Leading technology entrepreneur brings expertise to increase transparency and accelerate Acronis’ global expansion

Schaffhausen, Switzerland, June 19th 2018 — /BackupReview.info/ — Acronis, a global leader in hybrid cloud cyber protection currently celebrating its 15-year anniversary, today announced that Charles Ryan, Chairman and CEO of United Financial Group (UFG) Asset Management and a senior advisor to Deutsche Bank AG, joined the Acronis board of directors following a unanimous vote at a recent shareholders’ meeting in Zurich.

The American banker has a proven capacity to understand global political and economic context and develop businesses with ultimate transparency.

As a board member, Ryan will help guide Acronis’ global expansion, taking advantage of the company’s Singaporean origin and Swiss-owned IP, reinforcing Acronis’ position as the most reliable cyber protection vendor on the global market.

Ryan co-founded UFG in 1994 and helped it become one of the most successful investment companies in Eastern Europe before Deutsche Bank acquired it in 2006. While he remains Senior Advisor to Deutsche Bank AG, Ryan’s primary executive role is running UFG Asset Management, an independent entity that UFG founded in 1996. Today, UFG Asset Management is one of the leading alternative asset managers with over $1.8 billion of assets in hedge fund, private equity and real estate investments.

Before founding UFG, Ryan worked as a financial analyst with CS First Boston from 1989 to 1991 and as an associate and principal banker with the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development in London from 1991 to 1994.

“Charles is a pioneer in the financial industry supporting global IT projects, and we’re excited to welcome him to Acronis’ board of directors,” said John Zanni, President of Acronis. “His top-level expertise and deep knowledge of international markets will be extremely valuable as Acronis continues to expand its presence around the world.”

As a truly independent company founded in Singapore, with corporate headquarters in Switzerland, and strong presence in the U.S., we are confident that Charles has the ability to understand our global nature and will have a positive impact on our business,” said Serguei Beloussov, co-founder and CEO of Acronis.

“Acronis is one of the most dynamic IT companies providing innovative data protection services to businesses around the world. I’m honored to be joining the board,” said Ryan.
