Morris will join ACI with over 23 years of financial crime and payments experience. He is a key ambassador for the need to evolve financial crime business solutions to address Identity Theft through Enterprise Risk and Alert Management technology systems. Morris joins after heading up Carrekerâs EMEA Risk & Compliance team for the past eight years.
Divitt joins the company having previously worked for the Interac Association in Canada where he was responsible for Debit Card fraud analysis and solution building for the Association's 90 plus members. He was instrumental in enhancing and administering a nationwide, shared fraud system used by the membership to share Debit Card fraud data. Prior to working at the Interac Association, Divitt supported CertaPay in launching and implementing Canadaâs first Email Money Transfer (EMT) system. Divitt also helped to enhance the detection facilities and processes to a point where losses from fraud using EMT were at an all-time low. Such experience will be invaluable for ACIâs UK customers who are facing similar issues with the imminent introduction of Faster Payments.
