Capitolis, today announces the appointment of two senior executives to its executive management team. Lindsey Baptiste joins the SaaS platform as senior vice president of finance and Hen Lotan as chief of staff.
According to a statement, the new hires will “support Capitolis in its next phase of growth and play a key role in advancing the company’s mission to transform the capital markets through its collaborative technology and platform”.
Baptiste will oversee all finance activities, including financial planning and analysis, accounting, treasury, systems and billing, as well as support corporate governance. Lotan will manage Capitolis’ strategy, process and business performance, analyse strategic opportunities and measure business outcomes.
Baptiste joins Capitolis following roles at both startups and large financial institutions. She started her career at Morgan Stanley in equity capital markets before expanding into fixed income capital markets over the course of five years. She then worked at MediaMath, Inc, an AdTech startup, where she held positions in revenue and professional services operations, and served as the international head of finance.
Prior to joining Capitolis, Lotan spent eight years with Boston Consulting Group, where he served as principal and a lead member of the firm’s financial institutions practice, spearheading a variety of growth strategy engagements. He also led the firm’s thought leadership research group – the BCG Henderson Institute – where he managed the development of BCG’s intellectual property on technology and strategy. Before BCG, Lotan served as a senior associate at KPMG Somekh Chaikin on their valuation services team in Tel Aviv.
“I am thrilled to welcome Lindsey and Hen to the Capitolis team. Their expertise will be instrumental as we continue on our high growth trajectory and reimagine capital markets for the benefit of all market participants,” says Gil Mandelzis, CEO and founder of Capitolis.
The new hires follow a year of record growth for Capitolis, which includes the recent completion of a strategic investment from Citi, JP Morgan and State Street.
