As we continue to increase the level of integration between the two sides of the business, we will seek to enrich the customer experience by adding value, insight and innovation to all of our solutions.”
Fidessa's global buy-side CEO Paul Nokes added, “Robert brings a wealth of experience from almost 17 years in the Fidessa group covering project management, account management and operations.”
