StatPro Adds Two More New Hires to European Team, Both From FactSet

Following a bout of hiring last year, portfolio analytics and data solutions vendor StatPro has started 2010 by adding yet more members to its European team. The vendor has poached two members from data and analytics rival FactSet Research Systems to join European sales director Tim Dennis’ team: Robert Campbell and Christopher Ruby.

StatPro has been focused on expanding its presence in Europe over the last year or so and these two new hires to the business development and sales team in the region are a key part of that process. Ruby joins as business development manager for UK and Scotland and will work with the existing account managers and be responsible for building strategic relationships and selling addition analytical solutions to existing clients. Campbell has been appointed business development manager for new business in the UK and Ireland. In this role, Campbell will focus on selling StatPro’s performance measurement and data solutions to buy side clients. Both positions are based at StatPro’s London office.

The appointments follow the selection of Dennis, who joined from ValueLink, as European sales director in June and Mark Grobien as Paris-based business development manager for the German market in October.

Ruby has nine years of experience working in the finance and technology industry and spent six years at FactSet Research Systems. Starting as a senior consultant in the US, he moved to London in 2006 where he progressed his career in the sales team. He also worked for Rinet in 2003 as a member of the investment advisory team, and ran his own IT business in Boston from 2001 to 2003.

Originally from Australia, Campbell has 10 years experience spent in various business development roles. Prior to joining StatPro, he also worked at FactSet Europe as a business development manager for three years. From 2003 to 2006 he worked for Loftex, a Chinese textile manufacturer, as a business development manager, based in Australia. He also worked for E*Trade Australia as a trading specialist and for Heibei University in China earlier in his career.

The vendor is heavily focused on pushing its software as a service (SaaS) offerings around its client services portal and its complex financial assets valuations offering, both of which launched in November 2008. Dennis hopes Ruby and Campbell will boost the sales and development process for a new iteration of the SaaS solution, due out at the start of this year. “They join StatPro at a particularly exciting time as with the imminent launch of StatPro Seven, our new SaaS offering, a low maintenance and low cost hosted analytics platform, the time is right to market our products to the medium and smaller asset managers, hedge and pension funds,” he explains.
