As CTO, Mr. Vickers will be responsible for all technical aspects of the software solutions developed by FNX.

He is ideally suited to steer the technical direction of FNX's product suite into the future." Mr. Naib continued: "He brings not only the knowledge we require in a CTO, but also a highly procedural, process-oriented mindset that should strengthen all aspects of the technology development infrastructure at FNX. If we want to maintain our position as a premier provider of sophisticated global financial services solutions, we must continually strive to improve our product suite. I am confident that Andrew is the individual we need in place to lead this effort."
