New York, NY (PRWEB) June 21, 2016
Wealth-X, the global authority on wealth intelligence, today announced that Chief Commercial Officer Marc Cohen and Chief Financial Officer Richard Green have each been named Co-President of the company and will join the Wealth-X Board of Directors. In addition, Wealth-X has announced the appointments of Prasanth Ramanand as Vice President of Product Development and Christine Noh as Director of Legal Affairs.
Having more than doubled in size following its acquisition of Ledbury Research in February of 2015, Wealth-X has seen tremendous growth since it was launched in 2010. As such, the company is evolving its operational capabilities and developing innovative research practices and product support to provide the highest level of client service.
“As we continue to deploy new initiatives, Marc and Richard’s new roles will ensure that Wealth-X has seasoned leadership for its continued growth,” said Wealth-X Chairman, Euan Menzies. “Both have a demonstrated track record of success and I look forward to working closely with them as we build upon our market-leading position.”
Cohen joined Wealth-X in early 2015 further to the acquisition of Ledbury Research, which he co-founded in 2003 and built into a leading specialist HNW research agency. Prior to Ledbury, Cohen was a Product Manager and Sales Specialist at Forrester Research, the global consumer technology consultancy. He is based in the company’s London office.
Green joined Wealth-X from Roubini Global Economics where he was CEO. Prior to that he served as COO and CFO of Roubini which he joined during its startup phase in 2006 and was instrumental in leading the company’s global expansion. Green is a Chartered Accountant in England and Wales, and also holds a membership with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. He is based in the company’s New York office.
Wealth-X has also created leadership roles focused on product development and legal counsel to further elevate its preeminent wealth intelligence services.
As Vice President of Product Development, Ramanand is responsible for leading the development and implementation of product strategy for the company’s data offerings. He joins Wealth-X’s New York office from LexisNexis where he served as Director of Product Management, leading strategy for two high-growth software products. Ramanand holds a Bachelor’s in Technology with honors from Cochin University, an M.S. in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University and earned his M.B.A. from Columbia Business School.
Also based in New York, Noh is responsible for providing legal counsel and guidance related to Wealth-X’s products and research services. Prior to joining Wealth-X, she was Assistant General Counsel at HBI Incorporated, the New York representative office of the Hinduja family, and served as Group Counsel to Hinduja Global Solutions, Inc., HGS (USA), LLC, and the other U.S. subsidiaries of Hinduja Global Solutions, Ltd. Noh began her career as a mergers & acquisitions associate at Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP. She received her J.D. from the University of Pennsylvania Law School and her B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley, and is admitted to practice law in New York.
“These new roles are representative of our ongoing investment into enhanced business practices and superior client service,” said Cohen and Green in a joint statement. “Prasanth’s background will be of tremendous benefit as we refresh and enhance our products, and Christine’s expertise will provide an added level of insight as we strive to meet our ever-increasing client demand.”
In conjunction with these organisational changes, Wealth-X founders Mykolas Rambus and David Friedman will be stepping down in September of 2016 from their positions as CEO and President, respectively.
“I would like to thank both Mykolas and David for their significant contributions to the creation and growth of Wealth-X,” Mr. Menzies said. “Their vision to develop a leading global platform of wealth intelligence has provided a strong base on which we will continue to build.”
