Alex Zinny Joins CloudQuant as Sales Director to Meet Heightened Industry Demand

CHICAGO, IL / CHARLESTON, SC JAN 11, 2021 – CloudQuant, LLC., a multi-award winning global alternative data management and investment strategy development platform, today announced that Alex Zinny has joined the firm as a Sales Director, operating out of Charleston, SC. Zinny brings a unique perspective and thorough understanding of the industry having worked on the buy-side, sell-side, and as a vendor over the course of his two decades serving institutional investors.
Reporting to Ted Sturiale, CloudQuant-Head of Sales, Zinny will play a key role in helping CloudQuant accelerate new customer acquisition. Zinny will assist CloudQuant in response to increased demand for products and services from fundamental, quantitative, systematic and private equity investors.
“We see tremendous opportunity for growth globally and Alex is ideally suited to help us achieve that goal. He has extensive, well-rounded fin-tech and capital markets experience, as well as a strong track record of success in the industry. Our CEO, Morgan Slade, and I see him as a potential game changer for our business. He understands the challenges our clients face and is excited to deliver our industry leading platform to help customers find alpha using our tools,” said Sturiale.
Zinny said “the CloudQuant platform stands apart from others in the space in that it speeds up the time to implementing data strategies by freeing clients from data engineering and providing a platform for clients to test new datasets, run backtests, and leverage the research team to find alpha. As demand for structured and unstructured data grows so does the demand for the necessary tools needed to analyze and ultimately monetize that data. CloudQuant can provide both and I’m excited to be part of the team tasked with expanding the footprint of this game changing platform that already serves hundreds of portfolio managers and traders.” Zinny earned a Bachelor of Science from Babson College, and a Masters Degree in Finance from Boston College.
