Cherry takes on SFTR role at Pirum


Clearstream’s James Cherry has moved to Pirum Systems to focus on its Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) and central counterparty products.

Cherry began his role as business development manager in April and reports to Philip Morgan.

Pirum partnered with IHS Markit in February to build a SFTR reporting solution by the end of 2017.

Cherry’s role will also involve promoting Pirum’s fixed income products. He will continue to be based in London.

At Clearstream, Cherry was vice president for global funding and financing for just under three years.

Speaking on the appointment, a Pirum spokesperson said: "Pirum is delighted to welcome James Cherry on board. He will be working for phil morgan in the business development team."

"He will be assisting us with our SFTR, CPP and trading venue connectivity, as well as all other expansion areas."

"James brings a wealth of knowledge with him and we are especially excited about his connections in the fixed income sector where we are seeing significant interest in our product suite, including SFTR reporting."
