ISITC Europe, the industry group dedicated to improving the operational efficiency of the global financial industry, has today announced that Martin Gwinnutt, Freelance Finance IT Consultant and non-executive Director of DBFS has joined the leadership group. This coincides with the re-election of David Ewings, Senior Manager Distribution Special Projects at Threadneedle Asset Management, as a member of the ISITC Europe leadership team.
Both Gwinnutt and Ewings have contributed to the success of ISITC Europe over recent years by being involved in marketing and collaboration activities respectively. Their continued involvement with the organisation comes at a time when membership is growing, and the needs of its members are ever increasing.
Graeme Austin, chief executive of ISITC Europe, said: “Both Martin and David have been invaluable in helping re-engage ISITC Europe with its community. They have made a significant contribution to our recent rise in membership and I look forward to working more closely with them both. With the new team, we can make crisper decisions as we move the trade association forward, building on the strong foundation built by the previous group.”
ISITC Europe speaks for the whole industry, including broker/dealers, custodians, investment managers as well as vendors and utilities. Its mission is to develop standards and market practices that will enhance efficiency across the transaction life cycle.
