Comyno has appointed Walter Kraushaar as head of sales and advisory business.

Kraushaar will oversee all aspects of Comyno’s advisory business and will establish a strong sales and advisory team to cope with the growing customer demand for the company’s business and infrastructure solutions for the securities finance markets.

He will join on 1 January 2018 after finishing a sabbatical year and will report to Markus Büttner, founder and CEO of Comyno.

Kraushaar was previously head of treasury and securities lending at MFG and also served as a managing director at DekaBank and Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein.

Büttner said: “We are excited about Walter Kraushaar’s addition to the Comyno team. He brings the proven track record of success we believe that we need to achieve our goals and grow our business and we look forward to his leadership as we continue to strengthen and expand our sales and advisory business.”
