Aravo Solutions has announced the appointment of Anna Mazzone as Managing Director, International and Global Head of Financial Services.
Reporting to CEO Michael Saracini, and bringing over 20 years of financial services industry experience in the international markets, Ms. Mazzone will lead Aravo’s global expansion, building operations as well as direct and partner channels internationally. She will be based in Aravo’s London office.
As former Global Head of KYC Managed Services for Thomson Reuters, Ms. Mazzone founded and grew Thomson Reuters’ ORG ID KYC Managed Service. There, she led a team of more than 150 individuals and managed clients in more than 80 countries.
Anna’s deep domain expertise in Technology for Financial Markets (FinTech), Governance Risk & Compliance (GRC), Know Your Customer (KYC) and Know Your Supplier/Vendor (KYS/KYV) technologies has contributed to significant growth at companies such as Thomson Reuters, CME Group, Markit and Trunomi.
“We are fortunate to have Anna join our team at Aravo,” said Mr. Saracini, CEO, Aravo Solutions. “As an accomplished and well-respected leader in the financial services and risk management space, her strength of vision, innovation and ability to execute internationally will help accelerate our continued growth and expanding global footprint. Anna’s experience and success in launching the financial industry’s first global Know Your Customer (KYC) Managed Service, will serve our client base well, as they look towards efficiencies of scale, and her financial services expertise will support our growing roster of clients within this industry and beyond. We’re delighted to welcome Anna, who reinforces our commitment to helping customers address some of the most pressing risk and regulatory concerns of their boards.”
Ms. Mazzone says: “Third parties pose significant risk and reputational exposure to companies across all industries today. Regulators, through increased scrutiny and enforcement, are making it clear that organizations cannot delegate their responsibility to a third party. Joining Aravo will allow me to help Global 2000 organizations close their execution gap between risk and readiness through a dynamic combination of my domain expertise and Aravo’s dedicated and proven technology. I am convinced that no other provider can do what Aravo does in this space and am excited to be joining a team that is passionate about the broader social good that Aravo supports in its efforts to eliminate corruption and social injustice from supply-chain and third party relationships.”
Ms. Mazzone is on the Board of the Non-profit, Junior League of London, having supported the organization for over 14 years, on the Advisory Board for Trunomi, and is a business mentor for Level39 London Accelerator. She holds a Bachelor of Science, Finance and Insurance from the University of South Carolina – Darla Moore School of Business.
