Dublin-based Eontec has appointed two senior banking executives to key positions within its management team.

The company, which provides Java-based multi-channel retail banking software, has named Martin Purdy, formerly of Bank of Ireland, as executive vice president (EVP) business development and former Agricultural Credit Corporation staffer Alex Keane as chief operating officer (COO).

As EVP in charge of business development, Purdy will be responsible for all sales and marketing activity and the development of strategic partnerships, in particular with the systems integrator community, worldwide. "Partners are key to Eontec's success," says Purdy. "By engaging with strategic partners we can better deliver the comprehensive, scalable and extensible products that customers require."

A fellow of the Irish Computer Society, Purdy joins Eontec from Bank of Ireland Group where he worked for nine years as head of IT and later as head of operations within the organisation's Life Assurance subsidiary, Lifetime Assurance. He has held responsibility for the development of Bank of Ireland's information infrastructure and the implementation of CRM, database marketing, affinity and worksite marketing programmes. Prior to this, he worked for nine years at Andersen Consulting in Ireland, UK, Norway and USA, specialising in strategic IT planning and large-scale implementation in retail financial services and for the public sector.

As the new COO, Alex Keane will lead the development and support of BankFrame, Eontec's flagship solution for retail banks. He will also be responsible for the deployment and delivery of solutions to client banks in association with Eontec's systems integration partners such as IBM, Sun Microsystems and BEA.

Keane joins Eontec after 11 years with ACCBank, where he held the positions of systems development manager, general manager of strategic development and most recently, general manager of IT and operations.
