Swiss banking software provider Temenos has appointed industry veteran Craig Bennett as the head of sales in the Asia-Pacific region, giving him the task of increasing the company's market share in emerging and established economies.

A statement from the company said Bennett had worked in the region since 1992 and had worked in areas like treasury capital markets, retail banking, risk management, retail payments and corporate banking.

His area of operations will not include Japan.

Temenos has provided its software to two Australian challenger banks — Volt Bank and Judo Capital — which launched operations in the cloud. Sri Lanka's third largest bank, Sampath Bank, also uses Temenos' front-end solution.

“I am delighted to join the Temenos team. It is a great opportunity at a dynamic and growing company that has its finger on the pulse in the region of the rapidly growing financial services industry," Bennett said.

"I look forward to building on the company’s Asia-Pacific expansion and growth plans, and helping banks and financial institutions with their digital transformation strategies.

"Temenos has the world's leading banking software, which is a testament to the hard work of my new colleagues, and I am excited for the challenge of promoting our technology in the region.”

Temenos Asia-Pacific managing director Martin Frick said: "Craig is a great fit for our dynamic, growing team. With nearly three decades in the industry and in Asia, he has unrivalled experience in this space, and has seen first-hand the rate of transformation in the region both of the banking industry and of technology in this sector.

"I look forward to working with Craig as we continue to offer our customers our best-in-class product offering and services, and help our clients react to changing customer demands, the shift to the cloud and new entrants in the marketplace.”
