Before he was appointed in MoneyGram, Haines was the chief financial officer of Driven Brands which is the biggest automotive facility enterprise in North America.

I look forward to working with the MoneyGram team as we continue to take bold, strategic action to achieve our goals.”

Holmes acknowledged Angelilli’s contributions, saying, “We thank Larry for his immense contributions to MoneyGram during his tenure of more than 12 years with the company. He has been an incredible partner and leaves a great legacy through the team and foundation he has built here at MoneyGram. We wish him all the best in his retirement.”
