Standard Chartered announced the appointment of Rene W. Keller as Chief Information Officer (CIO), Corporate, Commercial & Institutional Banking (CCIB). Based in Singapore, he reports to Dr Michael Gorriz, Group Chief Information Officer, and is responsible for the business’ technology strategy, architecture and delivery value chain that will drive strategic business outcomes.

A seasoned leader in IT management and strategy, Rene brings to the Bank his expertise in and strong focus on 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.

Commenting on Rene’s appointment, Michael Gorriz said: “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 W. Keller said: “The banking industry is in the middle of a fundamental transformation, driven by technology investments, new client expectations, innovation and growth. 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. This is one of the main reasons that excited me 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.”

Standard Chartered is investing in technology and building partnerships to deliver a seamless experience for its clients and their ecosystems. The Bank most recently rolled out mobile tokens in more than 38 markets for corporate clients who uses its Straight2Bank platform for cash management and trade transactions, allowing them to secure their two-factor authentication from their mobile phones. It also joined the Enterprise Ethereum Alliance, a members-driven standards organisation, to explore potential opportunities to collaborate with other leading industry players to deepen blockchain research and application in the banking sector. Standard Chartered is also one of six founding banks to establish a new venture to bring the Trade Information Network into production, with the goal of addressing unmet demand for financing earlier in the supply chain, and making it easier for corporates to easily and securely communicate trade information directly with banks of their choice.
