Chris Webster, President of Global System Solutions (GSS), is also the lead Business Analyst and Solutions Designer for a company that prides itself on “sleeves rolled up” support for the past 20 years.
Chris started as a Documenter, Trainer and consulting Business Analyst in the eighties, supporting system implementations in the US, Asia and Europe. In those early days, Chris thrived as a self-starter, reverse engineering system functionalities in environments where home office support was scant.
Moving up to Financial systems implementation project management, Chris was exposed to the international and multi-currency sides of the business. Chris taught PM seminars to groups of 50+ for a time as well.
Looking to make a unique mark on the financial services consulting forum, Chris formed Global System Solutions in June 1998. Now in its 20th year, Global System Solutions offers two major verticals of support, both pioneered by Chris. These support offerings of Business Analysis and System Implementation support, as well as custom automated tool development (Data Management Support Services) complement each other quite well.
Chris’ unique experience involves technical solution development and senior analytical skills, as well as the main impetus for GSS business development.
The 20-year success story with GSS spans pre- and post system implementations support, systems analysis, Operational support and augmentation, procedures development, and project management, pioneered and lead by Chris Webster, with his direct and unwavering involvement. These services are provided for a diverse client base in financial services: Trust, Custody, Global Custody, Retirement Services, Real Estate Investment, Broker Dealer and Securities Settlement and SMAC services.
As GSS enters the beginning of its third decade, Chris’ goals are to further solidify the presence of GSS as an IT support component for Operations, by innovating additional suites of system support methodologies and automated tools.
Chris received a bachelor degree from St. Josephs University. He currently resides in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
