FIS Software, a leading global provider of complete package-based software solutions for life and pensions organisations, announces four senior sales appointments/promotions to significantly strengthen its sales management team to enable the company to respond to increased demand from the life, pensions and investments markets.

Shay Alon, CEO of FIS Software, says: “As a result of our continuing success, building and strengthening the sales management team is critical to service our growing customer base. Each team member brings unique experience in financial services to enable FIS to lead the market in policy administration systems for life, pensions and investments.

“I am delighted to congratulate Damon on his promotion and welcome Nigel, Colin and Angus to FIS and I look forward to our continued team success.”

Damon Watkins, Global Sales Director

Previously Business Development Director for AMP, Damon joined FIS in August 2003 as Commonwealth Sales Director responsible for managing sales throughout the territory, including the UK, South Africa and Australia. In light of continuing strong revenue growth and the increasing geographic reach of the business, he was recently appointed Global Sales Director. In this role he is responsible for leading the sales team globally in achieving the sales and revenue targets for the business. Damon has already been instrumental in a number of successful policy administration deals for FIS including Scottish Widows and Axa.

Nigel Gardner, Regional Sales Director-UK

Nigel brings considerable experience to FIS, arriving with an impressive reputation in the sales and delivery of services and solutions to the life and non-life sectors in the UK. He held senior sales positions with Keane, LogicaCMG, IBM and Aqera, leading to the successful delivery of solutions within major insurance clients in the UK such as Zurich Financial Services, Royal London, Standard Life, Royal Sun Alliance and Norwich Union.

Colin Burton, Regional Sales Director-UK

With broad experience in the sales and delivery of application packages to the life and non-life sectors, Colin has held senior sales positions with SunGard and The Innovation Group leading to the successful delivery of solutions to both tier 1 and tier 2 accounts throughout Europe and South Africa. During his career Colin has held international assignments in Canada, Asia and Eastern Europe when he was resident in Poland for two years.

Angus Johnston, Sales Director, Asia-Pacific

Based in FIS’ office in Sydney, Australia, Angus is responsible for all Asia-Pacific sales and for the development of new business opportunities in the region. He has been involved in the financial services software industry for the past 14 years, most recently with SunGard as Head of Sales, Asia-Pacific for their listed derivatives back office solution suite.
