Standard Chartered appoints new CIO of corporate, commercial & institutional banking
Standard Chartered has hired Rene W. Keller as its new chief information officer (CIO) for its corporate, commercial & institutional banking (CCIB) division.
“I believe that Standard Chartered is well positioned and equipped for further success, having made very significant progress on the journey to adopt modern technology and ways of working,” says Keller. This is one of the main reasons that excited him about being part of the Standard Chartered team. “We will build on our foundations as a leading bank for corporates and institutions to take our business to the next level,” he adds.
Based in Singapore, he will report to Dr Michael Gorriz, group CIO, and will be responsible for the business’ technology strategy, architecture and delivery value chain that will drive strategic business outcomes.
Commenting on Rene’s appointment, Michael Gorriz says: “Rene joins us at an exciting time as our CCIB business continues on its growth and evolution journey, and will play an instrumental role in driving the business forward by digitising our clients’ experience and co-creating innovative solutions by partnering and maintaining its fundamental role against the growing competition of fintech and big tech.”
Rene brings his expertise in IT management, strategy and client delivery. He was most recently group data officer and group head of innovation at Deutsche Bank, and prior to that, the global CIO for private, wealth & commercial clients.
Before Deutsche Bank, Rene was group CIO for Germany’s international exchange, Deutsche Börse, and was the COO for Information Mosaic, a fintech focused on corporate actions and post trade securities processing. He has also previously held technology leadership roles at Swiss Life, Credit Suisse and UBS.
