His prior experience includes 12 years at the financial services firm TP ICAP and senior roles at securities firms in Europe and Asia. As Executive Chairman, Chenard will remain closely involved with MonetaGo’s activities and act as an advisor to the company’s management team.

Chenard continues: “In our next chapter, we are focused on cementing our position as the world’s foremost provider of trade finance fraud prevention technology and continuing to bridge information silos across the trade ecosystem. Neil is a great leader for this new phase of development. As company president, he has driven MonetaGo’s success, meeting the stringent requirements of our clients in one of the most highly regulated industries on earth. As CEO, he will take MonetaGo to the next level, making trade finance work better for everyone.”

“MonetaGo’s engagement with regulators, policymakers and industry leaders on the key opportunities and challenges in managing fraud risk have long distinguished it as a company, and as a team we are now poised to transform the way trade is financed,” says Neil Shonhard, CEO. “I am humbled to be taking the reins as CEO at such a pivotal time, and I look forward to collectively building on the work done so far to lead the company into its next chapter of growth and impact.”
