Susan Peters has joined Sharegain as Head of Operations Americas, the latest move in her 30-year career in securities finance and capital markets.
Susan brings with her deep expertise in agency lending, formerly as the CEO and Co-Founder of eSecLending and as Vice President at State Street.
“I’m very excited to join Sharegain,” said Susan. “Sharegain have a great team, a powerful product and are best placed to bring securities lending into the digital age and drive wider adoption.”
“20 years ago, the technology wasn’t ready; now it is. I only wish I’d had it throughout my career.”
Boaz Yaari, Sharegain CEO and Founder, said: “We’re thrilled to have Susan onboard. Susan has the Sharegain DNA and brings a wealth of experience and complementing synergies to our team. This, alongside her remarkable execution abilities, will inevitably contribute to our successful expansion into North America.”
Sharegain builds its US presence
Susan’s appointment follows a significant uptick in demand for Sharegain’s solutions from US-based financial institutions.
Susan will be focused on growing Sharegain’s US-based team in 2021 to support this demand. She’ll work closely with the group’s CEO Boaz Yaari and US-based board member Alex Ehrlich, former Global Co-Head of Prime Brokerage at Morgan Stanley.
Boaz added: “The COVID-19 pandemic has been a major catalyst to our business, so now’s the right time to bring forward our global expansion plans.”
“Susan’s experience and her network within the industry will play a critical role in building our North America operations.”
