âIâm very excited about joining Cogent,â Mr. Smith said. âWhile everybody on Wall Street that pays or receives commissions has some kind of technology to help them manage it, not everyone is pleased. They are looking for new solutions to automate manual processes, with flexibility to change as their business changes. Cogentâs platforms have been tried, tested and perfected over the last four years. Today, Cogent is running 100 online solutions on behalf of 60 clients that manage a collective total of $5 trillion in assets.â
Robin Hodgkins, President and CEO of Cogent, said Mr. Smithâs more than a decade of experience selling and marketing technology products and services to Wall Street related companies will be a valuable addition to the Company. Mr. Smithâs previous experience includes senior sales and marketing positions with CecilRep, Kana Software (CRM solutions), and Greenwich Technology Partners (network infrastructure). Past clients range from insurance companies and brokerage/investment banking firms to institutional investors. Mr. Smith was graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Providence College.
