AlphaCert appoints new Chief Operating Officer

Investment management product company AlphaCert Labs have appointed Michelle Poulton as Chief Operating Officer, as the company gears up for global growth.

A highly experienced Project and Operations Manager, Michelle has more 20 years of IT industry experience and has been a key part of the AlphaCert Labs project team since the development of their flagship product, AlphaCert, began four years ago.

The AlphaCert platform is a purpose-built, customisable enterprise data management platform that provides a single source of truth of investment management data to investment managers. In addition to increasing accuracy and transparency of data, AlphaCert reduces risk and enables better decision making.

AlphaCert Labs CEO Phil Pietersen is thrilled by the appointment and believes Michelle has the right mix of operational experience, industry and product knowledge to help AlphaCert Labs meet growing global demand for proven investment management software.

“Michelle has a proven track record of establishing efficient and effective business operations. She’s been an integral part of developing the AlphaCert platform to date, and has the drive and determination to help take our business to the next level,” says Phil.

Michelle says she’s proud of what the company has achieved so far and is excited by the opportunity to play a leading role in shaping future growth. “I was fortunate enough to be there from the beginning as Project Manager when the AlphaCert product was simply an idea and we had just secured funding from Callaghan Innovations to start development,” says Michelle.

“Working with our expert software developers to bring our vision for AlphaCert to life, has been incredibly exciting; and delivering it to our first major customer is a massive achievement for the whole team,” says Michelle. “Being part of this journey is a privilege and I can’t wait to see what we achieve next.”

Michelle says the success of AlphaCert is being driven by increasing demand for secure, reliable, software solutions, which make it easier for the investment management industry to manage their complex investment data.

“Organisations who are willing to embrace all the benefits of technology, will be able to make faster decisions and achieve the best returns for their customers, says Michelle.
