Marc Braet joined EastNets from SWIFT, the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, a member-owned cooperative enabling its customers to automate and standardize financial transactions, thereby lowering costs, reducing operational risk and eliminating inefficiencies from their operations.

"I am delighted to be part of EastNets' team, and to help our clients and the financial services market to effectively manage enterprise and payment risk, and meet evolving regulatory demands and business needs."

During his 13 years at SWIFT, Marc Braet headed the sales staff covering the Benelux, Nordic and Baltic countries with an annual revenue responsibility of +50 MEUR, and was responsible for various strategic sales activities including building a strong network in Northern Europe, reorganizing commercial teams for improved alignment and performance, and managing the successful roll-out of industry programs, such as SEPA, for SWIFT. Prior to joining SWIFT, Marc held several positions at TNT Express Worldwide. Marc holds a University Degree in Economics from Katholieke Universiteit Leuven.
