Swift appoints Max Mamondez as chief financial officer
Global banking cooperative Swift has appointed “seasoned finance executive” Max Mamondez as chief financial officer (CFO).
Swift says Mamondez has “cultivated innovation” in fast-paced international environments throughout his career, with stints at tech firms and consultancies such as Rockwell Automation, Diebold Inc and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Mamondez says it’s a “pivotal time” in the industry and is joining the company at an “exciting juncture”.
“Swift is widely recognised as the bedrock of the global financial services industry and is doing truly innovative work to power an inclusive digital future,” Mamondez adds.
Mamondez, who joins from the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) where he led initiatives in corporate financial planning and analysis, will serve on Swift’s executive committee and report directly to CEO Javier Pérez-Tasso.
Prior to LSEG, Mamondez served as CFO for international markets at payments giant Mastercard.
On the appointment, CEO Pérez-Tasso says Mamondez has a “proven record” of driving financial performance and a wealth of relevant global experience “that will be a real asset to the leadership team at Swift”.
“His perspective will be hugely beneficial as we deliver the next phases of our strategy to enable instant, frictionless and interoperable transactions worldwide,” Pérez-Tasso adds.
