Eventus Systems, Inc., a multi-award winning global trade surveillance and risk management software platform provider, today announced that Vincent Turcotte has just joined the firm as Sales Director for the Asia Pacific (APAC) region, according to a press release. Turcotte will be operating out of Hong Kong and intends to focus initially on growing the firm’s client base in Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Australia and Singapore.
Reporting to Scott Schroeder, Eventus Global Head of Sales, Turcotte will play a key role in further building on the firm’s regional presence, which it established in Singapore in 2018. Eventus has also expanded its footprint in Europe this year; David Ririe and Matt Jefford are the latest hires there, each joining in September as Sales Director for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.
For the past four years, Turcotte has represented ICE in the marketing of its platforms in Hong Kong and Singapore, focused on its listed financial products, connectivity, technology and infrastructure. Previously he was Managing Director, Asia Pacific and Head of Futures & Options for Nomura International, beginning in 2011.
Commenting on the new role, Turcotte said: “As financial firms in Asia grow their market share within the global industry, they increasingly want to take more control over their destiny and become less reliant on their prime broker or clearing broker. Eventus can play an important role in helping them determine their own future, define their own risk management policies and take direct responsibility for client management through robust trade surveillance capabilities. I’m excited to introduce a host of new firms – including broker-dealers, FCMs, proprietary trading firms and exchanges – to the broad capabilities and flexibility of Validus in meeting their unique circumstances and regulatory requirements.”
Scott Schroeder added: “We see tremendous opportunity for growth in APAC, and Vince is ideally suited to help us achieve that goal. He has extensive, well-rounded capital markets experience across asset classes, as well as a strong track record of accomplishments and outstanding relationships with exchanges, banks and brokerage firms throughout the region. Our CEO Travis Schwab and I had the good fortune to work with Vince many years ago, and we saw in him not only a great colleague but an impressive work ethic. He has a thorough understanding of the challenges our clients and prospects face and our ability to help them solve these.”
