Xenomorph Extends Local Technical Support Capability in Asia Pacific

Xenomorph, the analytics and data management solution provider to global financial institutions, extends local technical support capability to Australia and the Asia Pacific time zone with the relocation of two senior employees from the UK to Australia.

Chris Budgen, chief technical architect and founding director, and Irina Taran, senior developer, have moved to Melbourne and Sydney respectively to boost the company’s presence in Australia and to enhance Xenomorph’s technical support offering to regional clients.

Following sustained business growth and a surge of interest from major Asian financial institutions, Xenomorph has decided to enhance its presence in Asia Pacific to complement its well established presence in Europe and North America.

“Financial markets are fundamentally based on data; how data is managed and how data is analysed has never been more important in risk management, trading and regulatory compliance. As the Australian and wider Asian market expands, we sense great opportunity in assisting financial markets institutions in the region to reach better decisions based on higher quality, more transparent and more consistent data”, says Budgen.

“TimeScape has been designed and built with customisation in mind ensuring that Xenomorph is well placed to successfully meet the complex and specific data management challenges of sell side and buy side institutions in Asia Pacific,” adds Budgen. “We have a strong track record of sales in Europe, the US, Latin America and Hong Kong and have received growing interest from major Asian institutions. This move reinforces our worldwide presence and demonstrates our commitment to local clients”, concludes Budgen

London-based Brian Kristensen continues as head of product development and takes over responsibility for the day-to-day running of the product development team.
