IRESS Appoints Phil Quin-Conroy as Managing Director in the UK

May 1, 2019

IRESS, the leading Australian software company specialising in the development of software systems and services for financial markets and wealth management, has appointed Phil Quin-Conroy as managing director of the firm’s United Kingdom business, starting in the role on 17 June.

Quin-Conroy held a number of senior financial services and technology leadership roles prior to spearheading lending in Australia at the company. He was once Head of Business Consulting for wealth management business MLC in the United Kingdom and Head of Insurance & Licensee Services for National Australia Bank.

The new Managing Director of IRESS UK was also CEO of one of Australia’s largest mortgage aggregation groups, PLAN Australia, and Head of Broker Services for National Australia Bank’s Advantage, where he was responsible for the operations of the mortgage aggregation businesses, including the modernisation of its technology platform.

Andrew Walsh, Chief Executive Officer at IRESS, commented:

“Phil has more than 25 years’ experience in financial services and technology in Australia and the UK. He joined IRESS two years ago and has successfully established and led the expansion of our lending business in Australia. In the past two years, I have been impressed by Phil, how he forms and builds teams and his focus on clients and business growth.”

Phil Quin-Conroy, Managing Director of IRESS UK, said:

“IRESS holds a strong position in the United Kingdom, and I’m looking forward to working with the team to build on our achievements by delivering outstanding outcomes for our clients and continued strong growth for IRESS.”

The company has recently lost two leading executives to Gold-i, leaders in MT4/MT5 Plugin development for brokers. Ricky Strachan left IRESS to strengthen Gold-i’s UK operations as a sales executive. Dan Picone is heading up Gold-i’s new Sydney office.
CMC Markets has adopted the IRESS’s order management system to help better manage client pre-trade risk, positions, portfolios, margin, order routing, and workflow, this becoming a key component of CMC’s new Prime Derivatives trading platform. The system allows CMC Markets to target institutional and professional clients with a technology that provides an open access model, meaning CMC can now offer these clients FIX and API trading capabilities integrated directly to the system.
