Is Former SWIFT CEO Finally Taking Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse' Job Offer?

    Former SWIFT CEO, Gottfried Leibbrandt, who left the global payments system back in June, may have taken up Ripple CEO's job offer based on a Google search for Ripple executives.

    • Google shows Gottfried Leibbrandt as an executive at Ripple
    • Ripple already has other former SWIFT executives in employment
    • XRP price down 4.07% while trading at $0.2884

    About nine months back, during a Paris FinTech Forum 2019, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse jokingly offered Gottfried Leibbrandt, the then CEO of SWIFT who was stepping down from his position in June, a job at the company saying, “Ripple is hiring.”

    And now, Leibbrandt is shown by Google among the Ripple Chief Executive Officers’ list that includes Brad Garlinghouse, Chris Larsen, and Yoshitake Kitao.

    While Garlinghouse is currently serving as the CEO of the company, Larsen co-founded Ripple Labs which developed Ripple, a software that enables instant transfer of money between parties.

    President and CEO of SBI Holdings, Inc. Yoshitake Kitao Joined Ripple’s Board of Directors in April this year.

    Now, looks like Leibbrandt is the latest addition to Ripple. However, he won’t be the first one that is a former SWIFT executive.

    Back in 2016, Ripple hired Marcus Treacher as its new global head of strategic account, who was a member of the Global Board at SWIFT for 6 years.

    Marjan Delatinne, who has been working for the past almost three years as a Global Head of Banking at Ripple and before that served as the Sales Director at the company. Delatinne is also a former Swift employee as the Head of Business Development in Payments Market Initiatives and Securities Market initiatives, as per her LinkedIn profile.

    So, it won’t be a surprise if Leibbrandt becomes an executive at Ripple. However, there has been no official confirmation for the same from Ripple. But it is expected that Ripple might share the details during the ongoing Swell event.
