Technology provider Finantix announced this week it has named Christine Ciriani as chief executive officer.
Ciriani will assume her new role alongside that of her existing position as chief commercial officer, to which she was appointed in October 2019, according to the firm.
Ralf Emmerich, co-founder and former CEO, will take on the role of executive chairman. He will oversee Finantix Board activities and product strategy.
Ciriani’s appointment follows the acceleration of Finantix’s growth strategy post the investment by Motive Partners in Finantix in February 2019, when she joined the Finantix Board as a non-executive director.
Since she was named CCO, Ciriani has been a driving force behind Finantix’s evolution, focusing on talent acquisition, commercial strategy and market positioning. She has overseen the expansion of the firm’s geographic footprint in core markets across Europe and Asia Pacific, opening new offices in Switzerland, Japan and Australia.

Ciriani played a key role in the recent acquisition of InCube Group AG, an AI and data science-based solution provider out of Zurich.
She brings significant experience in realising potential within organisations globally, formerly holding senior leadership roles in wealth management and professional services at Capco, Detica and JP Morgan and as a board member and advisor of the Swiss entity of a Tier I private bank.
Driving the next phase of growth
“I am delighted to take up this leadership position at Finantix. We are well positioned to capitalise on the investments made since Motive Partners acquired an interest in the company. My new role as CEO will see me continue to work with our talented team to drive the next phase of our growth, and to ensure that both our integrated and point solutions are rapidly adopted in the market to deliver the data-enabled, digitally-connected, and content-rich services today’s clients demand,” Ciriani commented on her appointment.
Ralf Emmerich, co-founder and executive chairman of Finantix said that under Ciriani’s leadership and working with our management team, the firm has successfully accelerated the process of expanding its extensive portfolio of innovative products.
“We have grown the Finantix global footprint, and we have added and will continue to add capabilities that will maintain our position as the leading global provider of trusted technology to the wealth management, insurance and banking industries. Now is the ideal time for me to hand over the reins to Christine so she can continue to build on the strong foundations we have created. This will in turn allow me to focus even more on the overall product strategy as part of our ambitious organic and inorganic growth plan. I wish Christine every success and am delighted to continue to work alongside her as we write the next chapter in the Finantix success story,” Emmerich added.
