David Cameron Joins First Data’s International Advisory Board
First Data Corporation (NYSE: FDC), a global leader in commerce-enabling technology, today announced the appointment of former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom David Cameron as the newest member of the company’s international advisory board.
As a company advisor, Cameron will work on strengthening First Data’s presence in key regions around the world and expanding the company’s footprint in new and existing markets.
“David Cameron is one of the world’s most well-regarded leaders and we are truly honored to have him join First Data in his capacity on our international advisory board,” said Frank Bisignano, chairman and chief executive officer of First Data. “As we work to strengthen and grow our presence in key markets, David Cameron’s experience and advice will be invaluable to both First Data and our global clients.”
Cameron served as prime minister of the United Kingdom from 2010 to 2016, leading Britain’s first coalition government in nearly 70 years and, after the 2015 general election, forming the first majority conservative government in the UK in more than two decades. As the U.K.’s youngest Prime Minister in two centuries, he came to power at a moment of economic crisis. Under his leadership, the U.K.’s deficit was reduced by more than two-thirds; one million businesses set-up; a record number of jobs were created; and Britain became the fastest-growing major advanced economy in the world.
