Mr. Apostoli has an excellent track record serving Calypso clients all over the world in his roles previously at First Derivatives and the vendor.

“George’s track record with clients is really superb and he has a driven passion for his business and how it will serve clients in the market. Adding to our Openlink (ION) Findur capabilities is critical to the firm in order to continue to grow new logo clients and we are very confident in George’s abilities to do just that” said CEO, Sean Kilpatrick.
Prior to joining Lucido Group, Mr. Apostoli held the position of VP for the Vendor Services Group at First Derivatives. Prior to that, he worked in industry side roles at BAML and HSBC and was a Director in the Professional Services organization at Calypso, establishing the South American operations.
“Working with the Lucido team is a great fit for my background given their focus on customer delivery and ensuring client needs are met”, commented Mr. Apostoli on his appointment. “There are a lot of opportunities to provide strategic advisory to clients and help them maximize the value proposition of new and existing systems. This is a model that Lucido has grown significantly with other platforms and is well suited for the Calypso space as well – I am excited to be a part of that as well as their next generation software plans”.
