SWIFT’s new office in Miami will aim to support the growth of the company’s operations in the region, being in strategic proximity to a number of LATAM hubs. Furthermore, SWIFT has been working in parallel with a number of LATAM developments related to financial reform, such as regulatory compliance.
Jairo Namur will head the new Miami office as its Regional Manager, Latin America. He joined SWIFT back in 2009, having since been responsible for formulating and executing SWIFT’s strategy in the region, including locales such as Brazil, Mexico and Colombia.
According to Chris Church, Chief Executive, Americas and Global Head of Securities, SWIFT, in a recent statement on the appointment and office, “The opening of the new office is a significant milestone for our Latin American business. We are now better positioned to meet the growing needs of our customers and the industry. Latin America is an important region for us and our office in Miami further reassures SWIFT‘s confidence in this fast-developing region.”
