ITRS Group plc, the leading global provider of real-time proactive systems and application management products for the world's financial community, has appointed Thibaud Langlet as the new regional managing director for its Asia-Pacific operation.
Langlet will be based in Hong Kong and joins at a time of substantial change as the company implements the appropriate structural changes for the next phase of its global growth plan. So far this year ITRS has already announced the appointments of new regional managing directors for both Europe and North America and Langlet will complete the new management configuration.
Langlet has an impressive background within the global financial technology sector at senior level, in areas involving front office and mission critical technology and infrastructure. His international experience includes Asia Pacific, the Middle East, India and Europe. He was previously managing director at GL Trade for UK, Nordics and Middle East and has been managing director for South East Asia and India since 2001, where he initially focused on the building up and development of the Singapore branch. Thanks to the excellent results he achieved in terms of overall growth he moved to London to take charge of the largest business unit of the group. He has over 12 years' experience in business development in new territories and sales, primarily in front-office trading systems, market data and technical analysis solutions.
Commenting on his new position, Langlet said: "ITRS is a global leader and my appointment underlines the company's increased focus on the opportunities offered by the Asia Pacific market. I am pleased to be able to use my international experience to contribute to this strategy and I look forward to working with my team in Asia and with the whole of ITRS to drive further successes."
Stephen Bates, ITRS CEO, said: "The company is at a stage in its development where it is vital to have the best people in the right jobs and, with his experience and track record of success, Thibaud is ideally suited to take control in Asia. His knowledge and understanding of the region will be tremendous assets to both ITRS and our clients. Appointing Thibaud as head of ITRS Asia completes an impressive global management team and ideally positions the company for the next stage in our global expansion."
