Was General Manager of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) between May 1985 and December 1993. He joined the Bank in 1976 as Economic Adviser and Head of the Monetary and Economic Department and became Deputy General Manager in 1981.

These included the signing of the Basel Capital Accord, the establishment of the Group of Payment System Experts (now the Committee on Payments and Market Infrastructures) and the expansion of the BIS international banking statistics, now a major reference source for economists and other researchers.
