Confluence, a provider of automated data management solutions for the investment management industry, has appointed Hugh Byrne as managing director of sales.
Based in London, Byrne will be responsible for setting Confluence's strategic sales direction in Europe and continuing to drive growth throughout the region.
“Hugh brings a wealth of valuable experience positioning high-value complex solutions to deliver business value to the asset management industry," says Todd Moyer, senior vice president of global sales, who leads Confluence’s international expansion efforts. "His extensive knowledge of investment management operations will be invaluable to our clients as they look to solve increasingly complex global data management and regulatory challenges."
Byrne brings more than 25 years of financial services technology experience to his new role. Prior to joining Confluence, Byrne held positions at Thomson Financial, Cognotec Systems and Allied Irish Bank. Most recently, he served as senior vice president of the asset management division at Sungard Data Systems.
“I was drawn to Confluence by its innovative solutions offering and its position as a global leader in data-driven reporting and automation technology,” Byrne says. “Asset managers across Europe are challenged to meet increasingly heightened regulatory demands while growing their business with greater scale and efficiency. Confluence’s unique range of solutions are ideally placed to enable asset managers and asset servicers to achieve these goals of operational efficiency, regulatory compliance and data-enabled growth. I look forward to helping expand the firm's presence across the region.”
