Dion Global Solutions (BSE: 526927), technology partner to the financial services industry, has appointed Stephen Mitchell to its European Sales Team. As Sales Executive, Stephen will help progress Dion's growth in the European market.
Stephen joins Dion from Avaloq where he was responsible for new business development in the wealth management and private banking sector. He brings more than twenty years expertise to the role having worked in business development and sales for financial services technology firms including Misys and Fiserv.
A specialist in wealth management, Stephen's background gives him an in-depth understanding of how technology can help market participants capitalise on the opportunities, and overcome the challenges, posed by today's investment environment.
"Better technology is essential to support firms' business models in the changing operating landscape," said Stephen. "Compliance and risk continue to be major considerations across the wealth management industry and this shows no sign of changing. The regulatory burden, through the likes of RDR, continues to drive the need for greater efficiency and transparency. I look forward to joining Dion at a time when technology can truly transform operations to ultimately help our clients and prospects grow their businesses."
Antony Bream, European Sales Director at Dion added: "Stephen brings significant expertise to Dion's global sales team. He truly understands the priorities facing financial institutions today. His skills will allow us to expand the reach of our solutions into new territories where Stephen has great experience."
