Mr. Cristóbal Conde is a Board Member of Centripetal. He served as Chairman at Calastone. Late last year, Conde took up a seat on the Calastone board as a non-executive director, and invested in the privately held business. Having spent 28 years at SunGard, Conde has a formidable track record of accelerating the growth of financial technology companies. It started in 1983, when Conde co-founded a financial technology software business, Devon Systems, serving the derivatives markets globally. After SunGard acquired it in 1987, Conde ran his business as a division of the parent company, growing it into one of the largest businesses at SunGard. Following this success, Conde was subsequently promoted to run the entire SunGard business, which he took private in 2005 in a record-breaking $11.3bn LBO transaction. Conde stepped down from SunGard in May 2011, by which time the technology giant had revenues of $5.6bn, was ranked 380th on the Fortune 500 list and was the largest privately held business software and IT services company in the world. He continues to serve as a senior member of the Partnership for NYC Fund's Fintech incubator for software companies and is a senior adviser and director of several for-profit and non-profit organizations. As Chairman of Calastone, Conde will work with the Board and senior management team to continue excellence in the global transaction network's business.
