GoldenSource, the leading independent provider of enterprise data management (EDM) solutions for the securities and investment industry, announced today the appointment of John H. Eley to the position of CEO.
The organization also announced that EDM pioneer Mike Meriton has been appointed to the position of Vice Chairman.
Expanding the company's leadership team enables GoldenSource to maintain and grow its position as the leading EDM vendor globally, while simultaneously shaping the future of EDM delivery models such as shared service utilities.
Eley will assume responsibility for all aspects of GoldenSource's business. Meriton, in his role of Vice Chairman, will be a driving force behind enabling GoldenSource to capitalize on long-term strategic growth opportunities, including powering shared service global data utilities, strategic partnerships, and alternate sales channels.
"It is exciting to join GoldenSource at this transformational time in the EDM marketplace," said Eley. "GoldenSource is unique in its ability to power both financial institutions and shared utilities with an integrated 360 EDM solution combining instrument, entity, and transaction data on a single platform, bringing quality and transparency into the data supply chain. I look forward to leading the company in its next phase of growth."
Eley has successfully grown and run multiple financial technology businesses, serving as President and CEO of Pivot, Inc., and of Hotspot FX. Eley brings 25 years of capital markets experience to GoldenSource.
Meriton has been at the forefront of the EDM industry for the last decade and previously served as CEO of GoldenSource. He co-founded the EDM Council in 2005. In 2013, Meriton led the industry in practical deployment of the FIBO (Financial Industry Business Ontology) semantic standard, by making GoldenSource the first global EDM solution provider to adopt open FIBO standards.
Meriton said, "GoldenSource has led the way as EDM emerged as an area of major focus for financial institutions in all segments of the industry and in all areas of the world. The company is now accelerating to take advantage of new strategic partnership opportunities in this growing market. I am pleased to help position GoldenSource to lead mass adoption of EDM as the market dramatically expands."
