IADI appoints new secretary general

5 min read

The Executive Council of the International Association of Deposit Insurers (IADI) has appointed Eva Hüpkes as secretary general of IADI, effective 1 August 2023. She replaces David Walker, who stood down on 28 April 2023.

Eva Hüpkes is currently head of regulatory and supervisory policies at the Financial Stability Board (FSB). In her current position as well as her previous roles at the the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority and the International Monetary Fund, she has worked on a broad range of financial sector issues. She contributed substantially to the G20’s post-crisis financial and regulatory policy reforms, most notably the development of the global standards for crisis management and resolution.

Alejandro López, chair of the IADI Executive Council and president since 2022 said: “On behalf of the executive council and the IADI community, I want to thank David Walker for his numerous contributions to the Association over the past seven years and wish him the very best in his future endeavours. I welcome the appointment of Eva Hüpkes as the new IADI secretary general, and I am confident that, under her leadership, IADI’s role as an international standard-setter will continue evolving to support our members and promote best international practices on deposit insurance and resolution that protect financial stability.”
