April 25, 2014 — Boston, USA — Sapient Global Markets, a division of Sapient (NASDAQ: SAPE), today announced that Laura A. Rugarber, a business consulting manager based at the firm’s New York office, has been named by Consulting magazine as one of its “35 Under 35” for her ongoing work concerning global derivatives regulation.
Managed by Consulting magazine, the award distinguishes the outstanding accomplishments of 35 individuals under the age of 35 and the firms they represent. In particular the award scrutinizes their professional skills, efforts, vision and those who the magazine’s view are “redefining the consulting profession”.
The award recognized that in less than two years of consultancy work, Laura has established herself as a key strategic partner, supporting market participants including banks, vendors and industry associations, and advising them as they undertake significant transformative work in response to regulatory evolution in the global derivative markets. Consulting highlighted Laura’s varied background prior to consultancy, her aptitude in balancing a collaborative approach with multiple market participants alongside an ability to question the status quo to deliver the required results.
“I’m honored to have been named as part of this select group for Consulting magazine’s 35 under 35,” said Rugarber. “Thanks to Sapient Global Markets and the various regulatory initiatives facing the industry, I’ve had the opportunity to interact and collaborate with a plethora of firms, during some of the most challenging and thought-provoking times for the global derivatives market. That has meant working with banks and asset managers through to market infrastructure providers including CCPs and Trade Repositories to an unprecedented degree.”
“We congratulate Laura on this well-deserved recognition of her dedication to supporting firms as they tackle the new regulatory initiatives affecting the global derivative markets,” said Chip Register, managing director, Sapient Global Markets. “Laura’s understanding of the array of issues being faced by market participants makes her an invaluable asset for our firm and our clients, helping architecting secure and efficient market infrastructure and derivative data standards.”
