Regulatory reporting startup appoints European sales head from NEX Group

RegTek.Solutions bolsters sales team with new hires from NEX Group and SmartStream Technologies.

Regulatory reporting software provider RegTek.Solutions has appointed a new head of sales for Europe from NEX Group.  

Tom Morris was previously head of regulatory reporting solutions at NEX Group, overseeing business development of the company’s MiFID II, EMIR and SFTR services.

Prior to that, Morris worked at MarketAxess as head of sales and relationship management for post-trade solutions, with 20 years’ experience in post-trade trade sales working at other firms, such as the London Stock Exchange, Markit and UBS.

RegTek.Solutions, established in 2017 and backed by Deutsche Börse’s DB1 ventures division, offers financial institutions reporting software to meet regulatory obligations.

Alongside Morris, the firm has also hired Rob McGowan as head of sales for North America from SmartStream Technologies, where he was senior vice president for sales across all aspects of the transaction lifecycle.

McGowan also has 20 years’ experience working at financial technology firms including Duco, Infogix, and Ericmom Software.

“They each bring extensive experience of working in high-growth financial technology firms in our core markets”, said Brian Lynch, CEO of RegTek.Solutions.  

“[Morris and McGowan’s] domain knowledge, sales experience and contacts will help fuel our further growth and I’m confident that they will each play a significant role in helping us achieve our strategic ambitions.”
