O'Connell Plays Tech Dad for Western Union

ENGLEWOOD, CO October 1, 2017 - - While the reasons for needing to send money around the country or around the world haven’t changed that much, the technology we use to do it has changed. For Western Union, the leader in global payment services, their message for consumers is that, in spite of all the technology that helps make sending money possible, actually sending the money through Western Union is usually pretty easy.

In their recent national broadcast radio commercial to make that point, voice actor Peter K. O’Connell was selected as the voice of a well-meaning but not always so tech-savvy Dad who impresses himself and his college-aged son by easily transferring money via the Western Union app.
