non-migrants.
“I can’t think of a more exciting time to join TransferGo,” said Savoy. “The culture of innovation and passion for providing users with a fantastic experience is something I have deep affinity with.
“I’m looking forward to guiding an incredibly talented engineering and product team to even higher heights as we enter this new phase of growth.”

The new CTO will bring over 25 years’ product and technology experience to TransferGo, having previously held senior positions at Paddy Power and Lastminute.com, and led large scale teams across the UK, Europe and South America.
Daumantas Dvilinskas, CEO of TransferGo, commented: “Edgardo is a great example of the type of individual we look to hire – someone who understands our ethos and the relentless focus we place on improving the lives of our customers.
“I’ve no doubt that with his drive, leadership and ability to solve complex customer experience challenges through technology innovation, we will exceed expectations and will continue our assault on being the fastest, most reliable, remittance company not just in Europe, but globally.”
The new hire comes following a recent investment of $10 million, which will go towards expanding TransferGo’s global footprint and continuing to launch new services.
