New management and organisational structure to support planned expansion
London, 27th November 2001 –COR Systems Ltd, the software and services provider for the financial services industry, today announced a new management and organisational structure and a change of company name to reflect its recent growth and plans for new products and services.
The company has been renamed COR Financial Solutions Ltd., reflecting the broader market reach of its products, consultancy and services across the financial sector.
Two market-focused divisions have been formed, each offering specialist software, integration and consultancy services to a particular sector:
· COR’s Investment Solutions (IS) division addresses the marketing and fund administration requirements of the retail investment industry through the CO-STARS™ suite of products. COR-IS is headed up by Chris Kaye.
· COR’s Internet Banking Solutions (IBS) division provides secure Java-based solutions for online commercial and retail banking over the internet. COR-IBS is headed up by Mark Hipperson.
Steve Osborne, executive chairman, comments: “Following the acquisition of IBS - Global in September, we needed a structure which allowed us to meet the needs of differing markets and customers. In the new COR Financial Solutions, central corporate functions will be shared, whilst each division retains the freedom to develop, market and sell as best suits its sector. The senior management team will ensure cross-fertilisation of technologies and skills between divisions, including any new ones we subsequently introduce.“
Steve continues: “We have just secured second round funding for our growth plans. Even in today’s challenging financial climate, the placement was oversubscribed, and this included substantial contribution from the management and staff. Clearly our investors recognise the strength of our product range, the management team and our strategic plans for further acquisitions and developments.”
