Broadridge beats the Asia Pacific Drumm


Broadridge Financial Solutions has appointed James Drumm to the role of senior director for strategic account sales in the Asia Pacific region.

Drumm will be responsible for generating new business sales for a range of Broadridge solutions in the Asia Pacific region, including its multi-asset, multi-currency processing solution, Gloss.

He has more than 20 years of experience in solution and consultative sales and relationship management within the financial services marketplace.

He previously held senior director positions at Omgeo where he was instrumental in growing its business across Asia. He has also worked at Dion Global and Thomson Reuters.

Tom Carey, president of securities processing solutions international at Broadridge, said: “Drumm brings a wealth of in-depth experience to Broadridge and we are confident that he will have a major impact on our presence in this strategically important region.”

The expansion of sales and relationship management resources is part of an ongoing strategic programme of investment and focus for Broadridge in the Asia Pacific region.

Recent initiatives have included solution developments to facilitate new market connectivity in Japan, India and Singapore.

Broadridge has also expanded Gloss’s multi-asset capabilities to include processing for a range of treasury and derivatives instruments, including futures, options and swaps.

Drumm added: “As firms grapple with increasing regulatory pressures in a challenging economic climate, I am delighted to be joining a company that has demonstrated a strong track record of success and an exemplary commitment to the highest standards of customer service. Broadridge is extremely well-positioned to offer compelling solutions to the unique countries that make up the dynamic Asia Pacific territory.”
