Charles River Development, a State Street Company, announced that Dmitriy Ilyin has been appointed Managing Director of Software as a Service (SaaS) Operations and Support, responsible for all SaaS and Technical Support teams globally. In addition, Ilyin will oversee Charles River’s continuing transition to Microsoft Azure and help shape the firm’s strategic cloud direction and growth strategy.
Previously, Ilyin led the Technical Operations team at Intralinks, a FinTech provider for Mergers & Acquisitions services.

He also developed an Information Technology Services Management (ITSM) practice focused on driving operational excellence.
