Aleri, a leading provider of real-time data analysis solutions based on complex event processing technology (CEP) for trading and risk, has hired a new general manager for North America, an additional European sales manager, a European principal consultant that specialises in financial risk management, and is currently continuing to expand in North America.
"Due to newly emerging rules around the management of trading and liquidity risk, which will require technology that enables more flexible, adaptive, and comprehensive analysis of risk, the most rapidly growing use of Aleri's CEP technology is for real-time risk management solutions," said Aleri's CEO, Don DeLoach. "Additionally, as the benefits of CEP technology have been revealed, we have witnessed a major increase in current customers expanding or making plans to expand their use of Aleri's CEP technology and solutions. Therefore, it's become necessary for us to expand our team."
Aleri brought on board Scott Jaffe as its new GM of North America to oversee all field operations including sales, services and channel relationships. Jaffe came to Aleri from MontaVista Software, where he was vice president of world wide sales business development and channels. Prior to MontaVista, Jaffe held vice president positions at companies including Dunn & Bradstreet and Sybase. Scott's strong business background and experience in company growth makes him well suited for scaling Aleri operations that drive company growth and taking advantage of the unique position Aleri has in the market place.
Philip Cooney was brought on board as a European sales manager to help increase Aleri's European footprint. Philip came to Aleri with more than 20 years of capital market experience in roles at Reuters, Sungard, BT Global Services and SAS.
Elke Biechele joined the Aleri Europe team as a principal consultant on Aleri's professional services team and will specialize in real-time risk management solutions.

Her experience with risk and product management makes her a strong addition to the team and will help Aleri expand the availability of its real-time risk management solutions at a critical time in the market.
