Chris Whiting joins SS&C in newly created role

SS&C Technologies Holdings has appointed Chris Whiting as senior director. He will lead its newly formed advisory relationship management team, reporting to Dave Welling, senior vice president and managing director of its advisory market group.

Whiting brings more than 20 years of experience as a technology applications and client engagement executive. Most recently, he served as chief operating officer at Moneta Group, playing what it describes as an instrumental role in technology strategy and implementation, brand positioning, process improvement, financial management, and regulatory compliance.

Says Welling: “The vision of SS&C’s new advisory market group is to align our business around what our clients do rather than around what products they use.  Having worked as a C-suite executive at an independent wealth management firm, Chris is the outstanding candidate to lead our efforts to strengthen and enhance the level of engagement with our advisory client base.

“This undertaking signals our continued commitment to investing in the advisory market and is representative of the enhanced offerings and additional services that our clients can expect as part of the SS&C family,” he adds. “Chris and his specialised team of advisory client relationship management experts will deliver tremendous value to our clients, providing them with the expertise and perspective that advisers need to thrive in a competitive marketplace.”
