Dinner: Where are we now?
Dinner: Gottfried Leibbrandt, CEO of SWIFT
Background:With SIBOS travelling the world outside Europe for several years, Londoners who have not been to the show lately may be losing touch with SWIFT’s direction.
To rectify this we are delighted to be hosting Gottfried Leibbrandt, CEO of SWIFT, to discuss where the infrastructure, network and standards are now. What are the future directions and vision for SWIFT and its partners? How will the service deliver for the banking community and ensure fitness for the future?
Gottfried Leibbrandt succeeded Lázaro Campos as CEO of SWIFT in July 2012. Gottfried joined SWIFT from Mckinsey in 2005, to focus on the development of the SWIFT2010 strategy. Upon completion of the strategy, he was appointed as Head of Standards and then in 2007, was promoted to Head of Marketing. More recently, Gottfried was a key architect behind the creation of the SWIFT2015 strategy, which is being implemented and remains a priority focus for the co-operative.
