Hi, we are CurrencyTransfer:

Stevan Litobac

CEO & Co-Founder

Stevan was previously part of two exciting start-ups right from their humble beginnings; CinemaParadiso.co.uk, the only remaining UK born & bred DVD rental service, and OneMove.com, one of the largest UK property portal websites at its time. When not playing with new technology, Stevan can be found watching Formula 1, cheering for Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo.

Paul Plewman

COO

Paul (also known as #FxPlew) democratises market updates with his daily videos, recorded on an airwheel while commuting to work. Away from the office, he’s a bit of an endorphin junkie, whether at the gym, pool or out on the bike. Squash night blocks out every Thursday and Steak Club is a quarterly dinner to explore some of London’s finer Steak restaurants.

Tom Radford

Onboarding Manager

Tom is the one you will talk to when opening a new account with us. Our (self-proclaimed) ‘Activations Samurai’ has successfully onboarded thousands of individuals and business clients since 2016. As an exiled Scot, he enjoys nothing more than complaining about the prices of London pints. It doesn’t stop him from going to nice pubs with local friends after work.

Nick Cornford-Jolly

Key Account Manager

Nick is our super-friendly relationship manager who lives for 5 star reviews. He will always make sure our clients are 100% satisfied with their international money transfers, no matter how unique their needs could be. On the weekends you’ll find him on a family day out, watching/playing football or relaxing with friends with a ‘Guinness game’ or two for good measure.

Nathan Perez

Payments Specialist

Nathan was one of our first team members on the corporate desk. Born in Paris, he grew up in Hong Kong. A global traveller, he chose to settle in Tel Aviv to be close to his family. He’s into playing chess and cycling. Although these days, he’s swapped all that for precious time with the little ones.

Nicolas Pocard

Payments Specialist

Nicolas has over 10 years of experience in the financial industry. Originally from Paris, he lived in New York and London before settling in Tel Aviv, where he started his family and adopted several cats. He’s still very French at heart, supporting the PSG Football team.

Christopher Smith

Payments Specialist

Christopher has a wealth of experience in the financial markets (over 25 years actually, but who’s counting?). His strength is to develop long term relationships with his business clients, advising them on the correct hedging strategy and product mix for their needs. Away from work, he spends his spare time with his family, trying to keep up with his four kids.

Louisa Northey

Payments Specialist

Louisa helps companies mitigate their risk within the FX markets by understanding their needs. She started her FX journey more than 10 years ago in the stunning County of Cornwall but now lives in London, enjoying the diversity of shops and restaurants. She usually spends her free time with friends and family, but she also loves dogs and is a big fan of Formula 1.

Karran Bambhra

Payments Specialist

Karran has accumulated several years of experience in FX helping SMEs mitigate and hedge their foreign exchange exposure. Outside of work, his biggest passion is football, taking most of his free time. He would happily cross borders just to watch and support his favourite team if needed. Going abroad would otherwise be to discover new destinations, or to party with friends.

Eleanor Paul

Operations Executive

Eleanor is one of our smiley faces who help our valued clients get onboarded, assisting with any potential issues. Originally from Brighton, she now likes to spend her weekends exploring new areas and hidden gems that London has to offer. Her favourite activities would be finding rare books in second hand shops and watching live comedy.

Pooja Majithia

Operations Executive

Pooja oversees trade bookings to ensure their payments arrive safely and on time, what matters to you also matters to her. She works in tandem with Eleanor to offer you the best service. Her hobbies include Bollywood dancing, which she’s been doing since she was a kid. When not doing stage shows, she loves travelling and photographing landscapes, especially sunsets.

Florence Couëdel

Lead Marketing

Florence’s mission is to make sure our clients journey is as smooth as it should be and in line with the company’s values. The world of FX is no stranger to her, especially since she moved to London. She has quite an international background, born and raised in France but with Japanese roots. Keen traveller, she recently spent 6 months in Southeast Asia and the Pacific.

Philip Blackwell

Lead UI/UX Designer

Philip is our king of user interfaces and loves trying out new techniques to make your experience even smoother. His curious nature is a true asset for the team, no challenge is too big for him. As a result, his input is everywhere within the business, whether via design or in the backend. When not in the office, you can generally find him indulging in arts and culture.

Kamen Hursev

Technical Lead

Kamen is in charge of new features and resolving bug fixes. Though his desk is a mess he is a stickler for keeping the code base super clean and readable. Outside work, he likes being away from the city… without his laptop. He enjoys going to the mountains or to the beach, or even to some nice small villages where he can disconnect from his busy lifestyle.

Deyan Garvanski

Front-end Developer

Deyan’s remit is to keep improving the front end of our platform into something slicker, more functional and more beautiful. He’s a real wizard, able to make even the most complicated design look great. His free time is spent with family, but he also likes watching sports, especially hockey. Otherwise, he doesn’t only like ‘playing’ video games, he also creates them.

Toma Popov

Back-end Developer

Toma is responsible for adding new functionalities in our unique platform, expanding our roster of integrated partners as well as churning out new business payment features. Apart from the stereotypical coder hobbies like PC games (no consoles!), he likes spending his free time cooking, swimming or snowboarding, reading books and getting better at travel photography.

Bertie

FxPlew’s co-star & Office dog

You will find Bertie running next to Paul while he’s recording his daily videos, putting a smile on your face first thing in the morning. Trying to keep up with the airwheel is probably his favourite part of the day, but he doesn’t mind all the cuddles he gets at the office too.
