Eventus has appointed Scott B. Leader as Managing Director, APAC, where he will be heading the company’s sales efforts in the Asia-Pacific region.
The US-based provider of multi-asset class trade surveillance and market risk solutions has been steadily growing its presence in APAC, with staff now on the ground in Hong Kong, Singapore, the Republic of Korea and Australia, along with an expanding client base throughout the region.
With nearly three decades of financial services, sales, and management experience throughout APAC and Europe, Scott Leader will be based in Sydney and report to Eventus Global Head of Sales Scott Schroeder.
APAC has different approaches to financial market regulation
Scott Schroeder, Global Head of Sales at Eventus, said: “Scott has a great record of driving growth as well as building and managing successful sales teams at major capital markets organizations. Given the very different approach to financial market regulation throughout APAC, there is a compelling need for our services and expertise, and Scott will play a key role in fueling our expansion. We’ve already established a strong foundation in the region and want to continue to add to our teams in sales, account management and support to serve an ever-increasing client base.”
Scott Leader, Managing Director, APAC at Eventus, commented: “Eventus is a highly innovative, respected company that partners closely with clients to make markets safer and help meet their regulatory and compliance challenges. I’m looking forward to building on the talented team and delivering this complete solution to a diverse region with such a wide range of unique jurisdictions.”
