Smartstream, a provider of transaction lifecycle management and corporate actions processing systems, last week announced that Kirby will join February 2 as director of market management. He will report to Smartstream CEO Martin Brown.

The bank will use the system to automate conciliations and exception management as part of a wider risk management project in its treasury department. The bank says it plans to implement TLM enterprisewide under the second phase of the project.
