UK Export Finance has appointed Jem Eskenazi, formerly of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, as its chief technology officer.

Eskenazi will act as a champion for digital technologies in UKEF and lead work to develop digital support for  UK exporters.

UKEF’s chief operation officer Bhaskar Dasgupta said of the appointment: “We’re delighted to welcome Jem to UKEF as chief technology officer, with his extensive experience of delivering user-centred digital services. 

“His pioneering approach to information technology teams and systems will ensure we in UKEF can continue to make exports happen by driving innovative technological solutions across the business.”

Ezkenazi (pictured right) added: “UKEF provides competitive, innovative and flexible support for exports for firms of any size, in any sector. It, therefore, needs internal and external digital infrastructure that meets requirements as diverse and dynamic as the customers we support. 

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead the organisation’s next phases in IT efficiency and innovation.”
