Leading RegTech company, AQMetrics, today announced it is growing its global leadership team with the addition of two financial industry experts, Ryan Kipp and Cathal Connolly.
Kipp joins as Head of Sales, Americas, based in the U.S., and Connolly will serve as Head of Global Regulatory Reporting, based in Ireland.
These latest hires reinforce the firm’s commitment to attracting industry-leading talent to support the growing adoption of its award-winning cloud-based RegTech platform.
“Ryan and Cathal each bring a level of expertise and breadth of experience that is difficult to match across the financial and regulatory space,” said Geraldine Gibson, CEO of AQMetrics. “As the needs of our expanding client base evolve, we’re committed to growing our team to help clients around the globe better meet the challenges of today’s shifting regulatory landscape.”
Kipp will lead the firm’s continued geographic expansion of its sales team and partners throughout the Americas, building on the company’s focused growth in the region. Prior to joining AQMetrics, Kipp served as Global Head of Sales at financial technology company, Cachematrix. Prior to Cachematrix, he was the Director of Client Coverage within the Global Corporate & Investment Banking division of Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
Connolly brings to his new role over thirteen years of regulatory expertise in senior roles at Citco and most recently State Street, where he served as Global Regulatory Reporting Director.
Kipp and Connolly join AQMetrics on the heels of the company’s rollout of a series of enhancements aimed at helping buy-side and sell-side clients prepare for MiFID II (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II) ahead of the January 2018 deadline.
