Pedro Sousa Cardoso returns to Emirates NBD as new chief digital officer
UAE-based bank Emirates NBD has hired a new chief digital officer in former Standard Chartered executive Pedro Sousa Cardoso.
Cardoso also joins as the head of NBD’s digital banking venture, Liv.
He spent four years at Standard Chartered, leaving as senior managing director for digital commerce and regional head in South Asia.
This is Cardoso’s second stint at Emirates NDB. He worked at the bank between 2011 and 2017 as head of multichannel and digital transformation.
He replaces Evans Munyuki, who departed the UAE bank in March. Munyuki announced his departure on social media, saying that catching COVID-19 gave him a “greater appreciation of life”.
Liv launched a new-look design last year, intending to create an ecosystem worthy of a “super-app”. It added several third-party services, include restaurant bookings, event tickets, and flights.
Emirates NBD completed the third phase of its ongoing Finacle core banking rollout at the start of 2020.
