VoxSmart Ltd., a global leader in communications surveillance, has announced the appointment of former BNP Paribas executive Larry List as Head of North America, and former Traiana executive Scott Feldman as SVP of Operations to drive growth in North America.
With over four decades of combined industry experience, both Larry's and Scott’s diverse background in business operations, regulatory change, and product management will support North American firms with VoxSmart’s end-to-end SaaS surveillance technology to address key compliance and supervisory challenges, driven by the need to monitor employee conduct from any location.
Larry’s professional background also includes a combined seven years at Commerzbank and Deutsche Bank. He joins VoxSmart most recently from BNP Paribas where he was the Global Markets Americas Chief Conduct and Controls Officer, and CAO Fixed Income during his eight years with the company.
Scott spent the last 16 years at Traiana, a subsidiary of the CME Group, where he was a Senior Director of Product Management and Business Development. He was a key contributor to the growth and success of Traiana from FinTech startup through acquisition. In addition, Scott had a stint at PWC, working with clients such as Goldman Sachs, Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers.
Oliver Blower, CEO of VoxSmart: “Following the recent investment from Toscafund, we are strengthening our North American team and continuing to work with market professionals to shape our product development and innovation. Both Larry and Scott bring invaluable experience in building businesses and developing technology solutions for risk management and business analytics, which makes them ideally placed to support and broaden our customer reach in America.”
Larry List, EVP Sales and Business Development, Head of North America, VoxSmart: “The industry is at a key inflection point for surveillance and supervision which is marking how leaders are managing the new dimensions of risks and threats posed by new working environments. There has never been a better time to join a forward-thinking company like VoxSmart and I am excited to be working closely with the team to support the next stage of growth across the Americas.”
Scott Feldman, SVP of Operations, North America, VoxSmart: “At a time where surveillance technology is in such high demand, this is an excellent opportunity to work with a global and industry acknowledged company with pioneering products. My focus will be to develop even more sophisticated and interoperable solutions to meet and excel our clients’ needs and expectations.”
These appointments mark the continued growth of VoxSmart following an announcement in March regarding a $25 million growth equity investment from Toscafund, designed to support further expansion and growth into North America and the emerging markets.
