OpenFin, the operating system of enterprise productivity, has announced it is strengthening its executive leadership team by appointing Vicky Sanders as Chief Digital Officer. Sanders, a highly successful entrepreneur and experienced industry operative, will drive digital transformation across the company’s buy-side and sell-side institutions and the global vendor community.

The appointment is a strategic decision for OpenFin, aligning with its vision to unlock opportunities for its community of users, accelerate collaboration and further enable interoperability for the benefit of all industry participants. The appointment follows the recent announcement that ING Ventures invested $10m into OpenFin to accelerate the expansion of OpenFin OS throughout the financial industry.

Adam Toms, Chief Operating Officer at OpenFin, said: “OpenFin has a strong history of building with the industry and for the industry. This ranges from the creation of the FDC3 application interoperability standards to the launch of Workspace in 2021, which was designed and built in collaboration with several global banks and asset managers to solve their common workflow challenges. Today, Workspace accelerates standardisation and openness across the industry while solving desktop and employee productivity issues at an enterprise level.”

Commenting on her appointment, Vicky Sanders said: “OpenFin is a well regarded FinTech, underpinned by strong and trusted client relationships, innovative technology and an experienced team. With a track record of solving complex workflow challenges, OpenFin’s ecosystem has grown to include 23 of the 25 global banks, leading asset managers and large and innovative software vendors. I’m excited to join at a time of strong momentum and look forward to working with such a talented team to unlock the power of OpenFin’s network while shaping digital transformation across the industry and beyond.”

Toms added: “We are delighted to have hired Vicky, who has such a proven track record of driving change. Vicky will work closely with financial institutions to improve employee empowerment, productivity, and interconnected experiences. This is more important than ever as organisations need to ensure that their teams work smarter, faster, and collaborate more effectively.”

Vicky Sanders most recently served as Chief Commercial Officer for TP ICAP Group’s Agency Execution division, where she was responsible for overseeing the commercial strategy of the Liquidnet and Coex Partners businesses. Prior to that, she co-founded RSRCHXchange in 2014, a disruptive fintech operating as an aggregator and marketplace for institutional research, leading the business through the acquisition by Liquidnet.

During her time at Liquidnet, she served as Head of Investment Analytics, having developed a new division and product delivering insights to buy-side traders and portfolio managers before Liquidnet’s acquisition by TP ICAP. In her early career, Vicky was an Executive Director at Goldman Sachs, having started her career at Merrill Lynch after graduating with honours from Harvard University.
