March 23, 2015
Confluence, a global leader in investment data management automation for regulatory, financial and investor reporting, continues its expansion in Europe with two new additions to its London office. Tom Pfister takes the position of Manager of EMEA Market Management and Nicola Le Brocq has been appointed as a Regulation and Compliance Market Analyst. These additions follow the recent appointment of Sal Pent to COO in the London office.
Tom Pfister is relocating from Confluence's Pittsburgh offices and brings extensive regulatory and product expertise that he will utilize to assess strategic objectives for the EMEA market and to evaluate market trends and analysis. He will be responsible for the implementation of a European wide market plan to achieve sales, operational and organizational goals. Tom joined Confluence in 2007 as Business Consultant and is a Certified Scrum Product Owner. He most recently served as Senior Product Owner for Confluence responsible for product strategy and overseeing product planning and execution.
Nicola Le Brocq joins Confluence from a regulatory consultancy background with 16 years of investment and funds services experience and a strong technical understanding of the US and European regulatory environments. She will oversee the regulatory market strategy for Confluence in EMEA by providing a global perspective and leadership for the development and execution of plans for translating regulatory requirements into workable strategies. Nicola is a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (FCSI) and a recipient of a CAIA Scholarship from the 100 Women in Hedge Funds organization.
Commenting on the appointments, Todd Moyer, Executive Vice President, Global Business Development, said "Europe is now one of the vital markets for our company and as we grow the business it has become necessary to have more staff present to strategically focus on solving the region's growing data management and automation challenges, especially as they relate to regulatory reporting. Tom and Nikki will be responsible for not only growing the business but helping to interact with regulators and other stakeholders in the market."
