iLex expands EMEA team with Kieran O’Hora joining as Sales Manager (EMEA)

iLex is embarking on a season of rapid expansion and growing deployment in the EMEA region and has welcomed Kieran O’Hora as Sales Manager (EMEA).

Kieran carries over 20 years of experience in Sales & Account Management and has an excellent track record of delivering leading-edge data & market infrastructure solutions to financial institutions.

Before iLex, Kieran was EMEA Head of Sales & Account Management (LPC, IFR & PFI) at Refinitiv and Global Head of Account Management at Thomson Reuters, where he led a global team of account managers and served some of the world’s largest institutions.

In his role at iLex, Kieran will drive iLex’s growth strategy in the region by cultivating the fintech’s presence and relationships with banks and institutional loan market participants based in EMEA.

“Institutional loan markets are vital to the global economy yet comes with major pain points such as inefficiencies from manual processes and fragmentation from the entrance of non-bank lenders,” said Kieran. “I am joining at a time when the role of digitisation has never been clearer in bringing added liquidity, efficiency and more to the large EMEA loan market.”

Kieran joins iLex’s EMEA team in London, which is led by co-founder and Head of Business Development, Arnaud Teissier, along with loan market specialists Daniele Iacovone and Dipak Karki.
