Continuing on the growth path it has been following these last years, the BI-SAM group will communicate throughout 2012 about its ambitious 3 to 5 years strategic growth plan.
Strengthening its business position as the leading performance, attribution and reporting solution for the global asset management industry, this new plan includes various product offers, the coverage of new regions and the development of its organisation.
In this context, BI-SAM today announces a new Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) organisational structure placing its primary strategic focus in client services and business development in order to support BI-SAM’s accelerated global growth in this region.
The EMEA organisation will merge Paris, London and Luxembourg sales and client services teams with the focus of covering the Middle East region as well.
As part of this new organisation, Peter Ellis has been appointed Chief Operating Officer for EMEA. Based in London, he will oversee operations in the region.
“The impressive development of BI-SAM these last years has shown the group’s capacity to take up new challenges, while continuing to enhance and consolidate B-One’s position as the best performance, attribution and reporting solution on the market. I am very proud to be leading this new organisational structure which will reinforce our presence and client services in the region”, commented Peter.
With more than 25 years of experience gained in insurance, engineering, software development, and investment management, Peter has excellent knowledge of performance measurement and analysis. Prior to joining BI-SAM, he was Managing Director of Investit since 2004. He has also spent 8 years at Deutsche Asset Management, where he held a number of roles in IT and in the business. In his last role at Deutsche Asset Management, he was Managing Director, Performance and Client Services. Peter has extensive project management experience on a wide range of projects, and has directed many complex strategic projects, both from within IT as a project manager and as a business sponsor.
Highlighting the importance of this new strategic plan and the appointment of Peter Ellis, Alexandre Harkous, BI-SAM CEO, said: “I am delighted Peter is joining BI-SAM after a distinguished career in asset management, client services and consulting. His experience dealing with complex performance measurement projects is highly relevant to a global solution provider such as BI-SAM. I strongly believe that the new EMEA structure, amongst our other strategic projects in 2012, will support our growth and continue to improve our clients’ satisfaction."
