Share article

Broadridge Financial Solutions, today announced three senior appointments for its growing international Investor Communication Solutions business. The appointments include Naren Patel as Director and Regional Head Relationship Management, Keir Tutt as Senior Director of Customer Services, International and Jonathan Ford as Director of Sales in London.

Naren Patel has recently been added to the management team to lead the initiative for strategic account management with Broadridge’s key clients in Europe. He is responsible for the global, regional and local custody bank and global proxy client relationships within the Investor Communication Solutions business segment. Naren has been involved in the securities arena for over 25 years and brings a wealth of knowledge to Broadridge having held various senior positions in operations, sales, marketing, business development and strategic global account relationship management. These have all been with tier-1 service providers, including National Westminster Bank, Royal Bank of Canada / Royal Trust (now RBC Dexia), SWIFT, and more recently Fiserv. Naren has been a long standing International Member of the Chartered Securities Institute of UK and a registered SFA representative.

In 2008 Naren co-authored the book Global Custody – Clearing and Settlement.

Keir Tutt is an experienced operations and customer service professional with a proven track record of international success. Most recently with Thomson’s Online Benefits, he was the Director of Client Services, growing a small team of six to a high-performing team of 38 employees. Keir has spent much of his career within operational management in the financial services industry leading many different types of operational teams from large back office administration departments, such as the Group Personal Pensions department at Legal and General, to small multi-skilled client services teams serving clients on an outsourced basis. Keir has a proven track record of providing excellent service delivery, generating efficiency improvements as well as improving key performance indicators (KPIs) for clients.

Formerly with Thomson Financial and the London Stock Exchange, Jonathan Ford joins Broadridge from Investis, a leading consultancy in online corporate communications and investor relations, where he was head of the mid- and small-cap sales team and client director with responsibility for some of the UK’s largest companies. Jonathan will focus on spearheading the development of Broadridge’s investor communication solutions business in the UK and Ireland, in particular helping institutions, investors and issuers to maximise communications, increase transparency and identify cost-savings in the proxy voting space. There is a growing focus in the UK for increased transparency and disclosure through initiatives such as The Stewardship Code, and Broadridge has the solutions and domain experience to help firms meet these ongoing requirements.

“We are delighted with our continued expansion of the investor communications business at Broadridge,” said James O’Regan, General Manager, Investor Communication Solutions, International, Broadridge. “We are looking forward to continuing our ongoing client relationships with the appointments of Naren, Keir and Jonathan. They bring a wealth of experience and a great knowledge of the investor communications industry.”
