Quiñones will be serving as National Sales Manager, focusing his efforts on growing Prepay Nation’s distribution base within the Financial Services Centers market, with an emphasis on the Spanish-speaking sector.
Recently responsible for prepaid product launches at money transfer firm Sigue, Quiñones has a wealth of both sales experience and familiarity with the value remittance market. He has worked with industry leaders such as Western Union, MoneyGram, Praxell and Softgate, garnering a reputation for excellent salesmanship and strong customer relationships. Originally from Puerto Rico, Quiñones will lead both west
coast and Spanish-speaking retail business development for the Prepay Nation network ( www.prepaynation.com
With 53 million Hispanic individuals living in the United States, over 19 million of whom are immigrants, the Spanish-speaking population is a large and growing force in the US economy. Businesses catering to the needs of this demographic often include cross-border money remittance services—a high-demand service, with over $41 billion being remitted to Spanish-speaking Latin America from the U.S. annually. According to World Bank data analyzed by the Pew Research Center, funds transferred to Latin America account for a third (33%) of remittances from the U.S.
“Money remittance is a vital service, but often an expensive one,” said Quiñones. “By selling international airtime top-ups as a form of remittance, businesses can bring a no-fee option to their customers who want to support their loved ones back home. It’s a huge value, and I am eager to help our partners grow by incorporating it into their offerings.”
“We are excited to have Frank on our team,” said Anurag Jain, CEO of Prepay Nation. “His dedication to providing strong value to customers, along with his Spanish fluency and familiarity with both prepaid products and cross-border remittance channels, are going to be excellent assets to Prepay Nation. We’re confident that he will contribute greatly not only to our growth, but also to the success of each of our retail and distribution partners.”
