OpenFin has appointed Paul Walker (pictured), former co-head of Technology for Goldman Sachs, to the firm’s Board of Directors. The newest board member joins six other financial industry leaders in helping to provide guidance and insight to a pioneering company focused on the underpinnings of technology in capital markets.

At Goldman Sachs, Walker most recently served in a senior technical role as co-head of the Technology Division. He joined Goldman Sachs in 2001, and during his career led many of Goldman’s efforts in risk, analytics, clearing and systems architecture. Paul is an active philanthropist, working with organisations that provide opportunity and social capital to young adults through access to education, science and critical reasoning. He earned a PhD in Physics and an MSc in Physics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a BA in Physics from Cornell University.
 
Walker says: “Open, mutually agreed-upon standards for the secure and robust delivery of applications are critical for the financial services industry, and OpenFin and is well positioned to be the leader in the space. Theirs is an ambitious goal, and I look forward to helping deliver an open industry -wide platform that effects real change and helps define a new standard of security and efficiency.”
 
Mazy Dar, CEO of OpenFin, says: “Paul’s experience at Goldman building risk systems and co-heading the firm’s 9000 person technology organisation gives him a unique perspective on how our customers will benefit from the OpenFin platform. His depth of experience in the details of application development and analytics and his advocacy for open source software will help make our product more robust, secure, and innovative.”
