FINCAD, the leading provider of OTC derivatives pricing and risk management solutions, has today announced the opening of its London and New York offices. The new offices will allow FINCAD to enhance pre-sales and post-sales support to local customers, while expanding marketing, sales and implementation of its enterprise-scale solutions in Europe and North America. To help support global growth, the company has also made two important promotions: James Church as Vice President of Product Management, and Lori Aizer Bryenton as Vice President of Marketing.
“The impetus for opening the new offices—and making these appointments—is to meet the growing demand for our enterprise solutions,” said Bob Park, President and CEO of FINCAD. “Over the last year, we have witnessed a surge of interest in our solutions for large implementations on the part of banks, insurance companies and asset managers alike. We are looking forward to working with existing and new customers, helping them to deploy software solutions that give a truly holistic view of their valuation and risk.”
"The offices in New York and London will give us new bases from which to further support customers in the United States and Europe. FINCAD has always delivered a very strong sales and client services experience to our clients, but we’re looking forward to closer partnership with many of our most important clients,” added Bill Stewart, VP of Sales and Client Services. “These new facilities will help us expand upon our professional service offerings to our entire customer base.”
“I am very excited about the staff we are attracting in both cities,” added Stewart. “These new members of our team are highly successful professionals who are coming to FINCAD from first-rate organizations in the financial industry. They will enhance our ability to ensure the success of FINCAD customers in their regions.”
