LeadingMile Consulting (“LeadingMile”), a European, full-service consultancy firm specialising in solution implementation for the alternative investment sector, is pleased to announce their expansion to the United Kingdom.
Lloyd Dean, a former eFront and Charles River Development executive, joins Amsterdam-based LeadingMile Consulting, bringing his broad experience in financial services and alternative investments to establish and expand its London office.
As the new UK Country Director for LeadingMile Consulting, Lloyd will focus on strategic offerings within the UK as well as setting up and maintaining partnerships throughout the UK and Channel Islands. Having previously worked as the Director of Implementations for Charles River Development and as Head of Professional Services for BlackRock’s eFront UK, Lloyd has accumulated over 20+ years of experience in senior management and with implementing fintech solutions across the asset management arena.
“We are extremely excited here at LeadingMile that Lloyd is joining our organisation as Country Director for the UK. We have known each other for many years, and we firmly believe that his vast experience and track record in the market will allow us to fulfil our international ambitions. Not just towards the large UK market but beyond”, says Martijn Voorhaar, founder and CEO of LeadingMile, which in the Netherlands has grown over 50% year-on-year, including in 2020.
LeadingMile aims to bring cutting edge technology to a traditional niche, an ambition where, similar to the alternative investment market itself, there is a need to expand while driving down costs. “We have operated at the front line from that perspective from the moment we launched, providing cost saving niche solutions and enabling clients to fulfil their ambitions,” says Voorhaar. “The vast experience Lloyd brings will mean we can further tailor our offerings to key clients. At the same time, we are taking a big step entering the post-Brexit UK market. We do so with great confidence, seeing how the UK is leading the way towards a post-COVID-19 society. We believe our timing is therefore right as we aim to expand our business further,” adds the LeadingMile CEO.
