Connected services manager is promoted to the senior team after 12 years at the company.
BGL appoints head of Ecosystem
BGL Corporate Solutions has promoted its product manager of connected services, Brad Wilkinson, to head of Ecosystem.
BGL managing director Ron Lesh said that Mr Wilkinson had contributed greatly to the company in his most recent role and was well positioned to step up.
“Brad has been a valued and talented member of the BGL team for 12 years and is perfectly suited to lead BGL’s Ecosystem team into the future,” he said.
“Brad and his team were responsible for adding more than 250 data feeds, contributing to the 40,000-plus daily transactions processed through BGL’s Ecosystem.
“With Brad’s experience connecting the dots between data providers and BGL’s products, the Ecosystem team is well positioned to continue to lead the industry in connectivity in the years ahead.”
Mr Wilkinson joined BGL Corporate Solutions in 2010 and has worked in multiple roles including support consultant, data and business analyst, and most recently product manager of connected services.
“I’m super excited for the opportunity to lead the team,” he said.
“I look forward to working together with our partners to solve problems and save time for our clients.”
Mr Wilkinson has a degree in accounting, banking and finance, and a passion for software development and project management.
He is also a certified ScrumMaster (CSM), which is a framework for project management, and has experience in building relationships between data providers and various BGL products such as CAS 360, Simple Fund 360 and Simple Invest 360.
Mr Lesh said that he was excited to see employees rise up the ranks within the company, taking on advanced roles.
“We are proud to have an extraordinary talent pool at BGL that allows us to promote internally rather than seek externally for senior team members,” said Mr Lesh.
“It’s fantastic to see the team embrace opportunity and rise up the ranks at BGL.”
Founded in 1983, BGL Corporate Solutions started with only two employees and has grown to become one of the largest developers of compliance software in the world, with more than 180 employees globally.
BGL provides cloud-based company compliance management, SMSF and portfolio administration software to over 8,500 businesses in 15 countries.
Each year BGL hosts an annual event called BGL REGTECH, which allows it to connect with Ecosystem partners. The event explores the evolution of the industry from paper forms to software.
