Zurich, Switzerland – July 9, 2018 – Fides Treasury Services Ltd., the global leader in multi-bank connectivity and communications, has announced the appointment of Simon Kaufmann to the firm’s leadership team.

As Head of Client Relations and Marketing, Kaufmann leads sales and marketing for Fides, including customer relations and partnerships. Kaufmann has more than 18 years of experience in banking, including a combined 11 years with Credit Suisse and Fides. He joined Fides as a client relationship manager in 2014. In 2017, Fides formed a new department designed to improve and extend customer service under Kaufmann’s leadership.

“Simon has been an instrumental contributor to Fides’ market success and growth,” said Fides CEO, Andreas Lutz. “His knowledge of our customers, partners, and the industry makes him the perfect choice to drive our ongoing efforts to increase awareness and adoption of Fides multi-banking solutions as a member of our leadership team.”

Over the past four years, Fides has realized substantial growth, onboarding 80 new clients in 2017 alone. Industry recognition has followed: most recently, the firm was named the 2018 Multi-Banking Solution Provider of the Year by The European Magazine and in February received the Global Finance 2018 Treasury and Cash Management Award for Best Corporate Implementation.

Kaufmann will continue to focus on strategic business development, revenue generation, and increasing brand awareness through development of marketing content and outreach including the upcoming Fides Conference in August 2018 and participation in industry events such as the AFP Conference in Chicago in November.

“As organizations expand their global footprints, the need for multi-bank connectivity solutions will only continue to increase,” said Kaufmann. “I am excited at the opportunity to take an even more active role spearheading our sales and marketing outreach to continue our upward growth trajectory while providing the highest possible levels of service and support to our clients worldwide.”
