About Odilon Almeida

I’m a senior global leader who drives transformational value creation in the financial, fintech, telecom and consumer goods sectors. During a 30+ year career, I’ve set strategy and led growth acceleration involving retail and digital transformations, organic expansion, turnarounds and the acquisition and integration of new businesses. My track record covers multiple continents and countries. The importance I place on integrity, accountability and diversity has helped me navigate different cultures and markets around the globe.

On March, 2020, I was appointed President, Chief Executive Officer, and member of the board of directors of ACI Worldwide (NASDAQ:ACIW), a global leading provider of real-time electronic payment and banking solutions to leading banks, financial institutions and corporations around the world.

From 2019 to February 2020, I was an Operating Partner at Advent International, one of the world’s largest private equity funds with $54.3B in assets under management across 41 countries. Prior to it, with a 17 years tenure at the Western Union Corporation (WU), the global leader in cross-border and cross-currency money movement, I advanced through increasingly significant general management roles. In my last position, as President Western Union Global Money Transfer, I led Western Union’s $5B global consumer retail and digital business across 200+ countries and territories. My experience at Western Union includes profitable growth acceleration of the global consumer business, transformational growth in Latin America through organic expansion and successful M&A and short-term turnarounds to restore growth across markets in the U.S., Europe, Middle East, Africa, Mexico and the Caribbean. It also includes leading digital transformation which established Western Union as the global digital leader in cross-border consumer money transfer.

I am also a member of the board of directors of Millicom International (NASDAQ:TIGO), a $6B international provider of cable and mobile services to 50M+ consumers in Latin America and Africa. A native of Brazil, I’ve lived and worked in cities in the U.S., Canada and Brazil. I am fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese.
