Finantix, provider of technology to wealth management, has appointed Christine Ciriani as its new CEO.
She will take on the role alongside her current position of chief commercial officer.
Ciriani formerly held senior leadership roles at Capco, Detica and JPMorgan.
Ralf Emmerich will step down as CEO and take the role of executive chairman and oversee the Finantix board.
Ciriani said: “I am delighted to take up this leadership position at Finantix. With an award-winning product offering, our innovative client-first culture and very strong R&D, sales, and delivery teams, we are well positioned to capitalise on the investments made since Motive Partners acquired an interest in the company.
“My new role as CEO will see me continue to work with our talented team to drive the next phase of our growth, and to ensure that both our integrated and point solutions are rapidly adopted in the market to deliver the data-enabled, digitally-connected, and content-rich services today’s clients demand.”
Emmerich added: “When we founded Finantix, we set out to build a firm that would continually innovate leading-edge, robust and enterprise-grade technology products for the financial services industry. Under Christine’s leadership and working with our management team, we have successfully accelerated the process of expanding our extensive portfolio of innovative products, we have grown the Finantix global footprint, and we have added and will continue to add capabilities that will maintain our position as the leading global provider of trusted technology to the wealth management, insurance and banking industries.
“Now is the ideal time for me to hand over the reins to Christine so she can continue to build on the strong foundations we have created. This will in turn allow me to focus even more on the overall product strategy as part of our ambitious organic and inorganic growth plan. I wish Christine every success and am delighted to continue to work alongside her as we write the next chapter in the Finantix success story.”
