A letter from Husky’s CEO
In 2014 I met Mauricio, my future partner at Husky. At the time, we were both living in Brazil and working remotely abroad as programmers for an American startup.
It was quite a struggle getting the payments in USD to our bank accounts in Brazil. We had to get our paperwork notarized and then take it to the bank because “the manager said so.” We had to call the exchange broker every two weeks to let them know they could settle the transactions, only to find out that, on that month, fees would be higher “just because.”
Did things have to be that hard? Receiving a payment abroad should be as easy as getting a paycheck in Brazil. Payday = money in the bank!
We founded Husky in 2016 with that goal: ending the bureaucracy of international transfers.
We met a lot of great people along the way.
Since the beginning, we have had clients from all over Brazil who trusted and supported Husky. Some of them became good friends of ours. We also had the opportunity to work with a highly skilled group of individuals full of hunger, humbleness, dreams, and eagerness to do the work of their lives. People are willing to step up their game and go big.
Each day with that team has taught us to respect each other, challenge ourselves, and give and take feedback (for real). We have learned always to grow.
Just the other day, Mauricio got a text from Patrick Sigrist, the founder at Nomad. We showed up at their office the next day, sharing ideas and a vision for the future with Patrick and Lucas Vargas, Nomad’s CEO.
The truth is that Husky and Nomad were already building the same thing: a global account to get paid in any currency, save and invest in USD and spend your money as you feel you should, anywhere in the world. So we decided to do it together. We are overwhelmed with excitement and entirely devoted to providing a one-of-a-kind experience for those who are always thinking and doing their math in USD, determined to live a limitless life.
Husky is now a Nomad company, and we have a feeling you’re going to love it!
Tiago Santos, CEO at Husky
