Matrix, a leading solution provider to asset owners and managers is delighted to announce that David Hassell has joined the firm to drive business development activities in EMEA.
Reporting to Matrix CEO, Neil Lotter, he brings deep domain expertise, a unique understanding of the specialist needs of Matrix target customers and a wide-ranging network in the buyside community.
David’s impressive sales career spans 30 years, with some 20 years of this time spent specifically focussed on the asset management community. He was most recently with FIS, having joined Monis in 1998, where he was responsible for selling and marketing convertible bond analytics, data and portfolio management systems. After six successful years, Monis was acquired by FIS, formerly SunGard. David was then appointed as Head of AI Sales in EMEA and in 2011 he was promoted to Senior Sales Manager with responsibility for developing the asset management business.
David commented. “Asset Management is my sweet spot and whilst digital transformation is taking hold across the financial services industry, the essence of business remains the same. Our goal is to provide our customers with platforms that empower them to automate their processes, realise efficiencies and in turn enable them to make better investment decisions based on clean, validated data. The much needed ‘look through’ capabilities provided by Matrix IDMS are exceptional and I can really see the value our unique offering delivers to its users. I am excited to be helping establish our name in the EMEA region.”
Neil Lotter, CEO at Matrix said. “These are exciting times for Matrix. We recently announced two major client signings and there is a real sense of momentum. I am delighted to welcome David to the team and look forward to him leading our business development efforts in EMEA.”
