Macrovue announces two new executive hires from Macquarie and BT
Macrovue, an investment service backed by AMP, continues to grow its executive team, announcing the appointment of Sriram Seshadri as its Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and Maz Zaman as Head of Sales.
Macrovue offers a leading-edge platform to invest in thematic portfolios of global companies. The portfolios are constructed using in-house research, giving Australian investors unprecedented access to international markets. The two new hires further bolster Macrovue’s strength in global markets.
Sriram Seshadri, formerly an Associate Director with Macquarie Group and a Senior Developer with Goldman Sachs, brings even more international expertise to Macrovue’s leadership team as its new CTO.
Seshadri has more than 20 years experience building commercially successful software for leading financial institutions. At Macquarie Group, he led teams delivering trading platform solutions for real time trading and for mid-frequency trading strategies across Australian and Asian markets. Sriram also worked as a Senior Software Engineer for Goldman Sachs where he built web solutions for the FICC and Primer Brokerage divisions. He makes the move to Macrovue from a consulting position with the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA).
Maz Zaman, Head of Sales, has an extensive background in leadership, sales and stakeholder management, having successfully led large sales teams at BT Financial Group, Link Advice and CBA. At BT Financial Group, Maz led sales teams of financial advisers in insurance, super, investments and advice. He also managed a team of business bankers at CBA, achieving high sales and service targets.
“Sriram brings a very deep knowledge of international equity markets technology to the team, which will be invaluable as we scale up our operations,” said Sid Sahgal, the CEO of Macrovue.
“We are currently commercialising and marketing our world-class investment platform and expanding it in Australia before we launch overseas. Maz has headed up large sales teams for major financial institutions with extremely impressive results, so we can’t wait to see what he will do at Macrovue.
“Together, Sriram and Maz bring great breadth and depth of talent and expertise to our executive team as we prepare to take Macrovue on the next phase of its global journey.”
