Broadridge Appoints Ian Strudwick as Head of Asia-Pacific to Lead Regional Expansion Strategy
Broadridge Financial Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:BR), a global Fintech leader, today announced the appointment of Ian Strudwick as General Manager and Head of Asia-Pacific (APAC), effective immediately. His appointment comes as part of Broadridge’s strategy to capitalise on opportunities the firm sees for strong business growth in the post-pandemic recovery and beyond and demonstrates its continued commitment to the region.
Strudwick brings 23 years of extensive experience in the financial services and technology sector, with over 16 years spent in leadership roles for global and regional teams across capital markets, trade finance and business services. He joins from TD Securities, where he was most recently Managing Director and Head of Global Operations and Business Services for APAC.
“Financial businesses in Asia are grappling with trends around digitisation, mutualisation, and data and analytics while operating in times of increasing complexity,” said Samir Pandiri, President of Broadridge International. “Capital markets present plenty of growth opportunities, but firms must also navigate increasing challenges from new regulations and market changes.”
“Ian joins at a transformational time for our clients in the region. They will benefit from his deep cross-market industry expertise, as Broadridge supports them in the adoption and application of next-generation technologies. We are delighted to have him on board as we continue our organic and acquisitive growth path both in Asia and globally.”
Strudwick is based in Singapore and will report to Samir Pandiri, President of Broadridge International. He will lead Broadridge’s expansion strategies in Asia, and will be responsible for driving sustained growth of the firm in its key APAC markets of Singapore, Hong Kong, Australia and Japan, with ownership for Broadridge’s strategy and business development, implementation and execution in the region.
“Broadridge is a global firm at the forefront of innovative next-generation technologies and, as such, very well-positioned to support companies at a time when we are seeing an evolutionary leap in the speed of business technology adoption,” said Strudwick. “I am excited to build on the customer-centric culture and lead the high-quality teams in Asia to help clients meet the moment by optimising operations and unlocking growth through Broadridge’s leading industry solutions.”
Strudwick’s appointment builds on the recent joining of David Ingleson as Chief Operating Officer for APAC earlier this year, further enhancing the APAC leadership bench as the global Fintech leader continues to support APAC clients to grow their operations.
Broadridge, which has operated in Asia for over two decades, supports financial services clients in business transformation, revenue scaling, and reducing costs and operations complexity through the onboarding of new technologies, including The ABCDs of Innovation® – AI, blockchain, the Cloud and digital.
