Professional – Personal

John is an internationally seasoned business leader whose 23-year career has afforded him the opportunity to operate across five continents and over 80 countries globally. Having held leadership positions both in Fortune 500 companies and multi-million-dollar FinTech start-ups, he has extensive operational and commercial expertise and is well accustomed to building businesses and leading teams to deliver operational excellence.

Prior to joining IQ-EQ, John was Managing Director for Asia Pacific with BlackRock’s alternative investment software provider, eFront. Before that, he spent 10 years with BNY Mellon in Singapore and London as Managing Director of EMEA & APAC, and Head of Business Development for its Asia Pacific Asset Servicing division.

While at BNY Mellon he also sat on the firm’s Asia Pacific Executive and Operating committees, on its Asset Servicing Global Executive Committee, and on the boards of multiple companies. In addition, John has previously held international management roles with Advent Software (part of SS&C) and Linedata Services, further evidencing his strong credentials in investment servicing technologies.

In his spare time, John likes travelling, cooking, exercising, deep-sea fishing, and is a huge fan of history with more than 300 books in his collection. John enjoys mentoring people and finds it rewarding to see people excel in areas that were once outside of their comfort zone.

Working with IQ-EQ has been seamless – you and your team understand our business, advise us appropriately, and handle your side of our collective partnership so that we can focus on making good investment decisions. Evan Gibson SVP, Merchants Capital
