Corlytics, the world leader in regulatory risk intelligence, has announced the appointment of Severine Melis-Cooper as the new director of EMEA sales.
Severine will oversee Corlytics’ sales organisation and is responsible for driving the company’s growth as the global leader in regulatory risk intelligence in the EMEA market. She has over 15 years’ experience in the fintech sector in Europe, with a very strong track record of overachieving sales target and opening new markets.
Severine joins from Fidelity National Information Services (FIS) where she held the role of EMEA head of utility sales. She was formerly at SmartSteam Technologies as global head of sales in fees and billing solutions, and previously at RiskMetrics (now MSCI Risk solutions) where she set up and headed the French office for several years.
Severine comments, “Corlytics was an obvious choice for my next career move. I have been following the European and North American RegTech sectors for the past couple of years and have noticed Corlytics standing out clearly amongst many players. I was drawn to Corlytics because of its unique positioning within the regtech market, a very impressive team and an ability to draw key industry names into their community.
“This is an exciting opportunity to be part of. Helping support regulated firms, regulators and professional services executives in identifying, assessing and mitigating risk through regulatory risk intelligence”.
John Byrne, CEO of Corlytics said, "Over the past six months, Corlytics has been expanding rapidly internationally on that back of some exciting customer engagement. Now is a great time for Severine to join the sales team, heading up our activities across EMEA. Severine’s background in fintech, banking and sales means I am confident she will flourish at Corlytics”.
