June 03, 2021 - In a major development for the company, United Fintech has announced today that the FinTech accelerator is expanding into the US with the appointment of Mark Lawrence from Goldman Sachs as Director and Head of Americas.

Mark Lawrence joins United Fintech following 14 years at Goldman Sachs in senior sales roles in London, New York and Hong Kong, latterly as LATAM Head of EFICC (Electronic Fixed Income, Currencies and Commodities) with responsibility for also running e-FX Sales in the Americas and, prior to that, Head of EFICC APAC Sales. He has also held roles in e-FX Sales and GSET Sales, focusing on Equities and Futures electronic distribution.

Based in New York, Mark Lawrence will work closely with United Fintech’s London-based sales team, reporting into Tom Robinson, to help scale and distribute the fintech firms acquired by United Fintech.

We now have the power and presence to deliver a global offering.

“I am thrilled that Mark has chosen to join United Fintech. He has an impressive international profile, a strong track record in sales and a wide network of contacts worldwide.

We want to work closely with our financial institution client base to provide elegant solutions for automating workflows, easing onboarding, delivering efficiencies and saving costs. This refreshing and positive approach is hugely appealing to me and defines United Fintech.

“I worked closely with Tom when we were both at Goldman Sachs and have known Christian for many years. I’ve always been impressed by Christian’s incredible vision and energy and the talent with which he surrounds himself. This is an exciting opportunity to board the United Fintech ‘rocketship’, leverage my 14 years’ experience at Goldman Sachs and help play a major role in the journey ahead.”
