Omgeo, a provider of post-trade, pre-settlement trade management services, announced yesterday that Timothy Keady was promoted to managing director, global sales and relationship management. He has also joined Omgeo’s executive team. Lee Cutrone, managing director of industry relations, will now also oversee Omgeo’s global marketing function. Martin Brennan takes on the new role of managing director, business development for the Asia-Pacific and Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) regions. All three gentlemen report to Marianne Brown, president and chief executive officer.
Tim Keady’s promotion from executive director, global sales to managing director, global sales and relationship management comes as a result of his proven track record for exceeding sales targets, driving growth in the US and bringing world-class practices to his team. He will oversee regional teams to ensure alignment between Omgeo solutions and client needs, as well as continue revenue growth.
“The recent leadership changes at Omgeo are a direct reflection not only of our past successes, but the future strength of our business,” says Ms. Brown. “Tim’s stellar performance both last year and over his entire tenure at Omgeo has been a major contributing factor to our growth. I’m confident he’ll bring those successes to the executive team as he becomes even more closely involved with our overall strategic process. Tim’s winning track record will no doubt positively impact the future success of Omgeo.”
Previously, Mr. Keady was director of sales for the Americas region. Prior to Omgeo, he was an account executive at Thomson Financial ESG. Mr. Keady has also held sales positions at Fidelity Investments Institutional Services Co. and Keystone Mutual Funds. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in political science from Northeastern University.
In addition to Lee Cutrone’s leadership position within industry relations, his marketing duties will allow Omgeo to more closely align communications to and relationships with global client and industry groups as well as regional advisory boards.
“Lee’s role in industry relations has always been closely aligned with the work of the marketing team,” continues Ms. Brown. “With a more formal joining of these two functions, we mark our commitment to Omgeo’s continued focus on our client and industry communities. Lee’s leadership from Omgeo’s inception has been instrumental in our positive position within the industry, and his profound dedication to our marketing vision will only further our success,” she adds.
Previously, Mr. Cutrone held a similar industry relations position at Thomson Financial ESG. Prior to that position, he was senior vice president of the securities division at the American Stock Exchange (AMEX), having held several executive positions there. He also held positions at Stone & Webster Securities Corporation and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith, Inc. Mr. Cutrone holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in economics from St. Francis College, Brooklyn, NY and an MBA in finance from Pace University, New York, NY.
Martin Brennan’s new role strengthens Omgeo’s commitment to Asian and European growth and leverages his stellar past performance as well as abundant experience, relationships and expertise in these markets. He will focus his efforts to support and influence Omgeo’s market presence and accelerate growth in both regions.
A key component of Mr. Brennan’s new role will be to actively partner with the sales and relationship management function, as well as the market growth function to assist in identifying new areas of growth. Additionally, he will support the industry relations function’s ongoing efforts to increase Omgeo’s profile among key client and industry groups throughout the region.
“Martin has done a truly outstanding job leading sales and marketing in the past, and with Europe and Asia ripe for growth, his industry experience means he’ll be an invaluable asset to us in his new role,” Ms. Brown concludes. “He is a true asset to our organisation, and his new role will allow him to follow his passion for translating critical relationships into strategic growth decisions for Omgeo.”
