Microgen and Touchstone announce appointment of David Thorpe as Non-Executive Director

Microgen Financial Services and Touchstone Wealth Management have today announced the appointment of David Thorpe as a non-executive director of the combined group.

In November 2019, Microgen and Touchstone announced the merger of the two companies to create the global market leader in the trust and corporate services market. Backed by Silverfleet Capital, the merger was completed in February this year.

Keith Hale, Executive Chairman of Microgen and Touchstone, comments: “David brings to the board a rare blend of experience in both technology businesses as well as our core target market of corporate services, trust and fund administration, having previously been the President of EDS Europe and Chairman of Ocorian for example.”

David Thorpe comments: “I’m delighted to join the merged group of Microgen and Touchstone at a very exciting time for the industry. I can see the team are extremely well placed to address the rapidly changing needs of corporate services, trust and alternative fund administration by offering the most innovative best-in-class technology in the market.”
