US compliance management outfit Mathon Systems has appointed financial markets veteran and former Reuters CEO Peter Job to its advisory board.
Job served as chief executive officer at Reuters Group from 1991 until his retirement in July 2001.
He is currently a member of the supervisory board of Deutsche Bank, and a member of the boards of directors of Royal Dutch Shell, Instinet, Tibco Software and Schroders. He is also former chairman of Nasdaq's international advisory council.
Job is the second appointment to Mathon's advisory board since its formation in October 2006 and he joins Francis Remacle, former head of the securities industry division at Swift, who joined the board on October 2006.
Mathon, formed by CEO Angus McDonald - the technical founder of Tibco Software - and staffed by former senior Tibco staffers and financial industry veterans, produces technology for managing unstructured documents - such as spreadsheets, PDFs and e-mails - for compliance purposes.
The firm said last year that it was working with Google to integrate its flagship risk management technology, Mathon Integral, with the Internet search service.
