Xceptor appoints Craig Nickerson as Chief Financial Officer
Xceptor, the intelligent automation platform for financial markets, has appointed Craig Nickerson (pictured) as Chief Financial Officer, effective January 2024.
Craig supports the further strengthening of the Xceptor leadership team following the appointment of Fleur Sohtz as Chief Marketing Officer and Nikki Feare as Chief Human Resources Officer earlier this year.
Craig brings an impressive and longstanding background in leading finance operations for global software companies. With over 20 years of experience, he has held leadership roles in several private equity-backed companies, including RSA Security, AFS Technologies (acquired by TELUS), Insightsoftware, the SAVO Group (acquired by Seismic) and Applied Global Technologies Inc.
Reporting to Xceptor CEO Michiel Verhoeven, Craig will join both the Xceptor Executive Leadership Team and Board, partnering closely with the business to execute on the firm’s growth strategy and optimize value creation. He will also manage investor relations.
Michiel Verhoeven said, “We are thrilled to have Craig join our team. He is an accomplished, internationally experienced CFO with a consistent track record in enhancing shareholder value. His dynamic, forward-thinking approach to both business and financial strategy will be central to our continued growth as we further develop our data automation capabilities, grow our client base and develop new product offerings.”
Craig Nickerson expressed his enthusiasm for his new role, saying, “Xceptor’s data automation platform and its ability to manage the most complex, unstructured data are unparalleled. It’s exciting to join the team and the company as it enters its next phase of growth. Being associated with a firm that has a reputation for scalable, trusted technology, and is supported by industry leaders and top-tier firms, is truly rewarding. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to play a role in this pivotal phase of evolution, contributing to Xceptor’s ongoing financial and operational success.”
