Bankable is pleased to welcome Chris Tribelhorn as Head of Special Projects, reporting to Bankable COO Richo Strydom.
Chris is a seasoned financial technology executive who brings with him more than 20 years of technology and investment banking experience and expertise, having specialised in derivatives products and trading / regulatory risk management.
Chris most recently served as Managing Director, Global Head of Derivatives and Risk Technology at Credit Suisse where he led a global organisation of 700 staff across 6 cities delivering derivatives, risk and P&L technology solutions across the Credit, Rates, and Equities asset classes. In this role, he shaped the technology strategy for these key areas of the investment bank, helping govern the sizable change investment and manage the operational risk.
Prior to Credit Suisse, Chris held several senior technology leadership roles at Deutsche Bank AG, where he worked for 10 years. Initially joining to help build out their Structured Credit Derivatives franchise, he later formed a single risk management technology function spanning the wider investment banking division where he formed a strategy unifying the quantitative analytic libraries and risk management platforms.
Prior to Deutsche Bank, Chris was an alumni of Valtech Ltd (a global leading-edge technology consultancy co-founded by Bankable’s founder and CEO, Eric Mouilleron) where Chris held the role of Principal Consultant. Chris played a major role at Valtech leading some of the key project delivery engagements that they had at the time initially with EDS, and also T-Mobile and UBS.
Chris’s impressive track record and professional working partnership with Bankable’s founder Eric and its COO Richo will be monumental to Bankable.
“Richo joined as Bankable COO in January 2017. He was Bankable’s first ‘boomerang’, meaning someone I have recruited in the past. Chris is our second boomerang, coming back 15 years later to accelerate global strategic initiatives and scale teams globally. It is a pleasure to be working with him again. As Bankable continues to expand rapidly, his contribution will be integral to Bankable’s future success. Other boomerangs will follow…” said Eric.
Chris quoted: “I am very excited to play a pivotal part in this vibrant and dynamic team helping strengthen and grow our Bankable platform. I appreciate that the role is very hands-on and delivers key features and capabilities directly to our current and future clients. And its quite refreshing to be working so closely with Eric and Richo again after so many years!”, said Chris.
As Head of Special Projects, Chris will be responsible for driving some key initiatives that will help Bankable meet the diverse requirements of its targeted industry verticals. His initial focus will be on building out our foreign-exchange trading capabilities and to design a new interface for our clients to interact with our world-leading payments platform
