eVestment continues to execute on its successful European expansion strategies with the addition of Gabriel Gilarranz as Vice President of Business Development in the company’s London office.
“Bringing seasoned business development executives like Gabriel to our team is an important step in continuing our European and international growth,” said Christophe Frerebeau, eVestment’s head of Europe, Middle East and Africa operations. “Gabriel’s experience and contacts in the financial services and data industries will be crucial to our continued growth in this region of the world.”
Gilarranz will initially focus on asset managers in the United Kingdom and brings a wealth of financial industry experience to eVestment.

I look forward to exposing more firms to our company’s solutions.”
