GBST has appointed Bryan Beeston to accelerate UK business development. Reporting to David Simpson, Head of EMEA at GBST, and working closely with the executive team, Bryan will be responsible for driving new client sales within the region.
Bryan has 30 years’ financial services sector experience in sales, business development and leadership roles, having worked with wealth managers, life companies and pension providers throughout the UK. Before joining GBST, he spent six years at Dunstan Thomas as Business Development Director, where he was responsible for new client acquisition and supporting product innovation. Prior to that, he was CEO of Informed Decisions (previously Legacy Asset Systems Ltd) for seven years, providing technology and administration services to retail financial services intermediaries.
David Simpson, Head of EMEA at GBST, comments: “Over the last two years we have significantly transformed the underlying technology stack of Composer, our wealth management administration platform. We’ve created a market-leading, cloud-based solution, which offers exceptional user experience and built additional functionality to improve operational efficiency, support scale, and drive automation for our clients and their customers.
“With his strong track record in both business development within financial services and working with innovative technology, Bryan will play a key role in supporting our current pipeline of opportunities and bringing our award winning solutions to an expanding customer base.”
Bryan added: “I’m looking forward to supporting the company’s continued growth. GBST is well known and trusted in the wealth management sector both in the UK and globally for its robust Composer back-office platform. Its recent and continued investment in modernising that technology, alongside its range of digital offerings, creates a compelling solution, not only for wealth managers, but for the broader financial services industry as well.”
