To do this, we must leverage our 100% focus on delivering world class risk management solutions, our commitment to customer service and the expertise within our team.

Helen O'Dea's appointment to people and communications director will reinforce Misys' commitment to recruit, develop and retain the industry's best talent within the Banking and Securities division of Misys.
