Facctum, the risktech company specialising in cloud-delivered enterprise risk decisioning technology, has today announced its launch into the EU market to satisfy the increasing demand for its services, with the creation of an entity in Ireland and the appointment of Nicolas Willard as its newest Director of Business Development. 

These two developments are further milestones for the company’s growth journey after Facctum’s successful launch in the UK market. Facctum’s new Irish entity will expand its customer service across the twenty-seven Member States of the European Union, with Willard enabling its work to promote and progress the business in this region alongside fellow Business Development Director Jörg Herzhoff. 

Building on its customer base in the UK, the company will now have an established presence in Ireland to provide more businesses with new screening technology for financial crime risk management. With Facctum’s technology, users can leverage cloud-first enterprise-grade risk detection tools and screening technology for sanctions and crime risk management with an immediate compliance response to risk.

Willard joins Facctum with over 30 years’ experience within the payments and sanctions space. Prior to his role at Facctum, he worked at Neterium as its Senior Business Development Manager. Alongside this he has held several positions throughout the years at SWIFT. During this time with this organisation, he was Head of AML and Sanctions Solutions for EMEA, appointed Head of Small and Medium Business (SMB), and then most recently became an Agile coach for SWIFT. 

The news follows the announcement of Facctum’s most recent appointments, including Jörg Herzhoff as Director of Business Development and Grant Marshall as a Senior Consultant. With this further investment, Facctum is committed to its strategic expansion across Europe, and additional markets.

 KK Gupta, CEO at Facctum said: 

“Being as close as possible to our customers and providing the best possible services, is a core Facctum strategy and our new presence in Ireland and continued investment in talent in Europe shows our commitment to our customers across the EU. We are seeing increased need across financial services for better and quicker screening and risk technology to meet the rising compliance demands. We are delighted to be able to bring our risktech solutions to organisations across the EU, with Nicolas leveraging his breath of skills and leading our EMEA team to help clients meet the ever-growing compliance demands effectively and efficiently.” 

Nicolas Willard Director of Business Development, EMEA at Facctum said:   

“The world is changing at an accelerated rate, with regulations and technology changing just as fast. With such high-speed movement, there is a high demand for compliance and risk technology that can keep up. With such possibilities, I am excited to be joining Facctum as it continues its growth and looks to bring leading risktech to a wider customer base across the European Union. There is plenty of opportunity and I look forward to being part of Facctum’s journey and future success.”
