Citigroup Appointed European Commercial Card Provider To BASF
BASF has appointed Citigroup to provide their employees with Visa-branded travel and entertainment corporate expense cards across Europe. Francesco Vanni d’Archirafi, head of Citigroup’s Global Transaction Services business in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, said: ‘We are pleased to provide BASF with a commercial card solution that will help them run their business more efficiently. This appointment deepens a long-standing relationship between BASF and Citigroup.’ Over 5,200 cards have been issued to BASF employees already in Germany with plans to expand the programme across Europe.
