AlphaDesk the cloud-based software provider to hedge funds and other asset managers, has signaled its intention to fund accelerated growth by hiring former SunGard (now FIS) Executive Vice-President, Kevin Galliers, as Chief Operating Officer.
CEO, Dan Rissin, explains, “Kevin is a seasoned professional with an exceptional track record. He has a deep understanding of clients’ financial technology needs, acquired through decades of experience working for successful software vendors. We are very fortunate to have him on our team, and we are looking forward to taking the firm to the next level. AlphaDesk is a proven, managed solution that is functionally rich, quickly deployed, scale-able, and responsive to changing business models. With Kevin’s appointment we now have the international expertise to transform AlphaDesk into a truly global operation.”
Kevin Galliers, COO, observes, “It is rare to discover a well-kept secret in financial technology, one that has anticipated cloud-deployment and the need for a single front-to-back solution for fund managers, delivered at an unbeatable price point. Every AlphaDesk customer benefits from a single upgrade path, managed by 24 hour AlphaDesk support. Gone are the days of expensive IT operations; now managers can focus fully on maximizing performance and being responsive to the changing market landscape.”
Galliers continues, “Over the coming weeks we will be firming up our plans and making further announcements about how we will support our growing international customer-base, how we work with industry partners and how we will take a leadership position in setting a vision, as a service provider, for the industry. I am both excited and honored to be invited onto the board of AlphaDesk.”
