As a successful young woman in the finance industry, Veronica Augustsson has made an impressive journey and was recently mentioned in Financial News' "40 Under 40 Rising Stars of Trading and Technology" list. She has now been appointed CEO of leading financial technology company Cinnober.

Veronica Augustsson began her career at Cinnober, the Swedish-based technology provider, over ten years ago and has since held a number of key positions within the company. She has now been promoted from her role as Head of Sales, in which she played a major role in securing prestigious orders from the Dubai Gold & Commodities Exchange and LME Clear in recent months. Over the years, she has also been a member of the senior management team and has served operationally on a number of business projects.

"I'm delighted that Veronica has accepted this position as CEO of Cinnober. Despite a tricky market, we as a company have been doing well and she's the right type of leader to take us further on this exciting journey," says Nils-Robert Persson, Executive Chairman of the company. "Her extensive experience of the sector, along with her technical expertise, is a great asset. I am convinced that having Veronica in this position is an excellent way to strengthen the successful team we have built since the inception of the company."

During her years at Cinnober, Veronica has gained broad financial experience. After starting as a developer, she was soon posted to provide on-site support to the American Stock Exchange in New York. She also contributed to development projects and technical sales support for the TRADExpress platform. She holds a Master's Degree in computer engineering from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm.

"This is a tremendous and exciting challenge and I am very proud to have been asked to step into this role," says Veronica. "I am well acquainted with our business and have a professional team of competent employees around me. This creative environment and the inspiring niche in which we operate have strengthened my resolve in accepting the job. Today, Cinnober is well-positioned to meet customers' current needs and now is the time to take further steps to grow and achieve new successes alongside existing and new customers."

Veronica assumes her new position immediately, replacing outgoing CEO Javier Tordable, who is leaving after six months. Cinnober and Tordable have agreed to amicably terminate Tordable's contract due to management discrepancies.
