Bravura Solutions appoints Head of Professional Services for Australia

Sydney, 25 July 2011 (ASX: BVA) – Bravura Solutions Limited (Bravura) – a leading global supplier of transfer agency and wealth management software applications and professional services – has appointed Mr Jon Alder as its Head of Professional Services for Australia.

Based in the Sydney office and reporting to Jason Tong, Bravura’s Chief Operating Officer for Global Wealth Management, Jon’s role will primarily be overseeing Sonata client implementations, beginning with Russell Investments, which recently signed a contract to use Sonata to administer its Private Investment Series.

Jon will also be responsible for ensuring the successful delivery and continuous improvement of implementations, client satisfaction and business development through timely and professional completion of projects and provision of products.

Tong said, “Jon has exceptionally broad operational and project implementation expertise, as well as many years’ experience in delivering innovative, strategic projects that drive business growth.

“Two clients have already chosen Sonata as their administration platform and we are seeing increasing interest from superannuation, life insurance and investment organisations. It was important for us to find the right person to fill this role, with the requisite skillset to focus on successful client implementations that run on time and to budget. We are delighted to have Jon on board.”

Prior to joining Bravura Solutions, Jon worked for SS&C Technologies (SS&C) for three years as the Head of Operations and Professional Services. In this role he was responsible for managing consultancy, client management and system support for SS&C’s investment management software solutions in Australia.

Jon is currently completing his Masters in Business Administration (Finance), and is accredited in both Six Sigma® and PRINCE2® methodologies. Jon commences his role with Bravura Solutions on 1 August 2011.
