Likezero has undergone some exciting strategic leadership changes in 2024, with Khilan Shah taking on the role of Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) and the recent appointment of Edouard Chalopin as Chief Product Officer (CPO).
As CRO, Khilan is responsible for the Sales, Marketing, and Account Management functions, leveraging his expertise in addressing global financial markets’ contractual data challenges. Following a very successful 2023, the Likezero team aims to continue expanding its global footprint as the leading contract intelligence solutions provider. Financial firms grappling with unstructured data and regulatory challenges are now fighting against their inefficient legal processes set up post the global financial crisis. Khilan’s team consists of experts who understand these business challenges and are providing clients with structured, contextualised data.
Commenting on his new role, Khilan expressed excitement about the opportunity: “As we celebrate Likezero’s third-year anniversary since the buyout from PwC, it’s amazing to see how far we have come. From the second day of the new year, we kicked off onboarding for our new portfolio of global top-tier clients. I anticipate that 2024 will bring even more success for our excellent team, and I’m looking forward to driving more growth in my new position.”
In parallel, Edouard Chalopin, newly appointed Chief Product Officer at Likezero, brings extensive experience in business strategy, design, and technology, having previously served as CEO of Semantic Evolution. Ed is set to lead the development and implementation of Likezero’s global product strategy.
Expressing his enthusiasm for the role, Ed states, “I’m excited to join Likezero to further develop its trusted and industry-leading software. The rapid adoption by tier 1 banks is a testament of the requirements to efficiently access global market derivatives contractual data to manage counterparty risk as well as address growing regulatory data governance needs. I think that my experience in providing state-of-the-art data services in this market will be of real interest to our clients and the broader market.”
Michael Lines, Likezero’s CEO, commented, “Likezero aims to further solidify its position as an industry leader, and the extensive experience and skills that Khilan and Edouard bring will enable the company to reach the next level.”
