FE fundinfo expands team with senior CRO appointment

Today we appoint Tim Goodhind as our new CRO; a year on from launching as FE fundinfo

04 November 2020

FE fundinfo, the leading global fund data and technology company, has appointed Tim Goodhind as its new Chief Revenue Officer (CRO).

Based in FE fundinfo’s London headquarters, Tim will be responsible for driving the growth of revenue across all lines of the business and will lead the sales, account management and marketing teams globally as well as developing the FE fundinfo’s partner ecosystem.

Commenting on the appointment, CEO Hamish Purdey, said:

“Tim’s appointment comes at an important time as we look towards FE fundinfo’s next stage of growth. Tim will play a key role as we look to deepen our customer and partner relationships and accelerate market adoption of our solution portfolio. He brings a wealth of experience in sales strategy, enabling transformation, delivering growth and customer value.

“In a time of unprecedented change we have an unrivalled opportunity to help our customers simplify their operations, maximise efficiency and unlock innovation. Tim has a proven track record and will help us to execute on our vision to enable the market to be better connected and better informed.

Tim’s career spans over 25 years in the financial services industry, including roles at KPMG and Deutsche Bank. Tim joins FE fundinfo from Finastra, where as part of the extended Executive Leadership team, he contributed to the company’s evolution from a solution provider to a platform company. At Finastra Tim held a number of key customer-facing roles across sales, consulting and partnerships and was most recently Senior Vice President in Global Services Sales.

Tim Goodhind adds:

“FE fundinfo sits in a pivotal position in connecting every aspect of the funds industry, with a unique ability to support our customers as the industry goes through significant change. I am thrilled to be joining at such an important time and looking forward to partnering with the team at FE fundinfo as well as our customers and partners to address both the risks and opportunities that this change creates.”

Tim will join the FE fundinfo senior leadership team alongside Chairman David Blumer and Chief Executive Hamish Purdey, both of whom were appointed to the executive earlier in the year.

Tim’s appointment comes meanwhile as FE fundinfo celebrates its first anniversary, having launched in October 2019 following a merger of UK-based FE, fundinfo in Switzerland and F2C, who were based in Luxembourg. Since then, the company has enjoyed remarkable growth during challenging economic conditions, having expanded and enhanced its operations in Europe, Asia and Australia, while further developing and upscaling its market-leading products and services. Its investment arm meanwhile, FE Investments, recently saw its assets under management (AUM) rise by nearly 30% to more than £3bn over the past year, as investors flock to risk-adjusted managed portfolios.
