Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:BR), a provider of investor communications and technology-driven solutions to financial services companies, has announced the addition of three senior executives to its London office, as the firm seeks to expand its support for global financial institutions in key market-centers across the globe.
The executives – Kimberly Jewell, Mike Thrower and Peter Morris – have decades of experience in banking and brokerage operations, client relationship management, sales and technology.
Kimberly Jewell has joined as managing director of global accounts and will support Broadridge’s tier-one global clients headquartered in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Prior to joining Broadridge, she served at SunGard. Ms Jewell spent nearly a decade in executive client-facing roles at major institutions, including JPMorgan Chase, Fidelity Investments and Banc of America Securities in London and San Francisco. She started her career as a trader and supervisor at E*TRADE Securities.
Mike Thrower has joined as Broadridge’s head of sales for EMEA responsible for leading a global team of sales executives with a focus on growing and developing relationships with existing and new clients across the capital markets, wealth and asset management segments, and for corporations. His expertise in the financial markets spans over 20 years, during which he was managing sales and marketing teams, was engaged in developing financial technology businesses in foreign exchange, rates, securities and derivatives across pre- and post-trade functions.
Mr Thrower joins Broadridge from Wall Street Systems, a provider of treasury, foreign exchange trade-processing and cross asset back-office services, where he was global head of sales and account management. Previously, he was global head of sales and marketing at Cognotec and head of trading and risk management systems at TSB Hill Samuel Bank.
Peter Morris has joined as head of revenue and expense management services for the global capital markets segment, and as general manager for revenue and expense management services in EMEA. He brings 30 years’ experience as an operations and technology executive. Mr Morris has served in senior executive roles overseeing international operations for Nomura Securities, Banc of America Securities, Lehman Brothers, Commerzbank and Cantor Fitzgerald.
“Never has there been a greater need among European and global financial institutions for technology and operations solutions that dramatically increase efficiencies,” said Tim Gokey, chief operating officer at Broadridge. “By adding executive talent to the region, we are reinforcing our ability to help multi-national clients transform and innovate to strengthen their performance in this rapidly changing market environment.”
Broadridge handles more than $5 trillion in daily settlements, conducts equities processing for six of the 10 largest global investment banks, and processes securities in more than 70 markets globally.
