Dessa Glasser, principal of the Financial Risk Group, has been appointed chair of the Global LEI Foundation (GLEIF). An existing GLEIF board member and chair of the organisation’s risk committee, Glasser was elected and became chair on 25 June 2023. Her mission is to continue to evolve and expand the Global LEI System to enable broader LEI adoption and use. Steven Joachim stepped down from the role at the end of his three-year term.

Glasser brings 35 years of leadership experience to the chair’s position having held director and managing director roles at, among others, the US Treasury, JPMorgan Chase, Credit Suisse, and IBM Global Services. She also serves as an independent board director at Oppenheimer Holdings.

Stephan Wolf, CEO at GLEIF, comments: “Dessa Glasser’s appointment as leader of the GLEIF board is welcome news. Her experience will be invaluable as GLEIF strives not only to ensure that the LEI plays an important role in the transparency of financial transactions, but also to establish the LEI and the vLEI as enablers of digital trust across multiple value chains where digital trust is a central principle.”

Three new non-executive directors have also been appointed to GLEIF’s board of directors: Folarin Alayande, vice president, public sector, Eastern Europe Middle East and Africa at Mastercard; Angela Kyermaten-Jimoh, Africa’s lead in strategic partnerships and multinational corporations at Microsoft; and Luis Felipe Monterio, CEO of Cateno Payments and former digital government secretary in the Brazilian Ministry of the Economy.
