trade ledgerTrade Ledger, the global technology provider for the commercial banking and financial services industry, has announced three senior appointments, further underpinning its ambitious expansion plans. Jarrad Hubble joins in a new role of Chief Revenue Officer for Trade Ledger’s global operations. Rikard af Ekenstam has been appointed as Managing Director, Europe, also a new role for the fast-growing business. A third new role has been created to underpin Trade Ledger’s APAC growth ambitions: Alan Beattie has been appointed as Executive Director, APAC.

Jarrad’s focus is on building the global sales and business development functions at Trade Ledger. Most recently Managing Director at NatWest Markets, he oversaw the £250m international payments business, developing solutions for many of the world’s largest ecommerce marketplaces.

Rikard af Ekenstam’s experience, encompassing both the banking and research arenas, adds another important facet to the Trade Ledger executive team, with a particular focus on growing the company’s footprint across Europe. Prior to joining Trade Ledger, Rikard was Managing Director at OakNorth, the UK based bank and tech company backed by GIC and SoftBank, focusing on business development and corporate development.

Alan Beattie brings a wealth of international financial services experience, underpinned by strong strategic thinking. He spent 25 plus years with HSBC in a variety of senior executive roles including as Global CEO of Private Wealth Solutions, Regional Head of Commercial Banking in Latin America, and Deputy CEO Europe.

“The appointment of Jarrad, Rikard and Alan into these new positions in our executive team gives us the strength and depth to drive our international expansion as well as, importantly, improving access to finance for SMEs and mid-market corporates globally,” said Martin McCann, co-founder and CEO of Trade Ledger.

“Jarrad will work closely with me on continuing to strengthen Trade Ledger’s position as a trusted global lending technology brand. Rikard´s extensive experience in banking and analytics research coupled with long established relationships with financial institutions will help us build our presence throughout Europe. And Alan’s wealth of experience in financial services will be valuable in growing our footprint globally.”
