Fund data management solutions provider, Kneip today announced that it has appointed Jacob Koopmans as its new Chief Commercial Officer. The new CCO will be leading the company’s global product and sales teams to accelerate product development and build closer relationships with clients and partners as the company looks to further expand its worldwide offering. He will join Kneip as a member of the Executive Leadership Team, reporting to CEO, Enrique Sacau.

Jacob Koopmans, Chief Commercial Officer of Kneip, said, “Having worked in the financial sector for most of my career, I’m delighted to be joining one of the world’s leading fund data companies and working with some of the biggest names in the asset management industry. With growth at the forefront of Kneip’s 2021 plans, I’m looking forward to playing a role by fostering a customer-centric approach in product development and through new partnerships.”

Koopmans, previously, worked at Refinitiv and led the sales functions across the EMEA region. He also worked at Thomson Reuters and led the UK account management function. He has experience in delivering accelerated revenue in multiple geographies by transforming organisational structures, sales strategies, and talent development programmes.

Recently, Kneip joined TISA’s Universal Reporting Network (TURN). TURN aims to reduce data and analytics costs for asset managers by around 80-90% per annum from year one and the utility, powered by Atos, aims to ease regulatory reporting requirements of MiFID II. The new blockchain solution is expected to be launched across Europe this quarter.

Enrique Sacau, Chief Executive Officer of Kneip, said, “We are excited for Jacob to join Kneip as Chief Commercial Officer. As our industry continues to evolve rapidly, it is ever more critical to engage with the market and develop solutions that help our clients meet their strategic objectives. Jacob brings a wealth of experience in the financial sector, and an excellent track record in developing successful commercial teams and customer centric cultures. Our Executive Team looks forward to working with him to shape our commercial offering and increase our company’s industry-leading position.”
