OpenFin appoints TP ICAP alumnus as chief digital officer

New executive brings considerable experience to OpenFin, having previously served at TP ICAP, Liquidnet and Goldman Sachs.

Operating system for enterprise productivity, OpenFin, has strengthened its executive leadership team with the appointment of Vicky Sanders as chief digital officer.

As part of the role, Sanders will drive digital transformation across OpenFin’s ecosystem of buy- and sell-side institutions as well as the global vendor community.

Sanders joins from TP ICAP Group’s agency execution division where she served as chief commercial officer, responsible for the commercial strategy of Liquidnet and Coex Partners businesses.

Before that, she co-founded fintech RSRCHXchange, leading the business through its 2019 acquisition by Liquidnet.

“Vicky will work closely with financial institutions to improve employee empowerment, productivity, and interconnected experiences.”

During her tenure at Liquidnet, Sanders operated as head of investment analytics, where she developed a new division and product which provided insights to buy-side traders and portfolio managers, before Liquidnet’s acquisition by TP ICAP.

Earlier in her career, Sanders served as an executive director at Goldman Sachs and as an associate at Merrill Lynch.

“With a track record of solving complex workflow challenges, OpenFin’s ecosystem has grown to include 23 of the 25 global banks, leading asset managers and large and innovative software vendors,” said Sanders.

“I’m excited to join at a time of strong momentum and look forward to working with such a talented team to unlock the power of OpenFin’s network while shaping digital transformation across the industry and beyond.”

Sanders’ appointment follows a $10 million investment won by OpenFin from ING Ventures last month, which will be used to accelerate the expansion of OpenFin OS throughout the financial industry.

ING Ventures joined Bain Capital Ventures, CME Ventures, HSBC, JP Morgan and Wells Fargo Strategic Capital, among others, which have all shown support for OpenFin’s enterprise operating system.  

“Vicky will work closely with financial institutions to improve employee empowerment, productivity, and interconnected experiences,” said Adam Toms, chief operating officer at OpenFin.

“This is more important than ever as organisations need to ensure that their teams work smarter, faster, and collaborate more effectively.”
