Evert-Jan ten Brundel is a market data consultant and heads up the Consultancy team at Screen. In addition, he helps financial services firms solve problems in the market data management area, whether this is in line management (“run the bank”), project management (“change the bank”) or interim management. It often means being the linking pin between the business side and IT: understanding how the business works, what they want to achieve, and what this means for the IT function.
His work as a market data consultant involves much more than just recording user requirements, managing Requests for Proposals and negotiating vendor contracts: he builds an in-depth understanding of the bank’s business model, the role of the divisions in it, their need for systems, services and applications, and the budget that is available.
Moreover, he knows that it is about managing people’s expectations within those requirements, and getting the best solution for the bank. Speaking various languages fluently, Evert-Jan sees the whole of Europe as his territory.
Prior to joining Screen, Evert-Jan held positions ranging from customer service, product management, finance management to general management at Thomson Reuters’ Datastream, Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) and IHS Global Insight.
He holds a BA from HEAO/Windesheim University in Zwolle.
