BERLIN, GERMANY - Media OutReach - 1 July 2022 - Global fintech MODIFI announced the appointment of Wenlong Huang as the General Manager for the Mainland China market.

With the appointment of Wenlong Huang, MODIFI plans to strengthen its position as a market leader in business payments. He will be working alongside Tony Au, who will focus on the Hong Kong market for MODIFI. Commenting on his appointment, Wenlong Huang said, "China is the largest B2B market in the world and MODIFI's commitment to the region is unmatched. I'm thrilled to join MODIFI and so excited to expand the business in mainland China - which is the largest B2B market in the world. We are confident to reach win-win by delivering value for our customers."
Following the launch of a shipment tracking tool last month, MODIFI has reaffirmed its commitment towards building a one-stop platform for business payments and trade management through another C-suite appointment. Luke Tuttle, a former executive from Klarna, has been appointed as the first General Manager for Trade Management Services by MODIFI.
"We are extremely excited to welcome Luke and Wenlong to MODIFI. Both of them are strong leaders with extensive experience building and scaling global high-growth Fintech companies. As the largest exporter of the world and home to some of the most advanced digital platforms, China is already an important market for MODIFI.

Luke will drive customer value by providing importers and exporters of all sizes very powerful tools to manage international trade in times of strained supply chains and economic uncertainty." said Nelson Holzner, MODIFI CEO & Co-Founder.
