October 30, 2013, 5:46 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Herrington Global will further position itself for global expansion and future growth.
Herrington Global announced today that the company is streamlining its management structure to further position itself for global expansion and future growth. The move, effective immediately, follows strong results for the six-month period and average customer equity up 52 percent. Volume also continues to climb, up 18 percent.
Under the new structure, certain executives will assume increased responsibilities, and the number of officers reporting directly to Mr. Alfred T. Emerson, Herrington Global Chairman and Chief Executive Officer will be reduced significantly.
Mr. Emerson said : “We're very pleased that the foundation we have put in place has resulted in such an upward trend for the first half, particularly in this low interest rate environment. With the recent return of our founding members as majority owners and the support of our Board in regard to our global growth strategy, it's time to position ourselves with a streamlined management structure. This approach will make the best use of our talented, experienced management team, challenging them to build on and enhance our strategy.”
Reporting to Mr. Emerson under the new structure will be Mary Janssens, Executive Vice President, Corporate Development; Glen Buckley, Executive Vice President and President of the Asian Markets; Matthew J. Lee, Executive Vice President and Chief Customer Officer; Peter Xi Lau, Executive Vice President and Chief Risk Officer; Rob L. Martins, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer; and Eileen Leung, Senior Vice President, Human Resources.
In the new structure, Glen will expand his sales management efforts internationally as he assumes responsibility for the sales teams in Europe. He will continue to oversee New York Sales and the strategy supporting the firm's over-the-counter and foreign exchange initiatives.
He will continue to oversee all aspects of the client experience, from account management, to product design and Client Services.
All aspects of Risk, Operations and Technology will be under one umbrella, reporting to Xi Lau. Mr. Emerson said this will promote the seamless integration between risk management, technology and operations.
