Gresham, the major software and services company that specialises in providing real-time transaction control and enterprise data integrity solutions, has strengthened its business development team with two senior appointments in New York. Jan Dinger joins to lead the North American sales operation and John Burchenal to build and lead a global alliances programme. The new appointments build on the recent strategic new wins in North America, as well as capitalizing on the fast-growing reputation of the company’s Clareti platform within the financial technology industry.
Bill Blythe, Global Business Development, Gresham says, “We’re delighted to welcome Jan Dinger and John Burchenal to the team. They bring with them a wealth of experience that will help us realise our global ambitions in the FinTech space. The North America market presents significant opportunity for Gresham, with strong demand for newer more agile technologies as financial services firms come under increasing regulatory pressure to get their data under control. We are also seeing strong interest from other industry solution providers to partner with us, and forming the right strategic alliances and relationships will be important for the company in the future.”
Dinger brings 15 years’ financial technology sales experience and joins Gresham from Advent Software who offer portfolio management, STP and trade order management solutions to investment management firms. During his 10 years at Advent he worked in EMEA and in the US, where he has been for the last three years, leading the strategic accounts team in New York.
Burchenal joins from ICAP, where for the last five years he has been running the strategic partner programme for the Traiana business, developing relationships with market infrastructure providers. Prior to that he spent six years at Omgeo, the Thomson Financial/DTCC joint venture, as managing director of strategic growth. John brings a wealth of alliances, sales and financial markets experience to a newly created global role.
