LIXI Press Release – LIXI appoints Lisa Claes as new Board Chair

LIXI Limited announced today that Lisa Claes, Executive Director of Customer Delivery, ING DIRECT, has been elected as Chair of the LIXI Board. Commenting on her appointment, outgoing Chairman Paul Lahiff said:

"I welcome Lisa's appointment. She brings vast executive experience in local and global financial services markets to the role. As the industry embraces the opportunities presented by rapidly changing customer expectations, her leadership and expertise in digital and data utility will be of great value to the Board and the entity."

Ms Claes has more than 20 years’ experience at an executive level in the banking and wealth management industries following an earlier career as a barrister and Group General Counsel. She regularly presents on a range of issues with the aim of sharing insights and influencing the wider financial services industry.
Commenting on the role LIXI plays, Ms Claes said:

"By standardising core components of data exchange in the lending value chain, LIXI has played a key role in introducing significant efficiencies to the lending industry, and in so doing, has enhanced the experience for customers of brokers and lenders alike."

"My vision for the future is that as customers increasingly demand innovative financial services solutions, the drive for standardisation through intelligent use of data will become more critical. Standardising both enables efficiencies and ensures focus on those parts of the service provider’s proposition that can be truly differentiating for the customer."

“I look forward to working collaboratively with my fellow board members, the LIXI executive and members to continue to deliver value to the industry as it navigates the new financial order."
