Trade surveillance RegTech Eventus names new managing director in APAC

Trade surveillance and market risk solution developer Eventus has named Scott Leader – former Workday executive director – as its new managing director, APAC.

In this role, Leader will head Eventus’ sales efforts in the Asia Pacific region and will be based in Sydney.

Leader has nearly three decades of experience within financial services, sales and management in APAC and Europe, hiring and building high-performing teams at large organisations, including financial exchanges and global business information services providers.

Eventus has been growing its presence in the APAC region, with staff in Hong Kong, Singapore, Republic of Korea and Australia.

The RegTech company offers global multi-asset class trade surveillance and market risk solutions. Its flagship solution Validus is easy to deploy, customise and operate across equities, options, futures, foreign exchange (FX), fixed income and digital asset markets.

Prior to Eventus, Leader served as executive director at Workday, a provider of enterprise cloud applications for finance and human resources. Prior to this, he served as regional vice president of cloud content management and sharing platform Box, where he founded and ran the Sydney office.

Eventus global head of sales Scott Schroeder 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.”

Eventus recently named Nick Wallis as its new managing director for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region to support growth in the area.

Eventus recently signed a deal with cryptocurrency exchange company FTX. As part of the deal, FTX leverages Eventus’ technology trade surveillance and risk monitoring on the FTX US spot market and on FTX US Derivatives.
