Quorsus appoints new Director of Business Development

Quorsus, a provider of consultancy services to financial institutions, has appointed Jon Pittal as Director of Business Development. 

In this role, Pittal will assume multiple chief client office responsibilities, from enhancing the structure and organisation of the function, to strengthening existing client relationships.

Pittal is the latest addition to the fast-growing Quorsus team. Founded at the start of 2020, the consultancy has grown its staff count to over 40 people and is working on an array of projects across a range of tier one clients.

Simon Rees-Goddard, Chief Friend Maker and Managing Partner, Quorsus says: “Jon has extensive experience of working at a senior level with financial institutions, both in-house and as a consultant. Jon’s focus on client outcomes coupled with his project management history in the post-trade services space that Quorsus operates in, makes him the ideal candidate. Jon understands the importance of cultivating relationships and brings a fresh perspective on how we can get to know clients better and the value that brings”.

Pittal joins Quorsus with over 15 years’ experience within financial markets working as a project manager and lead business analyst across both investment and corporate banking initiatives. He has worked at a global level, from building transformation strategies for post-trade, to enabling large investment banks to plan and implement new legal structures in Continental Europe in response to Brexit.

Pittal says: “Throughout my career, I have thrived within roles where I can use my skills and experience to build and nurture more productive and lasting relationships with clients. Quorsus are at the beginning of an exciting journey that needs such strategies to be embedded while meeting the new challenges of the post-Covid business landscape. I’ll also be working with the experienced team at Quorsus to develop thought leadership and bring market insights that will benefit our clients. I look forward to working within such a multi-talented team, as Quorsus and our clients grow together.”
