In the latest development of its global expansion strategy ITRS Group Ltd has appointed Angie Walker as Global Head of Sales and Ian Salmon, as Global Head of Business Development.
ITRS is the leading global provider of performance monitoring and management technology to the world's financial community and these two appointments are seen as core elements in the next phase of the company's global growth.
Previously both Angie and Ian held senior positions at Fidessa, Angie as Enterprise Sales Director and Ian as Head of Business Development. Collectively, they bring over 50 years' experience of working in and providing services to the financial technology space to ITRS.
Angie Walker says: "I see a fantastic upside to the ITRS business and want to be a part of it. ITRS is in a unique position to be able to offer financial institutions the ability to monitor their entire business flows in real time. The need for greater controls, driven by regulatory and compliance changes as well as reputational and operational risks, are putting organisations under enormous pressure. ITRS is in an excellent place to offer the tools which help meet these challenges. I very much look forward to being a key part of the ITRS management team and helping to grow what is a very powerful and diverse business proposition, both cross-asset and cross-market, over the coming years."
Ian Salmon says: ""ITRS has a market-leading product suite, used and valued by major global financial institutions to ensure consistent quality and customer service across their mission-critical technology platforms. As the requirement for service performance, availability and accountability continue to be driven by the ever-changing regulatory and service-focused environment, Geneos is uniquely placed to help customers meet these challenges. An important part of my remit will be to establish key centres of excellence. Being a part of driving forward this award-winning technology platform into new markets and customer segments is a fantastic prospect."
"It is great to have Angie and Ian on our team," said Kevin Covington, CEO of ITRS. He continued: "I'm particularly impressed with their track record and experience in sales and business development and I have no doubt ITRS will benefit enormously from their contribution. Ian's focus on business development will help us to support targeted global and regional sales campaigns into new markets and market tiers, while Angie will help drive our global sales, and to extend our global reach."
The ITRS Geneos product set provides critical services to the financial sector, from managing risks and providing advanced visibility and greater reliability of key systems, to helping reduce latency.
