LONDON- 10 May 2004. Coexis, providers of Syn~ process-oriented and rules-based software across the whole spectrum of commercial banking has announced the appointment of Donal O’Brien as director of business development.

Coexis provides the industry with a distinctly better way of servicing clients. I am excited to have the opportunity to work with this team."
