Xenomorph Establishes Singapore Subsidiary, Moves Winson to Become Director

Analytics and data management solution provider Xenomorph has continued on its global expansion path, following CEO Brian Sentance’s move to the US last year, with the establishment of a new Singapore subsidiary and the move of current head of consultancy David Winson to lead the new business. Winson, who has been with the vendor since 2005 and has since focused on its TimeScape solution, has therefore been appointed director of Xenomorph Singapore.

The move is part of the vendor’s strategic plan to extend its reach in the Asia Pacific region over the course of 2011; it is also planning to open an office in Hong Kong later this year. Winson explains of the new office in Singapore: “Having a local presence in Singapore is a natural step for Xenomorph as it enables us to support our existing clients more closely and to better satisfy their demands for round the clock support. It comes at a time when we have been receiving strong interest from major Asian institutions.”

Winson’s experience with the TimeScape solution is likely the main reason why he was appointed to lead the new operations, given the vendor’s focus on supporting Asian firms’ risk management, derivatives valuations and trading decision support functions. “TimeScape ‘s flexibility, extensibility and ease of use allows our clients to import, store, validate and analyse any kind of data easily and quickly, from the simplest to the most complex financial markets datasets, across all business functions” adds Winson. “With our global footprint, we look forward to strengthening our collaboration with local partners and market experts.”

Prior to his appointment at Xenomorph, Winson worked for asset managers such as World Asset Management, Rothschild and Insight.

The opening of the Singapore office also follows the relocation of two senior staff members from the London office to Australia: senior developer Irina Taran and Chris Budgen, chief technical architect and founding director, earlier this year.
