Bravura Solutions Pty Limited (Bravura) has announced an expanded role for the current global Director of Strategy, Darren Stevens.
Stevens, who joined Bravura in 2007 and is based in Melbourne, has been appointed Director, Product Management and Strategy for global wealth management.
In addition to his previous strategy role, he will be responsible for the global strategic direction and product management of Bravura’s wealth management suite, including wrap and platform, investment, superannuation, life insurance and portfolio administration products.
Stevens will be managing a global team spanning the APAC and EMEA regions. He will continue to report directly to Bravura’s global Chief Executive Officer, Tony Klim.
Klim said: “We are delighted that Darren has agreed to expand his role at Bravura. His deep product and industry knowledge, coupled with more than 26 years of industry experience – including his previous strategy role – make him the perfect fit for this newly created position.
“With 12 contracted Sonata engagements underway and another two close to contract completion, we are seeing rapid market acceptance and adoption of our software throughout APAC and EMEA, across multiple business lines. This growth has been the catalyst for Bravura to ensure global coordination and prioritisation of individual client Sonata development, alongside company funded R&D.”
Commenting on his new role, Stevens remarked: “I’m excited to expand my role and team at Bravura. A key focus area going forward will be to ensure our products and solutions closely align not only with our corporate strategy, but also – more importantly – with the needs of our client base, the market / industry direction and future innovation.”
Stevens officially commenced the role in August 2014.
