Growth at Evolution continues

Evolution has made three senior appointments to strengthen its team for further growth. The advanced technology firm for the investment banking and venture capital industries has appointed Richard Hall as chief technology strategist and two senior figures in the finance industry, Larry Wood and Craig Heimark have assumed responsibility as non-executive directors.

Hall comes from Monis Software, where he was chief technology officer. Previously he was a founder member of Algorithmics in London. Wood has 40 years’ experience in the City of London, helping set up the LIFFE market and working in senior operational roles at Goldman Sachs and UBS Warburg.

Heimark was formerly chief information officer and head of strategic planning at SBC Warburg.

Wood and Heimark will be actively involved in consulting engagements with clients. They will also be advising the Evolution management team on market developments that present opportunities for Evolution’s clients.

The appointments follow a period of rapid expansion at Evolution and reinforce the company’s plans for continued growth with existing and new clients.
