Press Release: Savantor España launched to increase focus on Iberian region

Savantor is delighted to announce the launch of Savantor España, with Angel Benseny as its Managing Director.

Savantor España has been formed to focus on the specific needs of the banks and other financial organisations in Spain, Portugal and Andorra. Angel has over 30 years experience in payments systems. He worked for Visa and MasterCard International for more than 20 years in areas such as Operations, Risk, Business and Regulations for the Spain and Portugal markets. He has been managing Savantor’s business in Southern Europe for a number of years and has actively participated in transformation projects at Barclaycard, Citibank and WiZink.  

Angel Benseny, Managing Director of Savantor España said, “For several years, Savantor has successfully advised and supported clients in Southern Europe, operating from our UK base but also using local consultants and management. This success has resulted in the launch of Savantor España, so that the Savantor services will now be driven from Madrid. I am excited to take our business forward in this new phase using all my energy and industry knowledge. Together with support from Craig and the UK team, we will deliver the professionalism, expertise and availability that our customers expect from us.”

Craig Oldroyd, Managing Director of Savantor said, “This is an important next step in the advancement of the Savantor brand, recognising the positive reputation earned in the Iberian region. The establishment of Savantor España will enable Angel to place a sharper focus on the needs of the region and adapt and develop its services accordingly. I look forward to supporting Angel and the Savantor España team as they continue to deliver service excellence to both existing and new clients.”
