Chris Rowe has been appointed as Business Development Manager at Gold-i to help with the next phase of growth for the global market leader in trading systems integration. As a member of the Gold-i management team, Chris will report directly to Gold-i’s CEO, Tom Higgins.
Chris joins the rapidly growing Gold-i team with over 17 years’ experience in sales, primarily in the telecoms industry. He joins Gold-i from BT where he was a field sales specialist.
According to Tom Higgins, “We are delighted to welcome Chris on board. His strong commercial background and proven track record in business development make him an ideal candidate for this newly created role. He brings a wealth of ideas from outside the industry which will really help with our ambitious growth plans.”
Chris’ initial focus will be on reviewing Gold-i’s positioning, developing partnerships and identifying sales opportunities from existing clients and prospects. He will begin with a focus on Gold-i’s managed services, which enable brokers to operate efficiently with little or no in-house IT resource and infrastructure.
Chris Rowe adds, “This new role is a great opportunity for me. During my career in the telecoms industry, I particularly enjoyed working with Telefonix – a small, agile business in a dynamic industry offering market leading products. I see many parallels with Gold-i. Gold-i has a fantastic range of products and an exceptional team of technical specialists. I am looking forward to driving the business forward and playing a key role in the company’s global expansion.”
Gold-i’s product portfolio includes the award-winning Gold-i Gate Bridge, the Gold-i Gate Link post trade integration tool and over 20 risk management and execution tools (Gold-i Bolt-Ons). Gold-i products are highly scalable and will work with any asset class in retail and institutional trading, on a global basis.
