Gresham Technologies plc has appointed Dan Kennedy as senior vice president of sales in North America.

Based in the FinTech’s New York office, he will be responsible for all business development, sales, account management and partnering activities in the region.

Kennedy spent seven years at Corvil – acquired by Pico – as managing director and head of sales in the Americas. That firm is focused on real-time data analytics, cloud, cybersecurity and managed service solutions for financial markets. 

Most recently, he was chief revenue officer at AI and machine learning firm Devron.

“Gresham has built an enviable reputation in the North American financial markets as a trusted partner solving critical industry problems,” said Kennedy. “I see significant opportunities in the region to deliver quantifiable value to new customers. 

“I am impressed with the team’s passion and am confident that we will play a large part in Gresham’s continued success by helping customers overcome the challenges of their complex operations and by enabling data integrity, cost reduction and automation initiatives.”

“Our business has grown significantly in North America since winning our first customer in 2015. We now have more than 150 customers in banking and investment management supported by a team of over 60 people on the ground. 

“There is a significant opportunity to deepen customer relationships and accelerate growth in the market.”
