LONDON, ENGLAND and PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA and CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Jan. 8, 2016) - Risk management and payment processing specialist Vogogo Inc. ("Vogogo") (TSX VENTURE:VGO) today announced that its current COO, Tom Wenz, will transition to the role as Vogogo's Chief Financial Officer (CFO), effective immediately. Mr. Wenz replaces current part-time CFO, Karim Teja, who will transition to a consulting role within the Company.
US-based Wenz, a certified public accountant with an MBA, brings a wealth of CFO and industry experience to the new role.

He is a seasoned payments and risk management professional who brings comprehensive capabilities to the CFO role. Tom is a natural CFO and I am confident that, within this role, he will elevate the Company to another level of excellence. We really appreciate everything Karim has done for Vogogo and we look forward to his ongoing support in a consulting capacity."
