Peter has been working in the Card Payment industry for over 30 years. In the mid 1980’s, he was headhunted to set-up and launch a VISA card center in Geneva. Later, responding to another call, he moved to Zurich, where, as First Vice President and Member of the Management Committee, he managed and grew the VISA card center of Swiss Bank Corporation (now UBS Card Center). Further career moves brought him to Germany, France and back to Switzerland, where in 2007 he joined IATA (International Air Transport Association). At IATA, his focus was on Fraud Prevention and Detection, PCI DSS and acceptance of card payments in a common use environment (airports, travel agents).
