Kingsmen Software announced today that Henk Bouhuys will help guide the firm’s expansion of its capital markets product portfolio and provide invaluable domain expertise across the Kingsmen platform.
Prior to joining the Kingsmen team Henk was the CFO for Concerto Asset Management, LLC, a SEC-registered investment adviser focused primarily on corporate credit. In addition to both financial and operational roles, he had oversight in the development of a highly scalable state-of-the-art technology platform that utilized both in-house and third-party vendor resources to generate sophisticated financial analytics, reporting and compliance capabilities.
As Managing Director at Banc of America Securities he helped build profitable client-facing business units in the capital markets arena encompassing multiple product offerings across the credit spectrum. Bouhuys helped to establish and expand the investment grade and high yield capital markets efforts into top 10 league-table businesses.
With over 30 years of experience as both a marketer and consumer of capital markets products and services, Henk brings a level of expertise to Kingsmen that is unparalleled in the software development arena. Micah Minarik, CEO and Co-Founder of Kingsmen Software states, “Most software companies are ill-equipped to provide investment banking clients with relevant products that help manage and grow their businesses. Henk’s insights will give us a tremendous edge over competitors in developing software solutions for these and other clients in a faster, more efficient way.”
Bouhuys is excited to work with the young and growing company. “I’ve always embraced open, collaborative relationships with my clients and colleagues because I believe that results in optimal outcomes. Micah started Kingsmen Software with those principles as a foundation and the firm continues to embrace those values,” he said. Beyond principles, Henk feels strongly about the day to day work to be truly Agile. “It isn’t enough to simply talk about being Lean-Agile; the lessons and values must be embraced and incorporated into all you do. This is where Kingsmen excels: going beyond the nuts and bolts of code and working to understand the ‘why.’ As a result, Kingsmen’s software delivery is not only efficient but also an extremely transparent process to the client.”
Before moving to Charlotte Henk spent 13 years in New York in banking and finance, including a stint as interim Director of Finance at Manufacturers Hanover – a predecessor of JP Morgan – where he was responsible for all of the financing activities for the corporation and its non-bank subsidiaries. He holds a BA in Economics from Trinity College and an MBA-Finance from Columbia University.
