New York – Jiro Okochi, CEO and Co-founder of Reval, the leading global provider of a cloud-based platform for treasury and risk management, has been recognized as one of the most influential, creative, and powerful people in corporate treasury and transaction services by Global Finance magazine. Named Who’s Who in Treasury & Cash Management 2016, Mr. Okochi is featured in this month’s issue of Global Finance’s 12th annual Treasury & Cash Management Supplement.
“I’m honored to be recognized by the very industry that I set out to serve over 17 years ago,” Okochi says. “As cloud-based technology goes mainstream in corporate treasury, more companies are relying on Reval’s software-as-a-service to deliver the single solution they are looking for and can grow with.”

He leveled the playing field for growing mid-market companies with cloud-based treasury offering Reval CORE, introduced Reval INSIDE to bring advanced liquidity management capabilities to corporate banking clients online, and rolled out ClearPath, a new migration service designed to make it easy and affordable for corporate treasuries to move off legacy technology and onto the cloud.
