Posted by Colin Lambert. Last updated: August 17, 2022
Operating system technology provider OpenFin has named Vicky Sanders as its chief digital officer, a newly-created role.
In what the firm calls a “strategic decision”, Sanders is tasked with driving digital transformation across the company’s ecosystem. It follows last month’s $10 million investment in the firm by ING Ventures.
She joins from TP Icap, where she spent the past year as chief commercial officer for its agency execution business that was acquired with the purchase of Liquidnet. Sanders worked for 20 months at Liquidnet prior to the deal, as global head of investment analytics. She joined Liquidnet when that firm acquired RSRCHXchange, where she was co-counder and co-CEO for over five years.
“OpenFin has a strong history of building with the industry and for the industry,” says Adam Toms, chief operating officer at OpenFin. “This ranges from the creation of the FDC3 application interoperability standards to the launch of Workspace in 2021, which was designed and built in collaboration with several global banks and asset managers to solve their common workflow challenges. Today, Workspace accelerates standardisation and openness across the industry while solving desktop and employee productivity issues at an enterprise level.
“We are delighted to have hired Vicky who has such a proven track record of driving change,” he continues. “Vicky will work closely with financial institutions to improve employee empowerment, productivity, and interconnected experiences. This is more important than ever as organisations need to ensure that their teams work smarter, faster, and collaborate more effectively.”
Sanders adds, “OpenFin is a well-regarded fintech, underpinned by strong and trusted client relationships, innovative technology and an experienced team. 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. 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.”
