SmartStream Technologies has appointed John Mason as UK regional director to replace Richard Cummings as he moves to head the firm’s Asia Pacific operations.
Prior to joining SmartStream, Mason was managing director, EMEA for Capco Reference Data Service, which was bought by Netik earlier this year, and has held management positions with BCS, Aleri and GoldenSource (formerly FTi).
Ken Archer, CEO of SmartStream, hopes that Mason will help the vendor to focus on meeting clients’ needs: ” John’s experience and expertise means he is ideally placed to understand and advise customers on their processing challenges in the middle and back office.”
Mason, who joined SmartStream six years ago and has spent the last 18 months leading the UK operation, will be based at SmartStream’s new regional headquarters in Singapore. Prior to working at SmartStream he held leadership positions with both Reuter’s and SunGard’s Risk Management businesses in Asia Pacific. SmartStream’s Asia Pacific operations cover Australia, New Zealand, China, India, Japan, Korea and the ASEAN countries.
