Macrobond appoints North America Business Development Director
Macrobond Financial, a provider of economic and financial data and analytics, has appointed Larry Neiman as Director of Business Development, effective 1 November.
Neiman, who will be based in New York, will be responsible for growing Macrobond’s business in the US and managing strategic customer relationships in the region.
Neiman joins Macrobond after 21 years at Haver Analytics, a provider of financial and economic data and analytic tools, where he most recently served as regional account manager based in New York. He holds an MBA in Economics and Finance from New York University’s Stern School of Business and a BS in Economics & Political Science from James Madison University in Virginia, US.
Neiman says: “I am thrilled to be joining Macrobond at such an exciting time for the business, where I have the opportunity to play a part in its continued expansion across geographies and teams. I was attracted to working with Macrobond because it is not just committed to supplying the most comprehensive macroeconomic data sets, but is also committed to solving many workflow problems that the industry is well aware of, such as collaboration solutions that financial firms and their dispersed teams increasingly demand. I was also impressed by their future road map which includes forward thinking analytics that the industry is crying out for.”
Howard Rees, Chief Commercial Officer at Macrobond, adds: “We have seen very strong growth recently with well over 100 new clients in the last 12 months opting to use the Macrobond solution. Larry’s hire is part of our strategy to invest in our presence in the US and capitalise on the growing demand from firms in the region. Larry brings with him invaluable relevant experience and we are confident that our US clients will benefit from his expertise and insights.”
