Kevin Cullen has been appointed to the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA) industry leadership committee, covering the corporate actions section in the operations and technology unit.
Based out of the New York office of the technology vendor, Information Mosaic, Kevin Cullen is an experienced corporate actions and financial markets technology professional. He also serves on the board of the International Securities Association for Institutional Trade Communication (ISITC), an industry trade group that focuses on standards in transaction processing and related communications. Cullen is the co-executive sponsor of ISITC’s corporate actions working group and it is expected that he will be able to bring both organisations closer together in the future.
“I am genuinely pleased to have been asked to participate on the [SIFMA] industry leadership committee,” said Cullen. “SIFMA’s corporate actions section consistently provides value to its members, especially through its educational seminars on key industry issues. The committee is comprised of highly qualified and motivated individuals from some of the most prestigious firms in the financial industry.”
SIFMA brings together the shared interests of hundreds of securities firms, banks and asset managers in the US. Its corporate actions section of the operations and technology society unit is specifically focused on education and the sharing of best practices in the corporate actions, proxy, and settlement sectors of the financial services industry. It meets several times throughout the year at various events in the US, including its annual educational seminar.
“SIFMA is pleased to welcome Kevin to our committee,” said Jim Monahan, president of SIFMA’s corporate actions section. “His extensive background in corporate actions through Information Mosaic, as well the work he has done with ISITC, will provide immediate value. We also hope to build on the synergies between the two financial industry organisations.”
