Options, a managed services provider to the global capital markets industry, has appointed former KPMG Director, Brian McKimm as the firm’s new chief financial officer 9CFO).

In his new role, McKimm will be responsible for overseeing the development of Options’ global finance function across Europe, the US and Asia, with a particular focus on investor relations and strategic finance projects. He will also be tasked with ensuring the firm has the necessary financial management capabilities to support Options’ continued growth plans.

In his most recent role with KPMG Ireland, McKimm was Head of the firm’s Internal Audit division and served a broad range of clients both locally and internationally, in particular within the financial services and energy industries. Since leaving KPMG, Brian has served as Investment Director with Emerald Development Managers, a US-based private equity fund, and as Chief Financial Officer of ecoLegacy, a clean-tech start-up based in Dublin.

Options CEO, Nigel Kneafsey, says: “Brian is an excellent addition to the Options team and brings with him a wealth of experience in managing global finance functions and associated strategic projects. In the context of the firm’s wider standing within the financial services sector, Brian joins Options at a pivotal time as we continue to scale the company across three continents. We expect 2015 to be an exciting year in terms of new customer acquisitions and someone of Brian’s experience will prove crucial in driving this growth.”

McKimm says: “As Options’ highly attractive suite of products and services continues to gain traction in the global financial services market, the challenge of managing growth across multiple jurisdictions increases. My focus will be on ensuring that our financial management and stakeholder reporting processes are responsive to the changing demands of the business. I look forward to working with Nigel and the team, and to building on the already significant success of Options.”
