Workspace management and workflow automation platform OpenFin has appointed Vicky Sanders as its new chief digital officer.
In her new role, Sanders will drive the company’s digital transformation across its ecosystem of buy-side and sell-side institutions along with the global vendor community.
Sanders most recently served as chief commercial officer for TP ICAP Group’s agency execution division, where she was responsible for overseeing the commercial strategy of the Liquidnet and Coex Partners businesses.
Prior to that, she co-founded RSRCHXchange in 2014, a fintech operating as an aggregator and marketplace for institutional research, leading the business through its acquisition by Liquidnet.
She also worked at Goldman Sachs and Merrill Lynch after graduating from Harvard University.
The appointment follows the company’s recent $10 million investment from ING Ventures to facilitate its expansion plans.
OpenFin designed and launched its product Workspace in 2021, in collaboration with “several” global banks and asset managers, in a bid to solve workflow challenges.
“Today, Workspace accelerates standardisation and openness across the industry while solving desktop and employee productivity issues at an enterprise level,” says Adam Toms, COO of OpenFin.
Toms adds that Sanders will drive the firm’s “digital optimisation efforts for end-users across the company’s ecosystem”.
OpenFin claims its application is used by 90% of global financial institutions, deploying over 3,500 desktop applications to more than 3,800 buy-side and sell-side firms.
Its investors include Bain Capital Ventures, Barclays, CME Ventures, DRW Venture Capital, HSBC, ING Ventures, JP Morgan, NYCA Partners, Pivot Investment Partners, Standard Chartered and Wells Fargo Strategic Capital, among others.
The company is based in New York with an office in London and presence in Hong Kong and Singapore.
