ITRS Group, the leading global provider of real-time predictive operational systems management products for the world's financial community, has today named Joanne Kinsella managing director of ITRS America.
This appointment is part of ITRS's aggressive growth strategy and follows the appointments made earlier this year of Kevin Covington as managing director of ITRS Europe and Keith Waterton as chief operating officer.
Kinsella has an impressive track record of achievement in the global financial technology sector. Prior to joining ITRS she held a number of high profile positions in financial services and IT, most recently as head of portfolio at BT Global Financial Services where she was responsible for the Radianz portfolio, trading systems, unified communications, collaboration and post trade messaging. Kinsella has a depth of knowledge and understanding of the concerns and requirements of global financial institutions across the sector. She has recently successfully lead and delivered global projects focused on resolving low-latency challenges.
Says Kinsella: "ITRS is experiencing unprecedented growth in demand for its products so it is an exciting time to be joining. A significant opportunity exists here in the Americas to build on our impressive customer base and grow the business through driving new relationships with banks, exchanges, hedge funds and execution venues. ITRS has a huge potential for growth as financial institutions look to implement real-time proactive systems management, improve their operational productivity and reduce risk. I know that with over a decade of specialist expertise ITRS is a clear leader in this market and I am thrilled to be part of the team that will take the business forward."
"Joanne's experience is a real asset and will enable her to make a significant contribution to our expansion plans and also benefit our client base in America. Joanne has a clear understanding of ITRS's growth strategy and I am very pleased to welcome her on board," says Stephen Bates, ITRS CEO.
At the same time Rajiv Bala Subramanian, previously CEO ITRS America, takes on the role of managing director of global alliancees. Partnerships and third party relationships have always been important for ITRS and with the rapid growth of the company these are becoming even more vital. Bala will be responsible for developing the alliances, channel marketing, distribution and third party relationships which will play a key part in the company's expansion.
Bala comments: "With connectivity to more that 100 trading, portfolio and risk related products and vendors our partners are becoming increasingly keen to embed our product capabilities into their offerings to enhance their value. These new alliances will play an important role in our continued growth."
Stephen Bates adds: "Having worked with Rajiv for a number of years I know he will bring energy, drive and focus to what is an increasingly important part of ITRS's business. With the recent additions to the ITRS board and the outstanding results announced earlier this month I believe we now have the best mix of talent, expertise and market position to achieve our goals."
