Gerry Wilkinson has been appointed manager of Raft International's Radar operational-risk product suite. Wilkinson will be responsible for product development and client marketing for the solution. Previously, he was director of operational risk supplier Amelia. The Radar product suite was commercially released in October of 2001 and while Raft says initial interest was high, it has so far had only limited success with concrete sales.
Kamakura is also shifting some senior-management positions, naming Warren Sherman as president and COO. Prior to this appointment, Sherman served as managing director for client services for the company. In addition, Leonard Matz and Ardi Tavakol have been appointed managing director and managing director for client services and installations respectively. Previous president and founder of Kamakura Donald van Deventer will retain his CEO title and become chairman of the company.
