Treasury veteran to spearhead OpenLink’s international initiative

London, October 3, 2001: OpenLink International, an industry leader in financial and energy trading and risk management software solutions, has appointed John Lister as Sales Manager for the Findur treasury system and suite of financial tools. The move is seen as another step in the growth of OpenLink’s international operation, and will further enhance their expanding financial arm.

Lister’s extensive treasury and trading experience is an ideal fit for OpenLink. Having started as a systems analyst for Shell UK and Control Data Group, he spent over twelve years trading currencies, swaps and derivatives before combining his technical and financial skills in treasury and risk product development and sales & marketing roles. During the course of his career he has worked for major international corporations such as Chase Manhattan and M. W. Marshalls; this latest move takes him from FNX Europe, where as Director of Business Development he was responsible for European Sales and Marketing for the Sierra treasury system suite and strategic partner alliances.

Findur is an advanced solutions set, the features of which were drawn from extensive client feedback, combined with a firm understanding of the fixed income, money markets, derivatives and foreign exchange markets. It gives clients a fully integrated front-through-back-office solution for trading and risk management.

On his appointment, Lister commented, "This is a tremendous opportunity to contribute to the growth of a world class company. The OpenLink Enterprise Platform, with the energy variant, Endur, and the financial variant, Findur, has already achieved worldwide client acceptance in both the energy and financial markets. It is my mandate to grow and to broaden the financial client base in Europe, a challenge I am looking forward to. The integral design, extendibility and risk functionality of Findur makes it uniquely placed to provide effective solutions to both the sell-side and to the buy-side of the European finance markets across all asset classes."

OpenLink International Managing Director Jean-Claude Riss said "John brings a wealth of experience in financial markets and software solutions to the job. This will enable him to communicate effectively with the end users we sell to, credibility being a key issue in this market. OpenLink is determined to increase our market share within the financial sector and John will be instrumental in helping us achieve this objective."
