Burgiss names new head of international sales

Burgiss, a Hoboken-based provider of investment decision support tools for private capital, announced Thursday that Howard Rees has been named head of international sales.

“Hiring Howard is representative of our commitment to providing the highest quality service to our clients worldwide. Burgiss has over 30 years of experience working with investors and advisors globally, and opening our London office was a natural expansion of our footprint in Europe bringing us closer to our clients,” Jim Kocis, founder and CEO of Burgiss, said.

Rees will be based at Burgiss’ London office and report directly to Rob Ranges, global head of client coverage.

“Howard’s experience in financial software and data management, market knowledge and experience building and leading teams are aligned with our global client objectives. We’re excited to have Howard here to help us help our clients in all markets,” Ranges said.

Rees, who has more than 20 years of sales experience, most recently served as global head of sales at Bloomberg PolarLake. He began his career at Sage Software.

“Joining Burgiss represents an opportunity to bring an established leader, with a focus on value-added solutions in the private capital space, to the markets and investors I know well,” Howard said. “The quality of Burgiss’ data, analytics and tools sets the firm apart in its ability to help clients make better investment decisions.”
