SimCorp selects Stan Drasky as cloud expert for NAUS 2022 panel

In September 2022 Elgin White Director Stan Drasky will take a seat on stage for SimCorp’s thought leadership panel at the firm’s 2022 North American User Summit (NAUS).

The event will be held at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort near Austin, Texas and the “Navigate the Transition to the Cloud and Everything-as-a-Service” panel will run on September 20, 2022, from 11.45 am to 12.30 pm.

Renowned for his expertise in investment management business transformation and migration to the cloud, Stan will sit alongside Joshua Tuberville, Principal, Finance Technology at Fannie Mae, Aimee Scott, Investment Accounting Supervisor at The Retirement Systems of Alabama and Omar Syed, Vice President Global Asset Management at Scotiabank. The panel will be moderated by Jakob Højland,  Commercial Director, Cloud Services & SaaS at SimCorp.

SimCorp clients and partners will learn about the increased adoption of cloud and technology-enabled services, and their benefits of scale, flexibility and operational efficiency, which allows greater focus on core business.

Stan will explain why he believes that migration to the cloud is about so much more than technology infrastructure. It spans everything from operational resilience and stability to innovation and efficiency, even improving your success at acquiring and retaining the right talent for your business.

Prior to joining Elgin White in August 2020, Stan was responsible for enterprise-scale cloud deployments within several global investment management organisations including State Street (Chief Information Officer, EMEA) and Northern Trust (Head of IT, EMEA/Global Director of Fund Administration Technology).
