Reval, a provider of software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for corporate financial risk management, has hired three solution consultants in North America: Sharon Ching, Priya Kurian and Shane Randolph, each of whom will be working closely with Krishnan Iyengar, chairman of Reval’s hedge accounting technical taskforce and the risk management taskforce. Collectively, their experience ranges from positions in corporate treasury and financial institutions to advisory and Big Four accounting firms.
Ching brings experience from various treasury organisations across different industries, such as electronics, retail, technology and transportation, in positions at companies such as Samsung, Avnet, Levi Strauss, leading SaaS technology provider Salesforce.com and MV Transportation. Prior to her roles in corporate treasury, she worked as a senior consultant (risk consulting) at Andersen, advising corporate treasury clients on all risk management matters and as an auditor with KPMG.
Kurian joins Reval from Canadian mining company Barrick Gold, where she gained strong derivative risk management and hedge accounting experience. Kurian also worked at Deloitte auditing Canadian financial institutions, and will be working from Reval’s Toronto office.
Covering the Western region of the US, Randolph brings deep energy hedging experience from his positions in the commodity space at Sirius Solutions and from his work in accounting policy at OneOK and as an auditor at KPMG.
