During his time at the DSI, Kuyler brought together participants from across the global trade ecosystem to facilitate interoperability and drive progress in trade and trade finance digitalisation. A leader in trade digitalisation, Oswald will remain engaged as Advisor to the ICC’s digital standards objectives and work closely with ICC UK in its mission to drive digital trade.
Before this, he spent seven years at mining giant BHP, where he last held the position of head of data strategy, leading several initiatives that covered blockchain technologies, electronic documentation in trade finance, data analytics and process automation.
Oswald Kuyler, Head of Strategy, Europe at MonetaGo, said: “We are on a mission to enable the financial ecosystem to effectively service more customers accelerated by increasing the productivity of financial workflows and drastically reducing risks. It is a privilege to join a company where I know the work we do every day will make a difference to so many. I look forward to driving the adoption of MonetaGo’s Secure Financing and workflow solution products, expanding their reach and effectiveness to the benefit of the worldwide trade finance industry as a collective. This will also enable me to continue my work around pursuing global standards, coalition building and advocating for change.”
Jesse Chenard, CEO and Founder of MonetaGo, said: “MonetaGo’s global momentum is driven by our focus on partnerships across the trade ecosystem. As we continue to work with key international organisations and associations to provide a universal, standardised deduplication utility that will safeguard trade finance, Oswald’s proven ability as a convener, thought leader and digitalisation advocate will be invaluable.”
