Stonell will also be responsible for the integration of the majority of the Financial Objects business, which falls into his regional portfolio. Prior to Temenos, Stonell worked at Misys where he held a variety of senior positions including managing director of EMEA for treasury and capital markets and managing director of SE Asia’s banking division.
