In his new role he succeeded Rob Reeg, who was promoted last month to president of the global technology and operations unit in O'Fallon, Mo. The unit manages all MasterCard operations.

Mr. Manchisi will oversee "computer infrastructure and operations, network engineering, customer support, processing solutions and service definition, and customer technology relationship management," MasterCard said in a press release.
