Houston - 21 September 2010

Global consulting firm adds European leadership and strengthens expertise in Commodities, Energy and Risk.

Sirius Solutions, L.L.L.P. (Sirius Solutions) today announced further growth by adding the Credit Risk Practice from Coherence Consulting and strengthened their market presence with the addition of Aviv Handler and Charlotte Wales to their European headquarters. Commenting on the expansion, Kristi Chickering, CEO Sirius Solutions, said, "Our level of commitment to the European market and our clients is reinforced by this investment. All of our consultants are excited to be part of a truly international company, and are looking forward to the opportunity of providing trusted, specialised advice combining local knowledge with global presence."

Aviv Handler has been appointed Managing Director of Sirius Europe, as well as Global Head of Credit. He brings with him the credit practice of Coherence Consulting, a provider of specialised consulting services to the global commodity and energy markets, focused on credit risk. His directive is to further expand Sirius' presence in Europe, initially in the areas of energy and commodity trading. He has spent the last five years building Coherence Consulting into a multi-practice service provider. Prior to Coherence he held a variety of senior positions in financial and energy trading technology, at organizations including Sungard, KWI, and Redshift International.

Aviv is joined at Sirius Solutions by Charlotte Wales, who will be working in business development at the European office. Charlotte has spent the last 10 years in the energy technology industry, holding business development positions in RAFT International (now Temenos) and the Rome Corporation (now Triplepoint).

Handler said, "I have seen the quality of Sirius' work first hand during joint projects at Coherence. The opportunity to extend the reach of Sirius' specialised and flexible approach to a larger number of clients is something that I and the rest of my team relish."
