RICHMOND, Va., Dec. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Oyster Consulting announced today that George Jennison has joined the financial services consulting firm. As Associate Director, he will support clients who want to trade more efficiently and effectively while reducing operational risk, meeting regulatory reporting requirements, and — most importantly — meeting their customers' needs. George brings more than three decades of senior level management expertise in equities. In addition to serving as Head of the Equity Services Group at Wachovia Securities and Senior Vice President at Shearson, Lehman, Hutton, George has served appointed roles for SIA, the SEC and NASDAQ. He also has deep experience working as a trader in the trenches.
"George brings the combination of first-hand knowledge and strategic leadership that is the foundation of our firm's approach," explains Buddy Doyle, Oyster Consulting founding principal and managing director. "He understands the balancing act traders constantly face — and has the foresight to help firms limit risk and strategically build more productive business practices."
Throughout his career, George has focused on rational, pragmatic work that supports company's growth goals, serves investors well and has built-in risk controls. He will help Oyster Consulting's clients proactively run and manage their trading businesses, providing strategy and structure that support long-term success and day-to-day confidence.
"Equity trading may be inherently risky, but I believe you control that risk and achieve significant growth if you know where to look and what to avoid," says Jennison. "I want to help firms anticipate the operational risks they may not currently recognize — and be ready to grasp new opportunities the moment they arise."
