Share article

After a year of waiting, Swift has finally announced its successor to Jim Donovan as global head of securities: ex-Radianz managing director Chris Church. As well as leading the securities division, Church will also head the Americas region and be a member of the leadership council. Church will report to Swift CEO Lázaro Campos and has taken on responsibility for the securities steering committee of the board.

Following Donovan’s surprise exit in April 2007, Swift has had a number of acting heads and there was speculation about the future direction of the securities division. Church was managing director of Radianz Services at BT Global Financial Services for two years.
