PaceMetrics, a global provider of process-driven enterprise data management and process monitoring solutions, today announced that Patrick James “PJ” O’Kane has been appointed as principal consultant. With a strong background in pricing and risk management in banking, O’Kane will be responsible for expanding the PaceMetrics product suite.

I look forward to using the knowledge gained throughout my career in financial services and technology in my product management role, especially in overseeing the further development of PaceMaker. The flexibility offered by PaceMaker means it can provide the crucial link between applications and their users to deliver real business value.”

Giblin added: “Financial institutions really appreciate the benefits of continuous monitoring of business processes in reducing risk and improving efficiency and customer satisfaction levels. PJ, with his extensive experience in financial services technology and product management, is ideally qualified to strengthen our product leadership team and we welcome him aboard.”
