Paladyne Systems has appointed Jim Feingold as global head of sales.
In addition, joining the sales and business development team as senior hires are Devani Maijala, Lisa Zippelius and Michael Conti.
”We are pleased to expand our sales and business development with a seasoned team to be led by an industry veteran of Jim’s calibre as we continue to grow our client base across the buy-side globally,” says Sameer Shalaby, president, Paladyne Systems. “Since Paladyne was acquired by Broadridge we have significantly expanded our product offering and account coverage, and are extending into adjacent markets beyond the hedge fund community.”
“I am excited to join Broadridge and lead Paladyne's sales team at this juncture. Broadridge's global reach and commitment, combined with Paladyne’s extensive trading, portfolio management and enterprise data management capabilities, creates an institutional offering unique in the marketplace,” says Feingold (pictured).
Feingold will have responsibility for generating revenue globally, leveraging existing and developing new buy-side relationships directly with hedge funds, asset managers, service providers and channel partners, as well as supporting Paladyne sales into adjacent markets.
He was most recently global head of institutional sales at Direct Markets, a subsidiary of Rodman & Renshaw, and prior to that global head of sales and marketing at Portware. He has held sales and marketing positions at Progress Software, Merrill Lynch, Laidlaw Capital Management and Bloomberg Financial Markets.
Devani Maijala joins Paladyne as a senior director of sales and will be primarily focused on expanding strategic relationships with global hedge fund administrators and asset managers. Previously, Maijala was a senior relationship manager of the Americas at Bloomberg in the enterprise asset and investment manager (AIM) division, focusing on portfolio and risk analytics.
Lisa Zippelius joins Paladyne’s New York office as a senior director of buy-side sales and will focus on the rapidly expanding prime brokerage channel for Paladyne. Zippelius spent nine years at Goldman Sachs where she was most recently a vice president in the prime brokerage group as a trader on the securities lending desk.
Michael Conti joins Paladyne as senior director of sales and will cover direct sales to hedge funds and asset management clients in the US. Conti was most recently at Thomson Reuters as a global sales lead, and has over 25 years of industry experience, both in financial services technology and investment banking.
