Chicago Fed’s Aadland to Lead Secure Payments Strategy

The Federal Reserve today named Todd Aadland as the system’s secure payments strategy leader, responsible for leading the Fed’s efforts to manage fraud risk and advance the payments system’s safety and resiliency as the Fed and private sector move toward faster payments. Aadland is currently SVP at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago and will report to the Chicago Fed’s Gordon Werkema, who in June was named strategy director for the overall faster payments effort.

“Todd’s combination of business experience and technical expertise is exactly what is needed to partner with the industry on improved payments security,” said Werkema. “Equally important, he has a collaborative leadership style that will be key to advancing on some very tough industry challenges.”
