JT Burke has joined China Systems US and Canada as vice-president of business development.

Burke joins from ACI, where he was a solution consultant and product manager for the firm’s trade finance portfolio.

At China Systems he has been tasked with reintroducing the company’s solutions and technology to the North American market and increasing its client base in the region.

Based in New York, he reports to Pedro Ramos, deputy managing director, China Systems US and Canada.

“China Systems is installed at some of the world’s largest trade finance banks. But in this market our expertise lacks the recognition it enjoys worldwide. My goal is to show banks in North America how our systems help them meet the needs of their clients, lower operating costs, and drive new revenues into the trade portfolio with sophisticated product offerings and processing capabilities,” Burke tells GTR.
