Delta Economics, the economic trade research and forecasting company, has appointed Tony Nash as global vice-president.

Based in Singapore, Nash will be building the reputation, profile and business across the world, but in Asia and the Middle East in the first instance.

Nash has an international career spanning two decades. Prior to joining Delta Economics, Nash held the post of vice-president at IHS in Asia and the Middle East and he also built and led the global research and consulting business for The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), where he was responsible for strategy conception, execution and business development.

Commenting on his appointment, Nash says: “Delta Economics has a perspective that addresses the economic realities of trade and investment as well as an understanding of the importance of thorough, timely economic data to financial markets. These combined with the robust underlying methodology are compelling and truly unique in the space.

“I’m glad to be part of the team. We’re going to do great things.”

Speaking to GTR, Rebecca Harding, CEO of Delta Economics, adds: “Delta Economics is delighted to be appointing Tony to be part of our senior management team as we move into an important stage of our business growth. Our clients are global and so must we be: they demand that we are international and that we have sophisticated and detailed export and export finance data and analytical support wherever they are in the world. Tony will ensure that the Delta vision, which is to make this data and analysis useful to our clients, will be achieved.

“Tony has the visibility, experience and pedigree to ensure that our business has the best leadership team to drive our own internationalisation. His calibre will ensure that we have the capability and the capacity to help our clients to achieve their global goals.”

The Delta Economics team now consists of 12 people and Harding adds: “We have exciting projects on the horizon and are expecting to be adding more capacity as our data and client base expands over the next three to six months.”
