About Alex

As a Global Industry Principal, Alex Kwiatkowski continuously analyzes the evolution of banking throughout the world, identifying where advanced analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) can deliver the biggest benefits. In his role, he focuses on articulating and promoting SAS' strategy and points of view to senior financial executives, partners, analysts and influencers. He is also responsible for creating thought-leadership narratives and supporting content.

Prior to joining SAS in October 2017, Alex was the Senior Strategist for Banking and Digital Channels at Finastra. Before that, he ran IDC’s Financial Insights team in Europe, where he was responsible for all advisory and consulting services, working closely with banks, technology vendors and service providers. Alex also spent four years as a Principal Analyst within Ovum’s Financial Services Technology Practice and, prior to that, he completed an interesting stint as a senior manager within LloydsTSB’s Business Delivery team.

With a career spanning more than 16 years in the banking industry – and a decade spent in the fast-moving telco world before that – Alex is a veritable mine of knowledge, with keen insights into how the banking sector must evolve. Blessed with a restless curiosity, passion for exploration and desire to challenge traditional thinking, Alex has a self-described "unquenchable thirst" for discovering new information – from the trivial to the revelatory. A regular speaker at major global industry conferences – including Asian Banker Summit, Retail Banking Europe, FT Middle East Banking Forum and Retail Banking Asia – Alex is energetic and engaging, willing to tackle the biggest and most controversial issues head-on.

Alex holds a BA in contemporary East European studies from University College London (UCL).

And in case you were wondering, his last name is pronounced "kviat-KOV-ski."
