Arachnys Hires Steve Mann, Robert Lloyd-Watts and Bill Bennett to Build Sales

Arachnys has made key marketing and sales appointments, naming Steve Mann as chief marketing officer, Robert Lloyd-Watts as regional sales director for EMEA and APAC, and Bill Bennett as regional sales director, North America.

The company, a provider of customer risk decisioning solutions for Know Your Customer (KYC), Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Extended Due Diligence (EDD), says the additions to the team are being made at an inflection point as financial services firms face increasingly complex investigatory and operational challenges. Ed Sander, Arachnys president, adds: “These highly experienced individuals will play a key role in delivering comprehensive customer risk decision solutions to our clients.”

Mann will focus on developing the Arachnys brand and driving demand for its financial crime solutions. He has over 25 years’ experience in B2B enterprise marketing, product strategy and brand development and has worked at companies including LexisNexis, SAP and Computer Associates.

Lloyd-Watts will focus on solving complex KYC and AML operational investigation requirements for financial institutions. He has over 20 years’ experience delivering financial crime solutions and most recently worked at BAE Systems on AML, KYC and fraud detection.

Bennett has over 20 years’ experience working with financial institutions to reduce risk and improve performance. Prior to joining Arachnys, Bill was at SAS where he delivered risk and compliance analytics solutions for global accounts.
