CLS, a market infrastructure delivering settlement, processing and data solutions, has strengthened its product development and sales teams with the appointments of Angus Scott as Head of Product and Lisa Danino-Lewis as Head of Sales EMEA.
Following a year in which CLS announced it is developing a broader range of forward-looking solutions, Angus Scott will play a crucial role in delivering new products across three business lines - settlement, processing and data - and developing its ongoing product strategy. With over 20 years’ experience in financial services, Angus joins CLS from Euroclear where, as Head of Product Strategy and Innovation, he led the development and delivery of the organization’s product diversification strategy. He has previously worked for HSBC, where he was responsible for strategic changes in the Securities Services division, and at London Stock Exchange, where he held a senior role within the corporate strategy team. Angus will be based in London and lead the product teams in London and New York, reporting to Alan Marquard, Chief Strategy and Development Officer.
Lisa Danino-Lewis has more than a decade of experience in senior foreign exchange (FX) sales roles, including Head of FX eDistribution & Flow Sales, EMEA at BNP Paribas and Head of eFX Sales EMEA at HSBC. She joins CLS from Broadway Technology, where she was responsible for sales across Broadway’s FX, fixed income and regulatory solutions in EMEA. Lisa will be based in London and lead CLS’s EMEA sales team, reporting to Joe Ziccarelli, Head of Sales.
Alan Marquard, Chief Strategy and Development Officer at CLS, commented: “I am very pleased to welcome Angus and Lisa to our team and look forward to working with them. Their experience working within leading FX clients means they both have a deep understanding of the challenges facing market participants. Their insight will be invaluable in supporting the delivery of our growth strategy.
“This is an exciting time for CLS. We have a significant number of innovative, forward-looking solutions in development that will deliver greater efficiencies, further reduce risk and help our clients to stay at the forefront of a changing market.”
