He also spent six years as president, First Data International, building all the company's global activities outside of the U.S., including merchant acquiring, merchant transaction processing, issuer processing and ATM network solutions business units.

“David's knowledge and experience has given us a perspective to help shape our strategy and capabilities in additional payments choices that we can offer to customers and consumers,” said Ajay Banga, president and CEO, Mastercard.

“He has been an integral part of the effort to bring the Mastercard and Vocalink businesses together.

We wish David all the best in this next chapter of his career,” said Miebach.
