For personal reasons, Dave Sissens has decided to step down as CEO of RTGS.global. During his tenure, Dave provided outstanding leadership in establishing RTGS.global as an innovative settlement service built for the digital age. Dave will ensure a seamless transition to new leadership and will continue working with the company in an advisory capacity through our next phase of rapid growth, and beyond.

Dave has built a strong executive team. The Board is delighted to announce that Jarrad Hubble, currently serving as Chief Commercial Officer, will assume the role of Interim CEO, effective immediately. Jarrad will work under the direction and support of the Board, leading the day-to-day running and growth of the company. He will also continue to lead our commercialisation drive and building our world-class sales and client engagement function.

In parallel, RTGS.global continues to strengthen its Board of industry experts which already includes: Jim Cowles, former CEO of Citi in EMEA region; Marcus Treacher, who brings decades of experience at the forefront of transaction banking and financial innovation; and Dr. Ruth Wandhöfer, a globally recognized thought leader in fintech and financial services generally. From March, the Board will be joined by Phil Kenworthy as our newest Director. Phil is the former CEO of the UK’s high-value payment system (CHAPS), having previously held senior executive positions at CREST and CLS. We welcome Phil to the Board.

The Board and the company’s shareholders are committed to RTGS.global and want to thank Dave for his exceptional work in developing RTGS.global into the market-ready business it is. We wish him all the best and are grateful for his ongoing support of the firm in a new advisory capacity.
