Neha Reiss joins the team

We’re delighted to announce that Neha Reiss has joined Nous as a consultant advising on strategy, business development, funding and general operations.

Neha joins us in the UK from Quantifeed, a Hong Kong based fin-tech startup where she held a joint CFO and COO role. At Quantifeed she led the fund raising efforts, worked on business development and was instrumental in setting up the finance and operations infrastructure.

Before Quantifeed, Neha spent a 15-year career in international investment banking, most recently as Liquidity Project Manager in Hong Kong for Nomura. She has also worked in Risk Analysis and Management for Merrill Lynch both in London and Hong Kong, and began her banking career as a Treasury Analyst at Lehman Brothers in New York in 1997.

Here at Nous, Neha will take the lead on financial operations – financial projections, financial reporting, payroll, payables, receivables and liquidity planning. She will also play a key role securing expansion capital and developing commercial relationships with hedge funds and other customers for Nous’ data feed products.

We are absolutely thrilled to have Neha’s experience added to the bench as we move into our next stage of growth — more on that very soon!

Number Five is alive!

We’re delighted to be able to introduce the fifth member of our team, Mick Horgan. He has 15 years’ experience in web and server-side development, in Investment Banking, Telecoms and other industries.

Mick’s skills will be perfect to help us make sure the app works on as many devices as possible. He’ll also be helping scale the server side and build some features we’ve been wanting to add for a long time.

Mick is based in the UK. One of our goals when creating Nous was to build a distributed company that could hire employees from any location and support employees working from any location. We already have two offices in Asia and things seem to be working great so far, so this was a good opportunity to make sure the model can expand further.

Mick: welcome to the team. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Note: we did not hire this Number 5
