Global funds transaction network Calastone has appointed James Donaldson as Chief Financial Officer.

Donaldson brings significant experience to Calastone having previously served as Chief Financial Officer of the Soros-backed digital solutions provider Ciklum, leading all aspects of finance, corporate development, legal and compliance.

Prior to this he worked for the Travelocity Group in numerous roles, including Global CFO, but also as COO for Europe and Asia, and CFO for lastminute.com, managing all aspects of financial control, planning, and compliance. He qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1995.

With the recent launch of Calastone’s blockchain-enabled Distributed Market Infrastructure for funds, Donaldson will play a key role in developing the business as clients start to leverage the enhancements made possible through the new technology.

Julien Hammerson, Calastone’s Chief Executive Officer, says: “I am thrilled to welcome James to Calastone’s senior management team, and at such an exciting stage in the growth of the business. A proven leader with significant management experience at the top level, James’ expertise at the helm of several major successful growth businesses and household names will contribute to Calastone’s success as we continue to scale the business worldwide.”

Donaldson adds: “I’m delighted to be joining Calastone, and very excited to work alongside such a talented team with a real passion to improve the state of the investment funds sector. The opportunities in front of Calastone are significant and I look forward to working with the team as we build out the business, expand the product suite and grow internationally.”
