Tony Kirby, the Reference Data Coalition (Redac) secretary and former leader of Reuters’ reference data strategy, has resigned from latest employers Deutsche Borse to take a job at Smartstream Technologies. 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. In his new role, Kirby will be responsible for leading Smartstream’s strategic marketing function, forging strategic partnerships and working with the management team on strategy and corporate activity.

Meanwhile, Smartstream announced that Israel Discount Bank of New York (IDBBank) has become the latest client for its Transaction Lifecycle Management product. 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.
