Surecomp appoints Enno-Burghard Weitzel as SVP, Strategy and Business Development

Published 

Toronto – Surecomp today announced the appointment of Enno-Burghard Weitzel as its Senior Vice-President of Strategy and Business Development to drive future growth and harness the accelerated demand for trade finance digitisation.

Mr Weitzel is a seasoned expert in the field of cash and trade in which he previously held senior positions at one of Europe’s pioneering trade finance banks. He has also spent five years at a leading management consultancy firm. Mr Weitzel will be joining Surecomp in March 2021 to help drive the company’s strategic direction and ensure product development is completely aligned with customer needs and the rapidly increasing appetite for trade finance digitisation across the globe.

The pandemic has proved to be a critical turning point in the adoption of trade finance digitisation, with a much broader spectrum of banks and corporates now recognising that manual, spreadsheet or paper-based processes are no longer fit for purpose. Mr Weitzel’s command of the trade finance industry will be key to understanding future development needs while identifying new market opportunities, enabling Surecomp customers to continue setting the new global standard in trade finance operations.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining Surecomp.” said Enno-Burghard Weitzel. “It’s a great company with a strong value proposition, reputation and outstanding client franchise. We will be working together – in collaboration with the banks and corporates – to continue offering the market the next generation trade finance platform, putting customers firmly at the center of an ecosystem that is open to any technology able to facilitate global trade. There is no better company to help drive the future of trade finance.”

“Enno’s appointment comes at a time of great excitement and growth for us,” explains Surecomp President Guy Perry. “His experience and insight will be invaluable as our customers continue to transform and we bring them into the digital trade finance age. I’m delighted he’s joining Surecomp and look forward to working with him.”
