Casey is looking forward to a close working relationship with the people of Mosaic Software. "I was very taken with the Mosaic team. They are a bright group with strong management, operating in a fascinating business," he says.
As chief executive of the LSE, Casey was responsible for implementing the strategy agreed by the board; for demutualising the exchange, enabling it to become a for-profit company; and for turning round the fortunes of the
Exchange over a period of four years. Before joining the LSE in 1996, Casey served as group finance director and later chief operating officer of Smith New Court plc, an international securities house based in London (acquired
by Merrill Lynch in 1995).
Willem van Biljon, Group CEO of Mosaic Software, says this is a strategic addition to the board. "Gavin’s experience and in-depth knowledge of the financial markets and European business environment in general will
be of huge benefit to Mosaic, and will complement the management team and the board".
Recently, Paul Maritz, ex-Microsoft executive, was also appointed to Mosaic Software’s board of directors.
