Misys, the leading provider of software solutions for the financial services industry, has appointed Chris Curtis as its new regional sales director for Asia Pacific. He will oversee new business development and client relationships across the Asia region.
Chris brings more than 18 years of industry experience to Misys, ten of which were in Oracle's Financial Services Business. Most recently, he was Oracle's Vice-President of the Banking Global Business team, responsible for the Go-to-Market strategy and sales of the firm's banking applications.
Frank Brienzi, President and Chief Sales Officer, Misys, said, "We are excited about Chris' arrival and believe that, under his leadership, we will be able to strengthen our Asia Pacific business and enable our vision for long-term growth. We serve more than 500 banks and financial institutions in Asia and have seen significant growth in demand for Misys solutions in the region, particularly in the areas of regulatory compliance and risk management, improving trading operations and lending capabilities.
Chris Curtis commented on his appointment, "I look forward to combining my industry knowledge with the 30-plus years of expertise Misys has gained in Asia to lead the regional team and meet our customers' evolving needs with high quality and innovative products."
Chris will build on Misys' successful business in Asia Pacific from its regional headquarters in Singapore. Misys operates 17 offices in Asia, including three development centres. Approximately a third of the firm's new clients signed in the past year are Asia-based.
