As Sales Executive, Wooders has responsibility for new sales opportunities with a number of major accounts in New York, as well as for all new business on the West Coast, in Canada and Chicago.
Since joining Wilco in 1995 Wooders has held a number of senior business analysis roles, working on numerous system implementations for institutional and retail securities operations in Europe, North America and Asia.
During a 15 month period based in New York as Head of Business Analysis, Wooders worked on a number of implementations and customer take-ons for the US and Canadian domestic and international bureau services offered jointly by Wilco and its parent company ADP Inc.

Subsequently Wooders spent 10 months as lead business analyst in Wilco's Tokyo office working on a successful client implementation of Gloss serving the Japanese domestic market, before returning to London to assist a global retail brokerage start-up.
In December 2000, Wooders moved into an account/project management role, leading a team that successfully instituted Wilco's new fast-track implementation methodology, STP Direct, in support of a new Wilco Service Bureau client.
Speaking about Wooders' move to the sales position in New York, Bob Santangelo, Wilco's Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing in New York said: "Our US operation has seen sustained, rapid growth over the last five years. Despite market concerns following the tragedy of September 11th, we remain confident about business prospects, and this has been justified so far by the receipt of three firm commitments from new customers subsequent to September 11th."
He continued: "We need someone to help realize the business opportunities present in the US and Canada and I am very excited that Tom Wooders has returned to New York to take on this role. He brings tremendous business knowledge of the US domestic and international markets, combined with in-depth experience of working with customers to match business requirements with our various systems’ functionality."
