Kuala Lumpur, 10 April- CIMB Group announces the impending appointment of Olivier Crespin as the Chief FinTech Officer for its CIMB FinTech unit, which will explore new, innovative banking solutions.
Crespin, a French national, is a graduate in International Business, Trade and Tax Law from the Universite de Metz in France and has more than 28 years of banking experience, a wide international exposure and held different business and operational positions across Europe, Latin America, Asia and North America.
One of Crespin’s biggest successes was the introduction of India’s first completely paperless, signatureless, branchless mobile banking, which was largely based on biometrics and artificial intelligence.
Chief Executive of CIMB Group, Tengku Dato’ Sri Zafrul Aziz said, "I am thrilled to welcome Olivier to the CIMB family, to head our newly set-up CIMB FinTech, which is our very own FinTech hub for us to experiment and realise our digital ambitions. Its operating model will be agile, dynamic and nimble, in order to provoke, incubate and execute ideas that will either redefine or enhance CIMB's products and services.”
“We are prepared to invest significantly in FinTech propositions that will add value and enhance customer experience across the region and I'm confident that Olivier will help us do just that,” he added.
