George Govier Joins United Fintech
George Govier, who had earlier been working with Goldman Sachs as a full time analyst in its listed derivatives section, has joined United Fintech in a full time role.
He had been with Goldman Sachs for close to 6.5 years and his switch to United Fintech would be a big boost to the company which has been in an hiring spree recently. United Fintech is a company that focuses on helping financial services companies to scale up their operations. Many companies are started up with a spark but they then reach a plateau in their growth after a couple of years in this industry.
In the financial services industry, it is very important to keep growing and innovating all the time else the company is likely to be left behind. It is here that United Fintech, an UK based company, wants to step in and help such companies in their growth and scaling. It uses its global distribution capabilities to help the companies to reach different regions and scale up their sales and operations as well.
Lately, the company has been looking to hire sales development representatives at various levels to give it a push towards new regions. We had reported earlier of how Marc Levin, the CEO of the CFH group had joined United Fintech as its COO and partner as well. That seems to have given a big boost to its operations as it then proceeded to acquire TTMzero.
This was a company that focussed on providing regulation related technology support and this acquisition was in line with the strategy of United Fintech to acquire and scale companies that had good potential. This also helped to open a new line of business for United as it entered the Regtech and data management business through this acquisition. United had then recruited new team members to push for the sales of the various TTMzero products that were available at that time and it sought to build a strong sales and management team to further its growth in the future. This scaling up of the team pushed the number of members in United to over 75.
The company seems to be continuing with its idea of aggressive growth and they would be looking towards George to provide them the impetus that they seem to be looking for. His experience at Goldman is likely to lend him a good hand though it remains to be seen what kind of role that George would be slotting into at United in the near future.
