Reval has announced further expansion into central Europe, opening a German office and appointing Walter Schipper as country manager. With an already established presence, Reval considers Germany a high growth market and a strategic part of its European plan of increased investment in markets where there has been a strong demand for its solutions.
“Current market conditions and the strong focus on risk management by German corporations creates a synergy for Reval’s solutions and services” said Schipper.
“Walter’s wealth of experience in finance, treasury and technology spans 20 years and makes him the perfect addition to the Reval EMEA team” added Nigel Sirett, managing director, EMEA. “I look forward to working closely with Walter as we draw on his expertise to continue our momentum in Germany.”
Schipper brings experience in building and developing business in Germany through his engagements with software and service companies such as TKS-TATA and Fernbach Software, for whom he established the German sales and support office. He joins Reval from SunGard, where he held the position of sales manager focused on trading and risk management systems for financial institutions.
