Taskize welcomes ex-Beeks Group executive Alan Samuel as Head of Sales
LONDON, 03rd November 2022 – Taskize, the leading provider of inter-company workflow to the financial services industry, has announced the hire of ex-Beeks Group executive Alan Samuel as Head of Sales.
Based in London, Samuel brings over three decades worth of experience in market infrastructure, with roles spanning across major financial institutions including stints at interdealer brokerage giants TP ICAP and BGC Partners, where he focused on the management of e-FX institutional sales. Most recently, Samuel held the role of chief sales officer of LSE listed low-latency cloud provider Beek’s Group. Prior to this, he was an account director at Equinix.
The new hire builds on the rapid growth of Taskize’s client network in 2022. Operating across 85 countries, over 500 financial institutions are now live on the company’s network, almost double the 289 companies in January last year. The growth of the network has been driven by the wave of new regulations such as the Settlement Discipline Regime of the Central Securities Depository Regulation (CSDR) and the Uncleared Margin Rules (UMR), along with industry initiatives such as T+1 settlement. In his new role, Samuel will be responsible for continuing to drive the growth Taskize has seen globally this year.
Commenting on the new hire, Philip Slavin, CEO of Taskize, said: “Alan’s background dovetails perfectly with our sales strategy. As more market participants look for solutions that facilitate faster and more efficient resolution of settlement breaks and margin disputes, Alan’s industry experience makes him ideally placed to help drive our continued expansion.”
Samuel added: “Taskize is leading the way in post-trade issue resolution for the financial services industry. Its inter-company workflow platform is trusted by many of the world’s top 20 financial organisations. As an innovator in the field of post-trade financial technology, I’m excited to join the Taskize leadership team and be a part of the next phase of their growth story.”
