Brian Sentance Leaves Role of CEO at Xenomorph

Brian Sentance has stepped down from the role of CEO at Xenomorph Software after 23 years at the helm and following a successful first close of a two-stage funding round. He is replaced as CEO by Ron Zeghibe, a director of Xenomorph Holdings since May 2016. Matthew Skinner, managing director EMEA, joins Zeghibe as part of the new management team.

Sentance founded Xenomorph with Chris Budgen and Mark Woodgate in 1995. The principles of the company were to make it easy for clients to manage and analyse large quantities of data, and do so with enough flexibility to match the ever-changing needs of financial markets.

In a farewell letter posted on LinkedIn, Sentance writes: “These principles have enabled the company to successfully navigate the various waves of technological, economic and regulatory changes that have challenged both us and our clients these past 23 years. Fast forward to 2018 and industry terminology such as ‘Big Data’ and ‘Self-Service Business Intelligence’ becoming mainstream has ultimately validated many of our original ideas, ideas that form a great foundation for Xenomorph to help its clients successfully meet the future data challenges of the industry.”

The company’s key product, TimeScape EDM+, has been developed as both a cloud and enterprise data management and analytics solution designed to support a number of regulatory, risk and valuation challenges.

Sentance concludes: “So what next for me? I will take a bit of a break, but I still hope to be involved in the finance and technology markets in a variety of capacities over coming months and years.”
