ANALEC North America has appointed Richard Marcus as head of sales in North America. He will report to ANALEC CEO Indy Sarker.
ANALEC is a leading financial technology company providing a comprehensive suite of products for the buy- and sell-side enhancing transparency, efficiency and increased productivity within the investment research and client servicing functions. The firm has users of its product suites in the US, Europe, and Asia.
Marcus brings a wealth of software enterprise sales expertise and experience, and will, (through ANALEC’s ResearchWise and ClientManager software) enable banks and brokerages to increase productivity and reduce costs. These goals are critical for sell side firms as they face increased regulatory and competitive constrains in research – even as research output continues to be in demand.
Prior to joining ANALEC Marcus held a series of business development positions of increasing responsibility over his career. He has worked in a variety of areas, all sales related: SaaS content Management at Integritie; regional sales management at Advantage Enterprises (with a focus on financial services); enterprise sales at Document Conversion Associates; and imaging solutions at e-copy. He was also in Corporate Account Management at IKON. He graduated from Baruch College, CUNY.
Sarker says: “As the challenges of monetisation and cost efficiency of research continue to play out globally, ANALEC provides firms with a comprehensive suite of solutions that address the problems of publishing, distribution and client management. North America remains a key market in this evolving environment and Richard brings the skill set to expand our business in this key region.”
Marcus says: “ANALEC’s growth has proven its value to clients over the last decade. The opportunity to grow the franchise in North America will serve not only our interests but will provide genuine solutions and choice to clients and the industry.”
