IMTF group Announces New Executive: Christoph Erb

Givisiez, 08.07.2015. IMTF group, the Leading Swiss provider of process automation solutions in the international financial service industry since 1987, has reinforced its focus on digital Onboarding and Account Data Management with the recent addition of Christoph Erb to the company’s executive team to meet the needs of the expanding customer demand for their ICOS platform. Christoph Erb was appointed to Director/CEO of IMTF digitrans AG.

Christoph Erb comes with a wealth of experience in the financial sector, having spent the last 18 years at Finnova. Christoph Erb will be instrumental in supporting banks and insurances in their digital transformation thanks to IMTF flagship solution: ICOS.

“Financial institutions are facing new challenges with the transformation to digital, growth in volumes, increased complexity of financial products, additional regulatory requirements and pressure for higher efficiency,” says Mark Büsser, President. “Therefore, to rely on manual processes for “Know-Your-Customer” has become less efficient and extremely risky. Technology has become an essential tool for automated and compliant Client Onboarding and Account Data Management. We are very pleased to welcome Christoph Erb aboard during this exciting period of growth for the company.”
