London, 08 January 2018 – HANetf is delighted to announce two senior hires, further expanding the expertise and capabilities of Europe’s first independent white label ETF platform.
Jason Griffin has been appointed as Director, Capital Markets and Business Development. Griffin brings 10 years of experience in ETFs and over 20 years in the financial sector, most recently at Source. Prior to that, he worked for Tradition and Blackrock, heading up UK and European sales and oversight for broker dealer sales and capital markets. Griffin reports to Hector McNeil and is responsible for business development and management of existing client relationships.
Simon Mott has been appointed as Director of Marketing. Mott brings over 14 years of experience gained from senior marketing roles, most recently at index leader FTSE Russell, where he was responsible for the development and execution of the company’s global ETF and Wealth Management marketing strategy. Reporting to Hector McNeil, Mott will be responsible for driving all aspects of marketing strategy, brand awareness and customer engagement.
Hector McNeil said “The market reaction to the launch of HANetf has been beyond our expectations and the pipeline of potential clients is looking very healthy. Our main focus at this point is building the company’s systems, processes and most importantly the team. The hires of Jason and Simon bring invaluable ETF experience to the company, nearing 100 years across the team.”
“Jason has in-depth Capital Markets and sales experience which we will lean on heavily as we build our market making and authorised participant network. He will also help source and on-board new asset management clients. Simon is one of the leading marketeers in the European ETF market. He has vast experience working with multiple issuers and asset managers as partners whilst at FTSE Russell and this will be extremely useful to HANetf and its clients.”
