Neil Thornburn joins Kurtosys as Head of Customer Solutions and Strategy

Kurtosys is excited to announce the appointment of Neil Thornburn as Head of Customer Solutions and Strategy,  effective September 2021.  Neil is an experienced industry leader with a career spanning 22 years across digital and marketing.

Neil has extensive knowledge of digital strategy and transformation with particular focus on the Asset and Wealth management sector.  Neil previously served as Head of EMEA digital at J.P. Morgan Asset Management and more recently supported Lombard Odier with their digital journey.

One of Neil’s focus points will be to help Kurtosys customers get maximum value from their investment in our platform,  supporting critical integrations of process for sales,  regulation and client services.  He will also be supporting them with their longer-term digital strategies.



I am very excited to join the Kurtosys senior management team, not least because their team culture and belief in value is closely aligned to mine. With that value being top of my priority list, I will be seeking to build on the already strong partnerships with our customers to solve those difficult problems that can really help make a difference to their business, in turn adding real value to their internal teams and external clients.
