Bravura appoints CEO to replace Tony Klim

Bravura Solutions has promoted its global chief operating officer Nick Parsons to chief executive, replacing Tony Klim, who will step down in September.

Parsons joined the platform technology provider in 2007 from DST Global Solutions where he was chief technology officer.

He joined as CTO at first, before undertaking a range of senior leadership roles and moving into the global chief operating officer role in 2020.

Parsons said: “It is an honour to succeed Tony as CEO, it has been a real pleasure working with him. Under Tony’s outstanding leadership Bravura has enjoyed excellent growth, entering new markets and bringing new products on stream.

"Bravura is strategically well-positioned for the future, and I look forward to working together with my management team and colleagues globally to deliver exceptional results for our clients and our shareholders.”

He added the firm was seeing considerable change in its core markets across the value chain.

“Whether it be the shift to vertical integration and increasing distribution accessibility in the UK, or the thrust to automate rather than outsource as in Australia and New Zealand, Bravura is well positioned to provide solutions. 

“Our clients are looking to deliver greater value to their customers through digital offerings, speed to market and cost reduction – we deliver this through our expertise in innovative technologies such as artificial intelligence, microservices and cloud.”

Klim added: “It has been a great honour for me to serve Bravura over the past 13 years, including 10 years as CEO. During my tenure, Bravura has grown into a highly regarded and deeply trusted partner to some of the world’s most important financial institutions.

"I am immensely proud of what our company has become. I have no doubt that Bravura’s future remains very bright.”

The firm has appointed Megan Owen, formerly chief operating officer, as global chief operating officer.

Owen previously worked for Capgemini as a programme director, where she was for 17 years, as well as time spent as head of digital consulting at Dell EMC and managing director at Sopra Steria.
