New York-based grid computing vendor DataSynapse has appointed Helga Kaminski to the newly created position of regional director for Central Europe.
Based in London, Kaminski will focus primarily on business development for Germany, Austria and Switzerland and will report into Willy Ross, MD, Emea.
Kaminski joined DataSynapse in 2002 from FX systems vendor Integral Development, where she held a senior sales post for Northern Europe. Prior to this she worked at Misys and Dresdner Bank.
Since establishing the company’s Emea headquarters in London in April 2002, DataSynapse has built an impressive customer list in the region. In 2004 the company added seven new firms to its client base which now includes two major Swiss banks, three of the top four German banks, two of the top three UK banks, three out of the top four French capital markets trading operations, and two of the top Italian banks.
Last month DataSynapse appointed Tim Carley, formerly of Calypso Technology, as director of sales for Southern Europe to support the firm's aggressive new business development drive in France, Italy, Spain and Belgium.
