IMF--7 Dec--International Monetary Fund

Susan Swart, the International Monetary Fund's (IMF) Chief Information Officer and Director of its Information Technology Department (ITD), has decided to leave the Fund in early 2018 for personal reasons. Ms. Swart joined the IMF in June 2012, following a distinguished career at the U.S. State Department.

"Susan brought with her the expertise and international experience needed to raise the quality of IT services at the Fund. Since then, Susan has worked tirelessly to improve our IT systems, from which we have all benefitted, on a daily basis," IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said. "She has fostered innovation, leading the move of our systems to the cloud, transitioning to managed services, advancing our work on knowledge management, and producing significant savings and efficiency in our IT and work practices."

Ms. Swart has played an instrumental role in ramping up the IMF's information security in an era of steadily mounting cyber threats. She has also helped better integrate technology with the Fund's policy and country work, and actively represented the Fund in IFI Women in IT, an international force in the advancement of women in technology driven by international financial institutions.
