Former Citadel Execs Jean Williams, Rick Enfield Join Asset Control in London, New York

Share article

As exclusively reported by Reference Data Review @ FIMA earlier this month, data management solutions provider Asset Control has hired two former executives of buy side data management systems specialist Citadel Associates. Rick Enfield and Jean Williams have joined Asset Control as product business owners of Asset Control’s AC Plus and TAPMaster solutions respectively. Enfield will be based in New York, and Williams in London.

Williams was co-founder and managing director at Citadel Associates but parted company with the vendor earlier this year due, it was said, to a disagreement between her and the other directors about the future direction of the business. Enfield had not been at Citadel long: he joined as COO late last year from buy side solutions specialist Charles River Development. Citadel itself is undergoing some corporate change, with a new CEO, financial technology veteran and investor Peter Little, whose other interests include wealth management systems provider Investmaster.

Meanwhile, Asset Control has lately confirmed the earlier appointment of Deborah Overdeput as vice president of marketing and product management. Overdeput, who was doing the rounds with Asset Control CEO Phil Lynch at Sibos in Boston last month, was previously senior vice president of marketing and product management for SunGard’s wealth management and brokerage business, and also counts a stint as international marketing manager at Swift among her prior roles.

Asset Control recently moved its New York and London offices to premises more than double their size to accommodate company growth.
