TSYS announced that David Duncan has been appointed as general manager for TSYS Brazil.
A 14-year veteran of TSYS, Duncan most recently served a dual role as Group Executive for China and Southeast Asia while also supporting the corporate strategy group in mergers and acquisitions.

Duncan will report to Kelley Knutson, executive vice president of TSYS International.
