encompass corporation (“encompass”), the only provider of simultaneous, real-time access to multiple sources of global company and person data, is experiencing increased interest in its automation solutions from East and South East Asia in response to more stringent Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements across the region.

With particularly strong demand coming from Hong Kong, China, Singapore and Japan, encompass is expanding its existing Asia-Pacific presence by launching operations in Hong Kong so that it can support this growth and further develop local partnerships.

Alex Oxford has been appointed Head of Sales for Asia to lead the sales drive in the region. He is based in Hong Kong and reports directly to Paul Charmatz, Managing Director.

Alex has worked at a number of organisations across the Asia-Pacific region within the business technology and data industry and has also served as an Advisor to organisations that specialise in identity management. Alex was recently elected to the board of the Australian Chamber of Commerce Hong Kong & Macau (“AustCham Hong Kong & Macau”), becoming the youngest ever board member.

Commenting on Alex’s appointment, Paul Charmatz, Managing Director Global Sales at encompass, said: “Across Asia, governments are focused on strengthening and enforcing regulation to ensure the region's central position in the global financial system. Regulated firms are now seeking to address the increasing burden of performing KYC by using automation to dramatically improve efficiency whilst ensuring compliance to bank policies. encompass leads the field in this. We are delighted that Alex has joined us to lead our continued growth in the region.”

Alex Oxford, newly appointed Head of Sales, Asia, at encompass, said: “I am passionate about driving uptake of robotic automation to speed up and drive efficiencies in the KYC process for banks across the region. The compliance technology market in Asia is growing at pace as banks seek to balance regulatory burden with a frictionless customer experience. I look forward to helping the team at encompass capitalise on the opportunities here with a solution that drives collaboration and delivers a robust system built upon leading technology.”
