Droit announces the appointment of Craig Butterworth as Chief Commercial Officer.
Reporting to Brock Arnason, Founder and Chief Executive, Craig joins the Droit executive team to lead the firm’s commercial activities. Based in London with global responsibility, Mr. Butterworth will play a critical role in accelerating Droit’s growth through increased strategic partnerships, expanded client relationships and greater brand awareness.
“We are delighted to welcome Craig to Droit,” said Brock Arnason. “Our unique market-leading position will benefit greatly from Craig’s vision, commercial drive and passion for digital transformation. Droit provides the perfect platform for leveraging Craig’s deep
industry and technology experience in growing our business.”
Craig joins Droit from Symphony where he was Global Head of Sales and Account Management. Craig brings over 20 years of experience in capital markets having previously held Head of Sales roles at RBS, State Street and RBC. In addition, while at Nomura, Craig launched and was globally responsible for their Client Ecosystem program, a front-to-back digital transformation initiative spanning their Global Markets business. Craig started his career at Goldman Sachs after receiving a BSc (Hons) in Economics from the University of Warwick.
Butterworth commented, “Any successful digital transformation strategy needs technology which makes the act of regulatory decision-making profoundly simple, intelligent, fast, repeatable, auditable and entirely automated. Droit’s ability to provide market-leading decision-making capability is going to become ever more critical for firms to provide the highest levels of client service, all whilst staying on the right side of the rules. I firmly believe Droit is the right firm at the right time, and for that reason, I couldn’t be happier to be joining Droit in this next phase of the company’s growth.”
