GoldenSource Corporation, a global software provider of Enterprise Data Management (EDM) solutions for financial and securities institutions worldwide, today announced the appointment of Neill Vanlint as Senior Vice President of Client Operations EMEA & Asia. The restructuring forms part of the company’s strategy to support global business growth with particular focus on the emerging European and Asian financial markets.
Reporting to Mark Zill Senior Vice President of Global Client Operations, Vanlint’s professional services role has now been expanded to include management of client operations throughout EMEA and Asia. This change enables GoldenSource to quickly respond to the unique market and cultural issues within each territory, with a focus on customer service.
Vanlint, a senior GoldenSource manager for 20 years whose experience spans the US, Asia and Europe, says this organizational restructuring reflects the maturation of the company’s regional operations. “Over the past two years we have experienced strong business growth throughout Europe with our EMEA client operations doubling in size. We are also seeing a lot of demand for EDM solutions in Asia. Although EDM is a global trend, we recognize that local business drivers and market pressures differ somewhat to those experienced by financial firms in the US. GoldenSource now has the capability to offer a localized focus in all client facing areas which positions us perfectly to respond to these challenges.”
With the anticipated growth in market opportunities across Europe and Asia, GoldenSource expects to continue expanding its resources in these regions. Most recently it appointed Paul Ashcroft to the role of Sales Executive for Scandinavia, Austria & Eastern Europe.
Ashcroft brings to GoldenSource more that 35 years in the financial services industry holding such roles as sales support, business analyst, dealer and back office manager. Prior to joining GoldenSource Ashcroft was the Scandinavian representative for SunGard selling to corporates and before that, the Northern and Eastern Europe sales representative for Wall Street Systems.
