Global fintech firm, Gresham Technologies (Gresham), has appointed Marc Binck as Head of Cloud Services to accelerate the firm’s cloud strategy across global markets.
In his new role, Marc will be responsible for the continuous delivery and integration of cloud services across the entire Clareti platform of data reconciliation, cash management and payments solutions.
Previously Director of Operations, Cash Management, Marc has been instrumental in developing Clareti’s multi-banking connectivity arm over the last two years. He will now focus on cloud migration to enable Clareti users to classify, authenticate and reconcile a diverse and complex range of data types in the cloud in real-time.
Catalysed by remote working environments and a renewed regulatory focus on cloud adoption in recent years, demand for agility and delivery-at-pace, scalability for business growth and 24/7 access is rising among banks, asset managers and capital markets firms.
Marc comments: “Market volatility caused by the COVID-19 crisis means firms are now facing unimagined volumes of data on a daily basis. Gresham’s public cloud offering provides the elasticity of scale required to navigate these challenges, so our existing and future customers can focus on what matters most; growing their businesses.”
Neil Vernon, Chief Technology Officer, adds: “It’s essential that we continue to provide access to cutting edge technology as well as unrivalled market expertise for our customers. Gresham’s public cloud offering enables us to help firms across the cloud maturity spectrum, from those looking to migrate away from legacy technology onto existing cloud providers or to our own public cloud – and do so 100% securely and remotely. Our approach to cloud means we’ve been able to onboard our customers virtually, without meeting teams face-to-face – a crucial element of the new normal we now operate in.”
The announcement comes off the back of a tier one bank contract win for the firm and successful FY2019 results, in which it reported a 30% increase in Group revenues to £25m and twelve new Clareti wins in 2019.
