XSP Welcomes Ex-ISITC Co-chair Martinez Back into the Fold

Following a brief stint outside the financial services industry, Laura Martinez has rejoined XSP as a senior product manager for its flagship solution, the XSP platform. Martinez, who held a co-chair position on the ISITC Corporate Actions Working Group during her tenure at XSP, will report to Jennifer Bush, senior director of product innovation and major accounts.

“She has an outstanding reputation in the industry, particularly for her Swift messaging expertise, and her extensive XSP product knowledge will provide further benefits to our global client base,” says Bush.”

Martinez is an active participant and contributor to the ISITC Corporate Actions Working Group. She works closely with Paul Fullam, senior director of business strategy at XSP and incumbent co-chair of the ISITC Corporate Actions Working Group, to collaborate with fellow ISITC members for the purpose of harmonising messaging standards and promoting greater straight through processing in corporate actions.

She returns to XSP from EBSCO Industries, where she was senior product manager for one year. She previously served as principal product manager at XSP responsible for ensuring that the company’s flagship solution complies with global Securities Market Practice Group (SMPG) initiatives. Martinez reviewed all changes to the Swift standards and SMPG guidelines to determine the impact of these changes to the XSP system. She also reviewed all changes made to the XSP system to determine what impact the changes may have on the processing of ISO messages. In addition, Martinez managed the company’s research and development initiatives to facilitate introduction of new functionality to the XSP system.

Prior to joining XSP, Martinez served as business analyst at Source Medical. Additionally, her previous experience includes a position as IT Manager at Healthsouth, where she worked on various technology initiatives including the re-engineering of the company’s intranet site to streamline processing.
