OpenLink Financial, the global leader in Transaction Lifecycle Management (TLM) software, announced today that it has hired David Obstler as its new Chief Financial Officer.
Obstler will report to Dr. Mark N. Greene, CEO Designate, and oversee all finance functions and selected administrative functions, including business development, legal and human resources. As a member of OpenLink's Executive Leadership Team, Obstler will participate actively in the strategic planning and resource allocation initiatives for annual operating plans.
Obstler brings deep financial and analytical expertise that is directly relevant to OpenLink's offerings, having served previously as CFO of RiskMetrics Group and its subsequent acquirer, MSCI. He has extensive experience in helping those companies grow, both organically and through M&A activity, and he was instrumental in the RiskMetrics' Initial Public Offering.
Greene said, "David's insight and expertise will be crucial for the next phase of the OpenLink success story. He will be instrumental in scaling key aspects of our business. We welcome David and are excited about seeing his leadership positively impact OpenLink in many ways."
Obstler said of his new responsibilities, "I respect OpenLink's rich history of success, translating complex market variables into innovative solutions. The opportunity to work with such a skilled management team headed by Mark will be rewarding. I look forward to being a part of the coming chapters of this company's growth."
