IRESS managing director for Canada Glenn Wilson will return to the firm’s London office to head up wealth and trading.
Financial software firm IRESS has announced a number of leadership changes to its global business, including the relocation of Canada managing director Glenn Wilson to the UK.
Mr Wilson will move to London to lead wealth and trading, and will be replaced by Canada executive vice president of business development Mike Lynds.
Mr Lynds will report to Mr Wilson, who will be reporting to UK managing director Simon Badley.
Additionally, Australia product group executive Aaron Knowles will be relocating to IRESS's office in the UK.
IRESS chief executive Andrew Walsh said, “The changes will ensure we build on our success to date and set up correctly to efficiently deliver on our goals of client desirability and growth.”
As part of the leadership changes, IRESS has removed the positions of financial markets group executive and chief operating officer, occupied by Matt Rady and Steve Barnes, respectively.
All changes are effective immediately and both will leave IRESS at the end of September this year.
“I thank Steve Barnes and Matt Rady for their service and commitment to IRESS,” Mr Walsh said.
“Both have shown dedication in their roles and I wish them all the best for the future.”
