JHC names new chief technology officer

JHC Systems has appointed Ron Tomlinson as its chief technology officer.

He has been head of solutions development at the WealthTech firm since January 2018, and will now be responsible for all delivery teams, as well as leading technology strategy to ensure a constantly evolving suite of services and platforms.

Last July, JHC was acquired by wealth management platform services provider FNZ, and Tomlinson will also now be responsible for delivering JHC’s Application Programming Interface (API) integration with FNZ’s product suite, to ensure scalable access and collaboration between both firms.

JHC chief executive John Blackman said: “Following the acquisition, there is a significant opportunity to consolidate JHC and FNZ’s capabilities to make sure that we can offer our clients scalable technology that will be effective now and in the future.”

Tomlinson commented: “Since joining JHC last year, I’ve found an organisation that matches my enthusiasm for software development and understands the importance of rapid delivery – DevOps practices and fast feedback cycles are a big focus for us to enable that rapid delivery.

“The regulatory landscape is ever evolving, which is why it is so vital that we are constantly developing our offering to ensure that our clients are able to stay ahead of the curve,” he continued.

“For instance, we know that ESG [environmental, social and governance] monitoring and accessibility via cloud continue to be a big priority for our clients, so making sure that they are best equipped to manage that is currently a key focus.”
