Sioux Falls, SD, USA, London, UK & Cape Town, SA – ATMIA today announced that after 21 years with ATMIA, Mike Lee, CEO, is retiring from his position at the end of June.

“I’m totally grateful for my time with ATMIA,” Mike, who is also President of the ATM Security Association and Chairperson of the Consortium for Next Gen ATMs, said. “It’s been a fabulous journey I went on with my awesome team, brilliant Board of Directors and supportive members across the world.” 

Mike told ATMIA that from July, he’ll be in semi-retirement enjoying pursuing his writing and artistic career.

“When I joined ATMIA at the turn of the century, we had just under 100 members in the US, where the association was founded in 1997, and we had one product – ATM insurance. Today, we have thousands of members in about 70 countries, we run the ATM Security Association, we have developed an unbeatable portfolio of products, member services and annual industry events, we have a blueprint and template for the future of the ATM as an API App self-service device, and we have an important advocacy role globally for a complex industry based on ATM technology systems and the socio-economically vital role of cash. I can testify that the growth of ATMIA has been truly blessed. So I have nothing but thankfulness in my heart.”

ATMIA has formed a CEO Search Committee to draw up a shortlist of candidates, with the aim of finding a new CEO for ATMIA by June.

“We’ll be reaching out soon to those interested in this challenging and strategically invigorating international role,” Mike added. “Our 25th anniversary year is a good time to bring on board a new leader and a new leading voice for the industry.”
