JP Morgan’s Michael Quinn has been appointed to banking lobbying group Baft-IFSA’s board of directors.

Quinn has a wealth of experience in the industry and is currently a managing director responsible for product management of traditional trade products in JP Morgan’s global trade business.

Furthermore, Quinn was the former chairman of IFSA, the organisation which merged with BAFT in early 2010.

“I look forward to this opportunity and hope to build upon the exemplary leadership that Baft-IFSA has shown,” Quinn notes.

Donna Alexander, chief executive officer of the group adds: “We are very pleased that Mike has joined our board and we are delighted to have him serve. He brings a wealth of experience in banking and his breadth of knowledge in trade financing and the transaction banking space will be a tremendous benefit to our board.”

Quinn succeeds his JP Morgan colleague Mike McKenzie on the board.
