Mr. Canfield comes to LiquidityBook from Broadridge Financial Solutions, where he spent seven years after joining the firm following its 2012 acquisition of Paladyne Systems. Most recently he served as Senior Director of Product Management and headed a global team of 40 developers and product specialists. Prior to Paladyne he served as a Senior Business Consultant for Eze Software, working with its hedge fund client base to develop the firm’s long-term strategic product road map.
Commenting on the hire, Chief Revenue Officer Sean Sullivan said: “More and more, clients are turning to next-generation systems like ours to replace legacy OMS platforms. That typically means considerable work to meet their particular workflow and process needs, which our fully SaaS-based platform can accommodate seamlessly. We’re thrilled to further build out our product group with the addition Ryan, who will lead the way in delivering best-in-class investment management solutions built to match our clients’ unique demands.”
Mr. Canfield added: “I’ve spent the better part of my career working with buy-side clients to design and deliver technology solutions crafted to meet their specific needs, but the ability to effect these client-driven enhancements at LiquidityBook is like nothing I’ve previously experienced. I couldn’t be more excited to get started with the LiquidityBook client service, product and technology teams and begin working to provide highly-tailored solutions to our growing roster of users.”
