FinClear, the Australian clearing, settlement and wealth management technology and service provider, today announced Tony Lynch had joined as Chief Commercial Officer.

Mr Lynch, who has been involved as a Director since FinClear’s inception, said the decision to join in a fulltime capacity had been made as FinClear reached a new growth trajectory.

“FinClear has grown rapidly over the past year both in terms of profile and client acquisition,” he said. “As Chief Commercial Officer my role is to maintain the momentum and help steer the business as we increase our market share and expand our product and service offerings.”

Mr Lynch comes to FinClear from a distinguished career in financial services across Australia and Europe, specialising in wealth management, broking and advisory. His most recent fulltime role was as CFO at Pershing, and he continues in a small number of external board positions.

CEO David Ferrall said he was delighted to welcome Tony to the FinClear office. “Tony’s guidance has been invaluable as FinClear has grown from an idea to a thriving business,” he said. “Having him on the team fulltime will be fantastic, and we’ve been able to set some very aggressive growth targets for 2020 knowing he will be here to support them.”

Mr Lynch will be based in FinClear’s Sydney office.
