Exchange Data International (EDI), a leading provider of international securities administration and reference data, adds three to its London sales team to reinforce the continued growth of the company.
EDI is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. "The company has had very strong first quarter," says Kevin Brady, "We signed over 20 new customers in January and February alone. The business development team have set a very high standard with their dynamic approach to meeting and exceeding customer expectations and requirements. With the new additions to the group we can be confident of a continued aggressive growth strategy for EDI throughout 2004."
Rickie Glasgow and Andy Sabourin joined the company as business development managers on March 16th this year and are now managing existing global accounts as well as generating new business. Sigurd Jokumsen joined EDI in October 2003 with the primary responsibility of prospecting new business. They all report to Kevin Brady, director EDI.
Sabourin brings with him almost two decades of experience of working in the financial markets. He joins EDI from HSBC's Market Data Division, where he assisted the bank's move to its new headquarters in Canada Square, Canary Wharf. Prior to that he was a major accounts manager for tier 1 clients at Thomson Financial.
Glasgow comes to EDI from Reuters, where he was product manager for DataScope Portfolio and Global Pricing, while Jokumsen worked at 4cast with responsibility for new business in Germany and Scandinavia and Thomson Financial with responsibility for new business in equity research in Scandinavia.
The pricing systems and product development background of the new members of the sales team reflects EDI's renowned customised approach to product development and management, and its commitment to hiring staff who have comprehensive knowledge of the market.
EDI is also currently interviewing for a director for its New York operation in order to grow their market in North America.
