NEX Optimisation, a NEX Group business which helps clients reduce complexity and optimise resources across the transaction lifecycle, announces today that Per Sjöberg, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of TriOptima, has decided to leave the business to pursue other ventures.
Michael Spencer, CEO of NEX Group, said: "We thank Per for all of his contributions since founding TriOptima in 2000. Per saw TriOptima grow from its roots in Stockholm when it was a seed of an idea, to a market leading, global business. I am disappointed that he has decided to step down but he leaves the business in a strong position on which we continue to grow for the future. I am grateful for his contribution to TriOptima’s success and wish him all the best going forward."
Stuart Connolly will replace Per as CEO of TriOptima, subject to approval by Sweden’s Financial Supervisory Authority. Stuart joined NEX Optimisation as Head of Client Product Development in November 2016. Since joining, Stuart has been working on the development of interoperable data services across all NEX Optimisation businesses. Prior to joining NEX, Stuart spent 18 years at Goldman Sachs where he held a number of leadership positions, most recently as Managing Director of the Securities division and Head of EMEA Derivatives Clearing Services.
Jenny Knott, CEO of NEX Optimisation, said: “Per is one of the great innovators in financial services having co-founded TriOptima in 2000. It is with regret that he has decided to leave TriOptima but we respect his decision and are pleased that he will continue to provide advisory services to us. We thank Per for his unparalleled contribution to TriOptima over these past years and to NEX Group as a whole, and wish him every success for the future.
“Stuart Connolly brings great regulatory expertise to his new role as CEO of TriOptima. Stuart has strong knowledge of TriOptima having been a customer for many years while he was at Goldman Sachs and has a proven track record of relationship management skills and strategic thinking. I know that Stuart will successfully take TriOptima to the next level of its growth and I look forward to working with him in his new role.”
