"I'm pleased to be given the opportunity to drive forward a world class organization that is a market leader in financial analytics," says O'Hanlon. "Building on the success we have had in fixed income, I look forward to seizing new market opportunities in areas such as credit risk and risk management."
"This is an exciting time for NumeriX. We are pulling together a highly experienced team of people that will really help us to drive growth," says Dr. Whitten, Chairman and CEO at NumeriX. "O'Hanlon has a solid track record of both building and turning around technology companies. He possesses the requisite management and leadership skills to quickly identify the eminent business issues and his ability to engage top-level business and technology clients and partners will guide us to further success in this competitive marketplace."
