Standard Chartered today announces the appointment of Rene W. Keller as Chief Information Officer (CIO), Corporate, Commercial & Institutional Banking (CCIB). Based in Singapore, Mr Keller 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.

Rene Keller brings to Standarc Chartered his expertise in and strong focus on client delivery. He was most recently Group Data Officer and Group Head of Innovation at Deutsche Bank. Before that, he was the Global CIO for Private, Wealth & Commercial Clients. Prior to Deutsche Bank, he was Group CIO for Germany’s international exchange, Deutsche Börse, and was the COO for Information Mosaic, a fintech firm 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 his appointment, 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 notes its investment drive in technology and launching partnerships to deliver a seamless experience for its clients and their ecosystems. In November 2019, the bank announced the rollout of mobile tokens in more than 38 markets for corporate clients who use 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 among the founding banks of a new venture which aims to bring the Trade Information Network into production. The goal is to address 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.
