John Randles, CEO, Bloomberg PolarLake
John Randles has led Bloomberg PolarLake since it was formed in 2012 as a result of the Bloomberg acquisition of PolarLake Ltd. John joined PolarLake as Chief Executive Officer in 2006 and drove the company’s move from being an integration technology supplier in many industries to focus 100% on the Capital Markets industry and particularly the Data Management challenges of that industry. Over six years, PolarLake established itself as the most innovative vendor in the sector leading to the acquisition in 2012.
Prior to joining PolarLake in 2006 as Chief Executive Officer, John was CTO of Banking at Siebel Systems for a number of years having joined Siebel through their 2004 acquisition of Eontec, an Irish based Retail Banking Software vendor of which John was CTO. John originally joined Eontec as a Software Engineer and worked in a variety of roles across R&D Management, Product Management, Pre-Sales and Sales & Marketing over a number of years.
John led and managed the transformation of PolarLake from a pure Software vendor to a Data Management Service provider as Bloomberg PolarLake has re-structured the company’s offerings with the backing of Bloomberg.
John Randles is a graduate of Computer Engineering from the University of Limerick, Ireland.
