European Payments Council names new director general


The European Payments Council has named Giorgio Andreoli as the new director general, replacing Etienne Goosse.

According to Finextra, Goosse – who has served in the role for 12 years – will step down later this month.

Andreoli most recently worked at the European Central Bank (ECB) on the Digital Euro project. From 2010 to 2021, Andreolli served as a managing director at Accenture, working on payments and open banking projects for Italian and European clients.

Goosse also previously worked in the telecommunications industry as director of strategic marketing at Ericsson South-East Europe.

Andreoli said, “It’s a tremendous honour to take over leadership of the EPC. I look forward to helping build the future of payments in Europe while addressing the opportunities and challenges facing the payment industry head on and in close coordination with all EPC members.”

EPC chair Javier Santamaría added, “I believe that Giorgio’s extensive professional experience should help the EPC and its members meet the challenges of coming years, and I wish Giorgio great success in this new position. I also thank Etienne for all his hard work and fantastic achievements at the EPC over the past twelve years.”

Back in 2021, the EPC began the search for a Malware Information Sharing Platform (MISP) to aid real-time fraud information sharing.
