Item 8.01    Other Events.
MoneyGram International, Inc. (“MoneyGram”), today announced that Victor W. Dahir, an independent member of the Board of Directors of MoneyGram (the “Board”), passed away on Saturday, March 20, 2021. The Board, management and the employees of MoneyGram would like to express their deepest condolences to his wife and family.
Mr. Dahir served with distinction on the Board of MoneyGram for over a decade, having joined the Board in 2010. As Chairman of the Audit Committee, Mr. Dahir was instrumental in setting the tone of the committee and ensuring that it was held to the highest standard in performing its duties. He was an audit committee financial expert under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission and met the “financial sophistication” standard as defined under the Nasdaq listing standards.

Mr. Dahir had a long and successful career in finance which spanned decades. He worked for Visa U.S.A. Inc. (now Visa Inc.), a global payment technology company, from 1984 until his retirement in 2005, most recently as Executive Vice President, Finance and Administration and Chief Financial Officer of Inovant LLC, a subsidiary of Visa. He served as the Chief Financial Officer of Visa Inc. from 1991 to 2004 and held other positions of increasing responsibility from 1984 to 1991.

His reputation for integrity and expertise was broadly recognized in both professional and community circles. His knowledge, judgment and leadership were invaluable to MoneyGram and the Board. He will be missed.
