Broadridge Announces New Head of Continental Europe for its International Securities Processing Solutions Business

Broadridge Financial Solutions today announced the appointment of Andreas G?nther as head of Continental Europe for its international securities processing solutions business, which currently operates from its offices in Germany, Switzerland and the Czech Republic. He will continue to report to Tom Carey, president, Securities Processing Solutions, International, Broadridge.

In his new role, G?nther will be responsible for Broadridge’s Switzerland-based international private banking solutions business which supports STB2, an international service bureau solution for private and investment banking and asset management operations. The solution provides extensive multi-currency coverage of front- and back-office operational and reporting requirements.

He will also retain his current responsibilities which include management of the European business for Broadridge’s international SWIFT Service Bureau, and its European tax reporting service, FITAS, both of which have increased their market share and functional scope considerably under G?nther’s management.

G?nther began his career at Broadridge (formerly the Brokerage Services Group of Automatic Data Processing, Inc.) in 2005 as managing director of its German office. He has driven the growth of its SWIFT Service Bureau business to an international client base of 30 firms in seven countries, including both buy and sell side financial organisations and, increasingly, the treasury departments of corporate firms. He has also extended the scope of its FITAS tax service which now services banks in several European countries for their German and Austrian private client tax reporting.

Prior to Broadridge, G?nther worked for the European transaction bank in a range of management positions including director of sales and integrated services where he was responsible for the acquisition and implementation of large-scale outsourcing projects. Before that he was head of product management and led the development and implementation of FORSS, the order management and routing system for national and international investment funds. G?nther was also a founder and director of online broker eQ-Online in Germany between 1999 and 2001, and prior to that he worked at Deutsche Borse AG.

“Andreas has a very strong background in business development, borne out by the international success of our SWIFT Service Bureau and FITAS,” said Tom Carey, president, Securities Processing Solutions, International, Broadridge. “His leadership will play an important role as we continue to invest in these solutions and step up our strategy for our international private banking solution,” . Carey added.
