He has previously led global financial services and technology companies in treasury, capital markets, retail banking, payment processing, global finance and guidance systems in companies.

David Tunnell, Chairman of OpenLink Board of Directors and a Managing Director at Hellman & Friedman, commented: “Under Mark Greene, OpenLink maintained its leading position in energy and commodities, diversified into adjacent markets, and deepened its reach into the corporate and financial services industries. With more than 30 years of financial technology and software experience and a track record of transformational success, we are delighted to have John lead the next phase of growth for OpenLink.”

John O’Malley, CEO, OpenLink, added: “I am extremely excited to have joined OpenLink, and looking forward to capitalising on a number of initiatives and investments that are already in place. OpenLink is evolving. We are serving new and existing segments, with quicker time to value, industry best practice and packaged solutions, world-class quality software, robust partnership networks and deeper relationships with our clients. Backed by Hellman & Friedman we look forward to growing our leadership position and further leveraging our resources to fuel the future of the industries we serve.”
