Antilley will join Cardtronics, effective May 30, from Bank of America, where he served as senior vice president, Global Information Security Operations Executive.
"Adding Dan's expertise and experience with one of the world's largest financial institutions further emphasizes our focus on establishing Cardtronics as the premier global ATM partner for financial institutions," said Steve Rathgaber, chief executive officer, Cardtronics. "As an organization, we made a commitment to our customers and stakeholders that Cardtronics will be a leader in information security when we first established the chief information security officer role at our company four years ago.

As chief information security officer, Antilley will be responsible for Cardtronics' enterprise-wide information security and technology risk strategy, with an emphasis on safeguarding company, customer and ATM user information.
