AQMetrics Strengthens Executive Team With Sales, Regulatory Reporting Appointments

Jan 26 2017 | 11:57pm ET

Integrated risk management and regulatory compliance specialist AQMetrics has enhanced its global leadership team with the addition of two financial industry experts, Ryan Kipp and Cathal Connolly. 

Kipp joins the firm as head of sales - Americas and will lead the firm’s continued geographic expansion of its sales team and partners throughout the Americas, building on the company’s focused growth in the region. He will be based in the U.S.

Prior to joining AQMetrics, Kipp served as global head of sales at financial technology company Cachematrix. Beforehand, he was director of client coverage within the global corporate & investment banking division of Bank of America Merrill Lynch. 

Connolly, meanwhile, brings more than thirteen years of regulatory expertise to his new role of head of global regulatory reporting. Prior to joining AQMetrics, he was global regulatory reporting director for State Street and previously senior roles at Citco. He will be based in Ireland.

The two executives come aboard AQMetrics shortly after the company’s rollout of a series of enhancements to its cloud-based platform aimed at helping buy-side and sell-side clients prepare for MiFID II ahead of the January 2018 deadline.

“Ryan and Cathal each bring a level of expertise and breadth of experience that is difficult to match across the financial and regulatory space,” said Geraldine Gibson, CEO of AQMetrics, in a statement. “As the needs of our expanding client base evolve, we’re committed to growing our team to help clients around the globe better meet the challenges of today’s shifting regulatory landscape.”

Founded in 2012 and headquartered in Ireland, AQMetrics provides regulatory risk and compliance solutions for financial professionals. The company was the subject of a FINtech Focus article on FINalternatives in September 2016.
