LONDON -- Gresham Computing plc is pleased to announce the appointment of Eric Sepkes as Executive Chairman with immediate effect.

Eric is an exceptionally well known figure in the global banking community, for many years having been right at the heart of international payments, cash management and trade finance. Eric completed 38 years with Citigroup where he held various management positions, including Operations and Treasury and Cash Management, and most recently held a senior strategic role in Global Transaction Services. Eric has been involved in Payment Infrastructures since 1985, when he was responsible for managing Citibanks entry into CHAPS (Clearing House Automatic Payment System) where he was director for 12 years and Chairman for 3 years. He was Chairman and Deputy Chairman of the Euro Banking Association between 1994 and 2005. He was the founder and coordinator of the European Payments Group (formerly Heathrow Group) and was a member of both APACS (the UK trade association for payments and for those institutions that deliver payment services to customers) and the European Council.

Commenting on his appointment, Eric Sepkes, Chairman, said:
“I am delighted to join the Board of Gresham at this point of flux in world markets because with change, comes opportunity. We are in an age where demand for real-time information is clear and yet largely unfulfilled in many areas of both the banking and corporate markets. I am excited to be taking on this new challenge and joining a team that has a track record of innovation, development and delivery of market leading real-time financial solutions. Gresham has done the heavy lifting in getting these solutions to market and I now intend to rapidly increase Gresham’s profile and ensure that the demands for real-time financial information are met.”
