Sword Apak elevates exec to global sales manager


Sword Apak, which provides financial systems to the global asset finance and banking sectors, recently appointed Kris Turner to head up its expanding global sales efforts, where momentum has seen the company’s interest expand across the United States, Europe and Australia during the last three years.

The company highlighted that Turner has progressed from his previous role as senior client relationship manager within Sword Apak, bringing with him a deep understanding of the business’ technology along with a real empathy for the challenges clients are seeking to address in what are increasingly dynamic and often disruptive times.

“The capabilities of our technology are undoubted, but arguably it is our people, their passion and our agile process that has enabled us to form so many successful partnerships throughout recent years,” Sword Apak vice president of global sales Jeff Bunch said in a news release.

“Deeply immersed in our customer-driven culture, Kris is perfectly suited to his new role and has already made a positive impact on existing and prospective clients; he’s a real asset to us,” Bunch continued.

Reflecting on his newest challenges, Turner said, “I’m really enjoying the new role, listening to customers and prospects and helping them to make the most of our expertise. ‘Sales’ may be in my title, but in truth, I’m here making our solutions easier to buy, matching our technology to the challenges our customers are facing.”
