“Since joining Global Shares as an Operations Analyst back in 2012, I quickly gained an excellent knowledge of the business and of what this company was looking to achieve. Eager to help grow the company, I took the opportunity to move to the United States to set up our US base. This offered extra support to our US clients while also helped us to win new business. Moving into Sales was always an ambition of mine. I know we have the best product on the market and I am passionate to help make administration of stock plans as effortless as possible for our clients. I see Global Shares growing significantly from its current standing within the US market and I am delighted to be leading this charge” – Hugh Curran, Vice President & General Manager of Global Shares in the US.
