GBST is pleased to announce the appointment of its new Chief Commercial Officer, Kirsty Worgan. Joining the executive team and reporting to global CEO Robert DeDominicis, Kirsty will contribute to delivering the organisation’s ambitious global growth strategy and lead the development and delivery of its wealth management commercial plans working closely with the CEO and Board.
Kirsty has worked in senior management and executive positions in financial services and fintech for three decades, including seven years at GBST previously as its Head of Business Development. Her former roles also include Director of Business Development EMEA at Bravura Solutions, where she was responsible for client acquisition in the UK and South Africa, and Chief Commercial Officer at Smart Pensions.
In her newly established role at GBST, Kirsty will manage commercial growth opportunities, mergers and acquisitions, and assist with sales and product expansion. She will support regionally based leaders to drive adoption of GBST’s market-leading and award-winning wealth management solutions, including back-office administration technology, Composer; tools and services for tax aware investing and intelligent reporting, TaxIntell and Tax Analyser; digital wealth platform, Catalyst; and a growing range of interactive financial tools and calculators.
Robert DeDominicis, CEO at GBST, comments: “Kirsty is well-known and highly regarded across the industry, and I am delighted to welcome her back to GBST. We are seeing increased interest globally in our wealth management solutions as providers seek to deploy a modern, cloud-based tech stack that delivers a superior client user journey and experience, while addressing increasing regulatory burdens and managing costs. Kirsty’s extensive experience will be invaluable in accelerating our organic and acquisitive expansion plans.”
Kirsty adds: “Having been part of the original team that helped establish GBST in the UK over a decade ago, I am excited to re-join the organisation. GBST has always been committed to continued technology innovation, but I have been particularly impressed by the significant investment and progress it has made in transforming its underlying product architecture over the last two years and by Anchorage’s ambition for the long-term future of the company.
“I’m looking forward to working with the GBST team globally to execute on its business plans and drive the continued commercial advancement and success of its operations.”
Kirsty commences her role this week.
