Robin Wiessmann’s in-depth experience in Lumesis’ marketplace and Michael Vossler’s successful career in financial services technology will support the company’s continued growth
Lumesis, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), cloud-based financial technology company dedicated to delivering software solutions and comprehensive, timely data to the fixed income marketplace, has added two key members to its team. Robin Wiessmann joins the Lumesis Board of Directors, and Michael Vossler has been named Managing Director, Business Development. Both Robin and Mike add another layer of expertise to the Lumesis team as it works to provide market participants with opportune and actionable information about the traditionally opaque municipal fixed income marketplace.
Robin brings more than 30 years of experience as an investment banker, asset manager, entrepreneur, and government leader. She has served as State Treasurer of Pennsylvania, as a municipal investment banker with Goldman Sachs, and as founding principal and president of investment banking firm Artemis Capital Group. Currently, Robin is Chairman of the Vantagepoint Funds Mutual Fund, a 40 Act mutual fund company with $13 billion under management. In addition, she was recently elected to the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB). Robin’s role as a leader of large public and private institutions has enabled her to combine business development with financial regulatory expertise and sound governance principles to achieve more efficient operations. These singular credentials will enable Robin to guide Lumesis in the governance of the company as well as offer insight into strategic and market directions.
“Robin’s extensive background in the financial services world and intimate knowledge of the municipal market make her an essential new addition to our board,” said Gregg Bienstock, Co-founder and CEO at Lumesis. “Beyond her familiarity with our industry, she brings rock solid credentials in building and growing businesses in the financial services world. Her mix of private and public sector experience make her a true asset and resource as Lumesis addresses the need for more-timely, substantive information for municipal market participants. We’re privileged to have her join our board.”
Mike Vossler has spent more than 20 years serving in various roles within the software solutions business for capital markets trading, operations, and enterprise risk. He most recently worked as a Senior Vice President at SunGard, overseeing sales and distribution for three divisions, including Adaptiv, Front Arena, and Sierra. He also served on the Senior Management team of each group. Prior to his management role, Mike was a top sales executive for SunGard, selling risk and trading solutions to banks, asset managers, broker/dealers, insurance companies, and breaking new ground for the company in the hedge fund and energy sectors.
“Mike brings extensive and well-rounded experience that will help us propel Lumesis forward,” said Tim Stevens, Co-Founder, President and COO at Lumesis. “His expertise on the sales and business development side, coupled with his focus on financial services clients and their needs, provide Lumesis a unique perspective as we continue to enhance and bring to market our suite of DIVER products. Mike’s strong grounding in sales, financial services and fin-tech make him a formidable talent to have in our corner. We’re incredibly fortunate to welcome Mike to the Lumesis team.”
