Swift begins search for new CIO as Fish announces retirement

18 June 2014  |  4271 views  |  0 Swift logo

Financial messaging network Swift is on the hunt for a new chief information officer as incumbent CIO Mike Fish retires after eight years in the role.

Fish joined the banking co-operative in 1999 from US telecom firm Ameritech, where he held various senior management positions in IT.

He was appointed CIO in July 2006, since when he has been responsible for overseeing the SwiftNet messaging platform migration and the construction and go-live of a new operating centre in Switzerland.

Fish has also led the development and launch of a number of new commercial services, including Swift's Lite2 connectivity option, the sanctions screening service and the Target2-Securities (T2S) European securities settlement engine project

Says Fish. "Over the time I have been here, volumes and users have grown consistently; our services and functionalities have increased; and the challenges and complexities have multiplied."

Swift says it will look at both internal and external candidates for the position, which becomes open in January 2015, when Fish formally steps down.
