Australian technology provider Iress has hired one of its Sydney-based directors as UK managing director.
Phil Quin-Conroy (pictured) joined Iress two years ago and was general manager of lending technology in Australia. He will assume the managing director role of the UK business this coming June.
He will replace Simon Badley who joined Avelo as commercial director in 2011 and also held the role of chief executive between 2012 and 2013 after which it was acquired and merged into Iress.
Commenting on his appointment, Quin-Conroy says: “Iress holds a strong position in the UK and I’m looking forward to working with the team to build on our achievements by delivering outstanding outcomes for clients and continue strong growth for Iress.”
Quin-Conroy previously worked in London between 2004 and 2006 as head of business consulting for National Australia Bank superannuation and advice subsidiary, MLC.

Iress saw increases in both revenue and profits in 2018, with 7 per cent overall driven by its UK business.
