Matthew S. Loeb has been named as the new CEO of ISACA, replacing acting CEO Ron Hale.
He will assume his role on the 1st September having led the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) as executive director most recently.
He said: “As enterprises continue to invest in information systems to build personal relationships with their customers and gain business efficiencies, challenges of compliance, risk, big data, privacy and cyber security are increasing complexity for ISACA members in their work to ensure trust and value from these systems.
“While ISACA already delivers resources to help, we have the opportunity to do even more, including increasing appreciation for the role our professionals play in advancing economic prosperity and keeping the digital world safe. I am privileged to have the opportunity to partner with ISACA’s board and employees to grow the organisation’s influence and impact globally.”
Tony Hayes, 2013-2014 international president of ISACA and chair of the CEO search panel, said: “The ISACA Board of Directors welcomes Matt, and we look forward to working closely with him and building on our 45-year history helping our members and their enterprises drive value through information and information systems.
“Matt is the right person to lead ISACA and is an ideal match for the execution of ISACA’s Strategy 2022, a long-term plan to expand the association’s reach into critical areas impacting business and technology, including cyber security and privacy. His experience in digital publishing, certification, global expansion and new programs in emerging technologies is key as we continue to enhance our resources for enterprises and members.”
