Subscribe to our newsletter

It has emerged that Paul Wilson has left the role of chief marketing officer (CMO) at SunGard Financial Systems after working at the company for a total of nearly 14 years. Wilson joined SunGard in 1999, initially leading the marketing of two international business segments before being promoted to lead corporate marketing in EMEA and then becoming CMO.

During Wilson’s tenure, SunGard grew from a privately owned $1.8 billion company into a $5 billion company, transitioning from a group of over 200 acquired product-centric businesses into an integrated global brand. As CMO, Wilson led a team of over 150 staff in a worldwide company with 20,000 staff servicing 25,000 customers.

The highlights of Wilson’s career at SunGard include the worldwide customer engagement campaign Transparency, Efficiency, Networks – or TEN, which was named by B2B Marketing as Best International Campaign in both 2011 and 2012; the company’s Mission Critical advertising campaign; and pioneering product management of software solutions designed to meet the requirements of the European Commission’s Markets in Financial Instruments Directive.

Prior to joining SunGard, Wilson worked as head of marketing at start-up RiskCare, a financial services consultancy. Before this he held a communications role at The Prince’s Trust after starting his career in 1995 as a broadcast journalist for BBC News.

Since Wilson left SunGard at the end of June 2012, the company’s marketing function has reported to Jim Neve, senior vice president of sales and marketing.
