PrimeXM CEO Cristian Vlasceanu Leaves After Organizational Restructuring, Founder Clive Diethelm Steps in

January 8, 2019

restructuringPrimeXM, the pioneer in technology solutions for the finance industry is going through a restructuring process of its business operations and had made some major changes to personnel.

The company has relieved its current CEO Cristian Vlasceanu from his role in December and PrimeXM’s founder, Clive Diethelm, has stepped in to take his place. While speaking to FinanceMagnates, Diethelm said:

“We’d like to thank Cristian for his time with us and wish him the best for the future. Looking forward, we have built up a strong base of operations in Cyprus and are making a lot of headway in China.”

Cristian Vlasceanu was appointed as CEO in February 2016, and under him, the company has expanded tremendously into China and has set up offices in Shanghai and also has an office in Shenzhen. The company is also increasing support staff for its Chinese clients.

In 2018, the company moved its headquarters to a new office in Cyprus and centralised its development team there. Alongside, PrimeXM also managed to secure two important audits the ISAE 3000 third-party assurance standard and the Penetration and Vulnerability Assessment for protection against security attacks which will be done by PwC.

George Swann, Head of Global Infrastructure at PrimeXM spoke to FinanceMagnates on the issue:

“At PrimeXM, we have always maintained the highest security throughout our operations. Hiring PwC was a further means for us to give independent assurance on our processes and controls to our customers, auditors and regulators. Just like the ISO 27001, the ISAE3000 is proof of the high quality of our services.”
