Colin is a great addition to the Eka team and I look forward to working with him to drive growth in EMEA.”
Prior to joining Eka, Mr. Cooper was a partner at SunGard Consulting in its energy and commodities practice.

“I am excited to join Eka as the company increases its presence in EMEA,” said Colin Cooper, vice president for EMEA at Eka. “Interest in Eka’s CTRM, ETRM and Commodity Analytics Cloud solutions has exploded as commodities companies move away from long, complicated implementations in favor of solutions with more modern technology and faster ROI. Eka’s software provides the lowest cost to ownership to our customers and I look forward to increasing adoption of these groundbreaking solutions in EMEA.”
