NEW YORK, October 1, 2015 — ClearStar, a leading provider of background check technology and services based in Alpharetta, GA, announced today that David Pattillo, its Chief Financial Officer, has been selected to be the keynote speaker at the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) Americas Listing Seminar, an event created to celebrate London as the leading market for international finance.
Pattillo has an accomplished career in leading companies through high growth expansion, both domestically and internationally. In 2014, he led ClearStar through an IPO on AIM after having done the same as CFO for MyCelx Technologies Corporation in 2011.
“David is a part of the LSEG community, ” said Alexander Lehmann, Head of Americas, Primary Markets with LSEG. “His experience, having successfully shepherded two private companies to the public markets and having served as CFO of each, has well-equipped him to speak to considerations of both an IPO process and being publicly-listed for companies on LSEG’s marketplaces.”
Pattillo’s speech will open the Americas Listing Seminar on October 1, 2015 at the British Consulate General New York in New York City. Seminar attendees will then have the opportunity to take part in panels such as “Raising Capital in London” and “Recent Trends in Issuance and Investor Interest.” The event will be followed by a networking reception at the Residence of the British Consul-General.
“I am honored to have been chosen as the keynote speaker for such an important event, ” said Pattillo. “U.K. investors have supported growth companies from all over the world and in particular the U.S., and the AIM market is an ideal Exchange for companies of our size to raise much-needed growth capital. I look forward to supporting LSEG efforts and sharing the positive experiences I have had.”
