On December 15, 2023, the Board appointed Karen Higgins-Carter to serve as a director of International Money Express, Inc. (the “Company”), effective as of December 15, 2023. Ms. Higgins-Carter was appointed as a Class II director of the Company for a term coinciding with the remaining term of the Class II directors (that is, until the next election of such class of directors at the Company’s 2026 Annual Meeting of Stockholders), and until her successor is elected and qualified or until her earlier death, resignation, retirement, disqualification or removal from office. Ms. Higgins-Carter was appointed to serve on the Board’s Nominating & Corporate Governance Committee and Audit Committee.

Ms. Higgins-Carter is the Executive Vice President, Chief Information and Digital Officer of Gilbane Inc., one of the largest privately held construction and real estate development firms. Before joining Gilbane, Ms. Higgins-Carter was Chief Information Officer at publicly traded Webster Financial Corporation (NSYE: WBS). Earlier, Ms. Higgins-Carter was the Managing Director, Head of the Office of the CIOO at MUFG Union Bank (a US subsidiary of the largest bank in Japan), Technology General Manager for Bridgewater Associates, and the Managing Director, Head of Consumer Risk Technology at JPMorgan Chase. Ms. Higgins-Carter has served since May 2022 on the boards of Otsuka America Pharmaceutical and Otsuka Pharmaceutical Development & Commercialization, and is a member of the Compensation and Organizational Development committee.

Ms. Higgins-Carter earned a dual degree in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) and Economics and Business (BA) at Lafayette College. Ms. Higgins-Carter has also completed executive education programs at MIT Sloan (Corporate Innovation; Blockchain Technologies) and Harvard (Cybersecurity: The Intersection of Policy and Technology). She maintains an active Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) credential.

The election of Ms. Higgins-Carter fills a vacancy on the Board created by the Board’s decision on December 15, 2023 to increase the size of the Board from eight to nine directors, and was based upon the recommendations of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board. There is no arrangement or understanding between Ms. Higgins-Carter and any other person pursuant to which Ms. Higgins-Carter was selected as a director. Ms. Higgins-Carter has not had an interest in any transaction since the beginning of the Company’s last fiscal year, or any currently proposed transaction, that requires disclosure pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
