Societe Generale Securities Services strengthens sales with two appointments

Societe Generale Securities Services (SGSS) has appointed Stewart Gladstone as head of segment and solutions for banks and financial intermediaries, and Steve Gutowski as director of sales and relationship management for broker dealers.

In his new role, Gladstone will lead the strategy, sales, and relationship management of new and existing global banking and financial intermediary clients.  As part of Gutowski’s newly created role, he will be responsible for driving new business and sales of SGSS’ solutions, primarily clearing and settlement services, for global broker dealers. 

Based in London, Gladstone and Gutowski will report locally to Matt Davey, head of coverage, marketing and solutions for SGSS UK, and functionally to Gildas Le Treut, global head of sales and relationship management for SGSS. 

Gladstone joined SGSS in 2006 and was responsible for corporate actions within the clearing services business in the UK. In 2009, he became operations manager for global custody in London, before moving to the emerging markets sales and relationship management team in 2012.  Prior to SGSS, Gladstone held various operational positions at Fidelity Brokerage, Lloyds TSB Securities Services, TokyoMitsubishi International, and Nomura International.

Gutowski joined SGSS in December 2017 to lead the strategic direction of the product and solutions group within SGSS UK for the broker dealer segment. Prior to this, Gutowski was a senior product manager at BNY Mellon where he was responsible for clearing, settlement, and custody solutions.   

Commenting on the appointments, Davey says: “I am delighted to welcome Stewart and Steve to their new roles. They bring over 39 years of combined experience and established track records in delivering clearing, settlement, custody and cash solutions, for the benefit of our clients.   

“Their extensive expertise in the industry, as well as their deep knowledge of SGSS, will be instrumental in further strengthening our commitment to these client segments, leveraging on our innovation, efficiency, and technology capabilities.”
