Commcise bolsters US business development team


Commcise has appointed Melissa Umans as director of US business development.

Umans, based in the New York office, will be responsible for growing existing relationships and expanding the Commcise presence in the US.

Prior to Commcise, Umans worked at IHS Markit and Goldman Sachs. She has previous experience in research payment account management, commission sharing agreement aggregation and broker evaluations.

Paul Charie, global head of sales at Commcise, said: “Bringing a talent such as Melissa Umans in to the organisation is an important part of our strategic plans for 2018. The North American market is very exciting for Commcise and with Uman’s contacts and experience, we are very confident of continued client base expansion in the US and Canada this year.”

Commenting on her appointment, Umans added: "Since joining Commcise, one of the most pleasant surprises has been witnessing how flexible the system truly is in meeting the needs of a broad range of hedge funds and asset management firms—from smaller, single office firms to the largest, global asset managers managing several teams in multiple regions around the globe.”
