Lombard Risk Management plc (LSE: LRM), a leading provider of integrated regulatory compliance, collateral management and reporting solutions for the financial services industry, has appointed Thomas Chevalier as Business Development Manager for France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Spain, Portugal and Greece.
The newly created role will see Thomas building the client base for both the COLLINE® collateral management software and the AgileREPORTER® regulatory compliance systems.
Thomas joins from S&P Capital IQ where he was Sales Manager for EMEA and played a leading role in launching the company’s Portfolio Risk business in Europe. He has also worked for Algorithmics as Regional Manager for Southern Europe and Murex as Sales Executive.
Alastair Brown, Lombard Risk’s Chief Executive Officer comments: “Highly complex regulatory requirements which mean financial services firms must demonstrate clear compliance trails, as well as the numerous challenges associated with collateral management across multiple jurisdictions, are driving strong growth across our European business.”
“As such, we are delighted that Thomas has joined us at this time of rapid development for the business. He has an excellent track record in business development and has worked extensively in the financial technology sector.”
Thomas Chevalier, Business Development Manager for France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Spain, Portugal and Greece comments: “Lombard Risk is driving innovation within the financial reporting market and we are already seeing strong interest from banks, asset managers and other financial services providers in Southern Europe, France and Belgium and Luxembourg.
“The complexity and scale of financial regulation shows no sign of abating and as businesses increase their international footprint, managing and monitoring risk across all areas is a vital but huge task. Lombard Risk is constantly evolving its solutions to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing regulatory landscape and I look forward to working with the team to further grow the business.”
