Valuelink, a leading provider of data validation services for the global investment management industry, today announced the appointment of David Simmonds as Head of Sales.
Mr Simmonds brings 20 years of experience in Financial Services to Valuelink with the majority of that spent in selling complex middle-to-back office applications and services to Investment Managers, Administrators and Brokerages. In his role at Valuelink David will be responsible for spearheading the company's strategic growth by identifying and maximising opportunities to deliver value to new and existing customers.
"Valuelink is a stand-out performer in the field of providing a service that enhances mission-critical processes," said Mr Simmonds.
