Calastone, the global funds transaction network, has appointed James Colquhoun, former chief financial officer of AOL’s European operations, as its new chief financial officer.

Colquhoun joined AOL from branded video distribution company goviral, which was acquired by AOL in January 2011. He spent 18 months at goviral, building the finance division, and was part of the executive team who sold the business to AOL.
 
Prior to this Colquhoun held a number of senior finance positions in high growth international businesses, including group finance director at Mobile Streams, the AIM listed mobile content specialist, and Cinram, the largest producer of pre-recorded multimedia and related logistic services where he was European financial controller.
 
Colquhoun says: “I am thrilled to be part of the team at Calastone; this is a great business with impressive growth trajectories and exciting international expansion plans. I look forward to developing Calastone’s finance function, enabling the company’s growth and ensuring the global network continues to bring the right innovative solutions to the funds industry.” 
 
Julien Hammerson, chairman and chief executive of Calastone, says: “I am delighted with the appointment of James and pleased we have such a talented individual joining our team. He brings years of financial experience and valuable expertise to contribute to the company. James joins Calastone at a time when the business is evolving and expanding. We are listening to the market to ensure we continue to drive through our strategic goals and ambitions to directly match the needs of the funds industry. Recent appointments are intrinsically linked to that process.”
