Symphony Communications LLC, the secure collaboration platform, has appointed Craig Butterworth as Head of Global Account Management. 

Butterworth joins Symphony from Nomura, where he served as Managing Director and Global Head of Client Ecosystem – a business led front-to-back digital transformation program. With over 18 years’ experience in capital markets, he previously held Head of Sales roles at Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), State Street and Royal Bank of Canada (RBC).


Passionate about mentoring, career guidance and talent development, Butterworth served as Chair of Nomura’s Global Markets EMEA Graduate Steering Committee, a role he also fulfilled during his time at RBS.


On his appointment, Butterworth commented: “I am looking forward to helping Symphony’s biggest clients and shareholders get the most from the platform, as a core foundational pillar of their digital transformation initiatives.”


Butterworth started his career at Goldman Sachs after receiving a BSc (Hons) in Economics from the University of Warwick. He is an accomplished race car driver, having won a number of championships in karts and cars since he began racing at 10 years old. He is married with two children and lives in the Essex countryside.


Symphony recently raised $165 million in a fresh funding round. It will use the new capital to evolve its newly launched Market Solutions business, to accelerate growth and deliver a new wave of innovation to enterprises as they replace traditional collaboration tools.
