"We are pleased to be a part of this exciting opportunity to help Walmart deliver a true omni-channel experience. For nearly 20 years MoneyGram and Walmart have worked together to provide our customers with the highest quality and most convenient financial services," says Juan Agualimpia, MoneyGram's chief marketing officer and Walmart senior leader.
