Phi Partners launches Benelux headquarters in the Netherlands

Opens new office and appoints Ed Ranson as sales director to provide local support for growing client base across the Benelux region

Amsterdam, September 30, 2013 – Phi Partners, the specialist financial technology consultancy to trading institutions, has opened an office in Amsterdam, which will serve as its local base for its growing client base in the Benelux region. The office will be headed by Ed Ranson, newly-appointed Sales Director for the UK and Benelux, who will report directly to Phi Partners CEO, Desmond Stockdale.

With 10 years’ experience working with trading and risk systems, predominantly Summit and Murex, Ed will be responsible for unlocking new sales opportunities for Phi across the UK and Benelux. In his previous role, Ed was responsible for establishing the Amsterdam office for industry recruitment firm, Cititec.

“I joined Phi because it is a fast-growing consultancy and boasts some of the best consultants in the sector,” says Ed. “Phi’s blend of high-quality people, clear domain focus and collaborative, independent approach makes for a compelling offering for clients managing constant and rapid change in the market. I strongly believe in the vision and business strategy at Phi and look forward to playing a key role in what marks the next stage in the company’s expansion.”

The Amsterdam office will offer the full range of Phi services: staff augmentation, consulting & advisory services, managed services, project services and training services, and will work with Phi’s Managed Services Centre in Bucharest.

Desmond Stockdale added, “Amsterdam provides Phi with a logical strategic foothold as we have seen sustained growth across Europe, and particularly in the Benelux region. As we continue to expand our portfolio of services, our potential audience widens, and this on-the-ground presence will give us greater proximity to key clients, both old and new. We’re delighted to be welcoming Ed on board to lead this operation. He has the ideal blend of experience and understanding of Phi’s goals to equip us and our clients for success in the future.”

The office is located at WTC H-toren, Zuidplein 36. For full contact details, please click here.
