We’re popping the corks here at World First, as we’ve just moved into our new office in Austin, Texas!

Don’t you just love the smell of a new office? With that fresh, clean, just-unwrapped smell. The sparkle of new desks. New carpets, new furniture. Well, yes, you’ve probably guessed that we’re pretty excited about it all.

And with good reason. The reason we’ve had to move into a new office is because we need somewhere bigger because we’re getting bigger.

We’ve already got an office in Washington, D.C. and now’s the right time to bolster our U.S. operation, and continue our mission to help more Americans save money on international currency transfers.

Yes, it’s our mission, and we’ve chose to accept it. And what better place from which to start this exciting new chapter in our story than our swanky new place in downtown Austin.

Our CEO, Michael Ward is just as excited as the rest of us:

“This city embodies speed, technology and entrepreneurial thinking and so it felt like a really natural fit for us. For too long people have had to accept sub-standard exchange rates and poor service from banks who offer a generalist approach to their customers.”

Well, no more! Our amazing exchange rates and awesome service have arrived in Austin!
