Gresham Computing plc, a leading provider of transaction control solutions to international financial institutions and corporates, today announced that is it has opened an office on Wall Street. The company has also appointed Frank Filice to spearhead its North American sales effort.
The new base in the US comes off the back of a hugely successful year for Gresham. 2013 was a record year for the firm as its flagship Clareti Transaction Control (CTC) solution was purchased by leading banks, insurance brokers and buy-side firms.
"Wall Street lies at the heart of the world's financial markets and establishing a base here is part of our worldwide growth strategy," said Bill Blythe, global business development director, Gresham Computing. "Frank is a great fit for our business as he has years of business development experience in the financial technology space. We're confident that his team will significantly expand our North American client base."
Filice began his career on Wall Street at the Industrial Bank of Japan, then Eurobrokers Inc., where he was head of the Interest Rate Options desk, and finally in fixed income and foreign exchange trading at Société Générale Fimat. Most recently, Filice was vice president of sales at Axletree Solutions. He has also held sales roles at CAMO Software and Inetsoft Technology. Filice will report into Bill Blythe, global business development director. He will be responsible for supporting existing Gresham CTC relationships in North America as well as winning new business in the region.
The New York City office at 40 Wall Street is Gresham's second in North America. The new base will complement the company's existing support operations in Denver, Colorado.
