WASHINGTON – BAFT, the leading global financial services association for international transaction banking, has named Scott Stevenson as its new Senior Vice President of Trade. Stevenson will lead the association’s trade-focused policy, practices, and education initiatives, and will support its trade-related councils and committees.

“Scott has a wealth of experience in trade, and we are delighted to have him as a part of the BAFT team,” said Tod Burwell, President & CEO of BAFT. “His diverse geographic experience, coupled with his commercial banking and multi-lateral development banking background, is a great foundation to provide our members around the world with the insight, tools and resources they need to help them succeed in trade finance.”

Stevenson replaces Stacey Facter, who retired from BAFT in the same role overseeing all of the trade-related activities of the association. Prior to joining BAFT, Stevenson was a senior advisor for AF Capital Partners, which provided expertise in emerging market structured and project finance for development banking institutions. For two years, he consulted development banks and export credit agencies following a 17-year career at the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the World Bank Group in various trade and investment project leadership roles. Before joining the IFC, Stevenson was the regional head of financial institutions at Standard Chartered Bank in Singapore. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Colgate University, and his MBA from York University.
