Quorsus, providers of consultancy services to financial institutions, has announced the appointment of former Markit executive, Jeff Gooch as its first non-executive director. In this position, having joined in September, Jeff will provide strategic insight into business planning, financial governance, and management decision making.

Simon Rees-Goddard, Chief Friend Maker and Co-Founder, Quorsus, said: “Despite these strange times, we have seen huge demand for our services in post trade operations and technology expertise since we began operating at the start of the year. Jeff has a wealth of knowledge from his senior management positions at world-renowned, blue chip companies, and we feel privileged that we can tap into his extensive experience and knowledge. His independent and objective perspective will undoubtedly help propel us on our upward trajectory.”

Jeff has over 30 years’ experience in the financial services industry and has spent his career building and scaling up businesses, particularly in the financial technology space. Starting at Ernst & Young where he led the financial management consulting team for financial services for eight years, Jeff then served as Managing Director at Morgan Stanley for 10 years. Following this, Jeff spent nine years as an Executive Committee member at Markit, including serving as CEO and Chairman of MarkitSERV and most recently as Group CFO before retiring.
 
Jeff Gooch said: “I’m very selective with my time, and so I need to really believe in the companies I choose to work with. I know and respect the Quorsus team from past lives and this combined with my passion for helping businesses grow, made this an offer I just could not refuse.  Quorsus already hold a highly respected market position and I am look forward to playing a part in the company’s future successes.”
