True Office, a start-up technology company that gamifies regulatory compliance training, has appointed Cristóbal Conde as executive chairman, effective immediately.
Founded in 2011, True Office creates data-rich, mobile games that help companies reduce risk and save money, transforming mandatory compliance training into a fun, intelligible and quantifiable experience. Squarely in line with key enterprise trends such as tablet and smartphone usage, mobile apps and cloud services and decision analytics, True Office designs and delivers products for a contemporary mobile workforce. Its analytics allow companies to pinpoint areas of vulnerability that have been difficult or impossible to discern until now.
Conde first started working with True Office Founder and CEO Adam Sodowick at the 2012 FinTech Innovation Lab where Conde was Executive-in-Residence. The program, which is run by the New York City Investment Fund and Accenture, supports the development of cutting-edge technologies for the financial services industry in New York City. “The FinTech Innovation Lab provided a unique opportunity for True Office to test its innovative approach to compliance training with senior leadership at a number of leading financial services firms,” said Maria Gotsch, President and CEO of the New York City Investment Fund.
Conde formerly was president and CEO at SunGard, a Fortune 500 privately-held business software and information technology services company, where he worked from 1987 until 2011. At SunGard, he oversaw SunGard's international expansion and its transition to private ownership in a record-breaking leveraged buyout.
Earlier, Conde co-founded Devon Systems. Devon specialized in risk management and record-keeping systems for the interest rate and currency derivative markets and was acquired by SunGard in 1987.
