Brussels/London, 12 April 2024 – Taskize, a provider of inter-company workflow to the financial services industry, has today announced that its CEO, Philip Slavin has decided to step down.  James Pike, currently Head of Business Development has been appointed as the interim CEO to provide continuity in the leadership of Taskize. A search process has been launched to appoint a permanent successor to the role.

Taskize, which is fully owned by Euroclear, is a secure and easy to use web-based platform designed for quick, efficient problem solving between counterparties. Its secure Bubble environment and Smart Directory allows clients to raise, route, track and resolve operational issues resulting in improved response time and increased accuracy. 

Mr Slavin co founded the company 12 years ago with John O’Hara and during his tenure as CEO the Taskize network has almost doubled to 600 clients operating out of 88 countries. Through the efforts of the Smart Adoption campaign, Taskize now ranks above email and phone with a 98% client satisfaction across Euroclear’s premium clients. The platform also supports a growing number of non-Euroclear workflows.

Antonio Queiroz, Chief Digital Officer, Euroclear and Chairman of Taskize said: “I would like to sincerely thank Philip for both his energy and leadership not only as Taskize CEO but as co-founder of this innovative solution. He has worked tirelessly to cement Taskize’s position as Euroclear’s preferred client service channel. His passion, enthusiasm and client-focus has been a driving force in making the Taskize vision of becoming a single platform to fully optimise workflow solutions across the industry a reality.”

Philippe Laurensy, Head of Product, Strategy and Innovation, Euroclear added: “Taskize is a market leader in its space and fully aligns to our group strategy of creating efficiencies through innovation to grow the market. We look forward to continuing to support the next phase of the Taskize growth story which is to further align its inter-company workflows and ecosystem to Euroclear’s data-enabled services strategy. This will allow us to offer our clients and the wider community a world-class platform for providing actionable insights to improve operational effectiveness and control.”
