Former ISS head of proxy distribution joins Broadridge

Manuel_BaptistaBroadridge Financial Solutions has extended its global sales capability with the appointment of Manuel Baptista as head of international investor communications and sales.

The newly-created position reflects the company’s ambitions to promote its investor communications services to a wider client base across issuers and institutional investors, custodians and other financial intermediaries.

Based in Belgium, the appointment is one of a number of steps that the company is taking to meet growing client demand.

In his new role, he reports to Bob Santangelo, president of international sales.
