CJC, the leading independent market data consultancy, today announced its appointment of Peter Williams as director of operations for Emea.
This is a new position, created through CJC's accelerated growth, with CJC's business and headcount increasing by 25% over the last 12 months. Williams has been with CJC for four years, as a market data consultant.
Williams will be responsible for the operational management of the 40-strong EMEA team, which consists of market data engineers, consultants and project managers. He will be reinforcing CJC's EMEA growth strategy, through the management of standards, processes, training and development, and overall account management. Williams has twelve years of experience in market data, and has previously worked in-house in broking and investment banking environments, including BNP Paribas and Credit Suisse.
Paul Gow, CEO of CJC said: "Selecting Peter for this position was an easy choice to make - he has displayed consistent loyalty to CJC over the years and is constantly striving for improvement and excellence in the company's processes and procedures. The growth and direction of CJC has resulted in the necessity for regional operations directors, who will streamline and reinforce their teams to provide outstanding client service and support. Peter's knowledge, enthusiasm and hard work have made him an integral part of the company, and I look forward to the contributions he will make as director of operations for EMEA."
Based in the London office, he will be reporting directly to the company directors: Paul Gow, David Renton and Paul Tomblin. Williams will be mirroring the position of Steve Moreton, who was announced as director of operations for APAC in March.
Peter Williams commented: "When I first joined CJC, I was excited to be a part of a company with such high standards of technical ability, and a strong sense of direction. Now, I am delighted to have this opportunity to push CJC forward, continue to grow our business, and to build on the high quality standards already in place."
