Confluence, a provider of automated data management solutions for the investment management industry, has appointed Jimmy Harrington as a global sales account executive.
As part of the growing team in Europe, Harrington will be responsible for expanding Confluence’s global market presence there, particularly in the UK and Ireland.
“Jimmy brings an extensive track record of success in helping financial services companies leverage technology to solve the complex business problems inherent in today’s global economy,” says Todd Moyer, senior vice president of global sales, who leads Confluence’s international expansion efforts. “Jimmy will be a pivotal resource to asset managers and service providers in the UK and Ireland as they look to solve the tough data management challenges associated with regulatory issues like AIFMD and cross-border financial reporting.”
Harrington previously held business development positions with Thomson Reuters and Ulster Bank in Dublin and Fiserv in the New York City area. He most recently served as vice president of business development for Taxback.com, an entrepreneurial company specialising in online payment solutions for the K-12 and higher education market.
“The accelerated fund industry growth in Europe, increased regulatory scrutiny, and the need to operate more efficiently are creating new demand for data management and automation solutions,” Harringon says. “I am excited to join Confluence’s growing team on the ground in Europe, and I am looking forward to positioning Confluence as a strategic partner to solve these challenges.”
