Eventus names new EMEA managing director

Eventus Systems has appointed Nick Wallis to the role of managing director for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region.

Wallis will report to Scott Schroeder, who is global head of sales for Eventus. The company is currently seeking to expand its presence in EMEA and plans to further grow its sales, account management and support staff in the coming months.

The new appointee holds extensive experience in financial markets and the technology and energy derivatives markets. He spent 12 years at Nasdaq, where he ran the organisation’s surveillance sales and account management in EMEA, before he moved into surveillance after holding responsibility for the company’s risk management solution.

Earlier on in his time at the company, he served as director of commodity sales, focused on building and managing energy trading accounts.

Wallis also served as business development manager for Tullet Prebon – a global interdealer broker – from 2008 to 2009. In this position, he was responsible for marketing and promoting the brokerage business to senior management at investment banks and trading firms.

In 2005, Walli worked for Incisive Media – now known as InfoPro Digital – to work on Risk Magazine’s sales and sponsorship team in Europe. He later moved to New York to serve as US Publisher, where he oversaw the magazine’s US commercial business.

Wallis said, “The role of the compliance officer has never been more demanding, with new markets, new asset classes and complex data challenges. Firms are looking for agile partners able to address issues quickly in a fast-moving landscape. I believe Eventus is well positioned to attract new clients with its next-generation technology, machine learning and deeply experienced staff. I’ve been really impressed by the Validus platform and by how quickly it can be enhanced to meet clients’ bespoke needs.”
