Banking software company Temenos announced that Craig Bennett has been promoted to Managing Director – Asia-Pacific, responsible for driving strategy and execution in the region.
Temenos continues to see strong momentum across the region, with recent milestones such as the Bank of Queensland going live on Temenos Banking Cloud, and Shanghai Commercial & Savings Bank selecting the Temenos platform to replace its legacy core systems for retail and corporate banking.
Based in Singapore, Craig has over 30 years of banking technology experience. He has lived in the Asia Pacific region since 1992 and has held senior leadership positions across retail and corporate banking, capital markets, risk management, and retail payments.
He brings a wealth of knowledge to the role, having served in senior sales positions at Temenos since 2018 and offers extensive experience in the sale, implementation and support of banking technology solutions.
Craig Bennett, Managing Director – Asia-Pacific, Temenos, commented:
“Over the past four years I’ve spent a lot of time getting to know our clients, familiarizing myself with their challenges, and partnering with them to achieve their strategic goals.
I’m delighted for the opportunity to take on this new role as Temenos continues to expand its presence across Asia-Pacific.”
Erich Gerber, President and Global Head of Field Operations, Temenos, said:
“Craig is a seasoned leader with 30 years of experience in the industry and deep expertise in Asia-Pacific.
I’m confident that with Craig’s leadership, we will continue to accelerate our business growth in the region and broaden our reach, as banks and non-banks adapt to new market trends like Banking-as-a-Service and open banking.”
