Dove Associates Inc., a consulting firm active in electronic banking and payment systems, has appointed Beverly Kennedy director of risk management in its financial services practice.
She will work in the Atlanta office with Stephen P. White, whose consulting firm, Syntonix, merged with Boston-based Dove Associates last year.
Dove has offices in Boston, San Francisco, and Atlanta, and plans to open offices in San Diego and Brussels.
Ms. Kennedy was senior vice president of risk management at Servantis Systems, where she developed risk management and control systems and started a consulting group.
Mr. White said that risk management would be one of the key niches served by the firm, and that Ms. Kennedy would be "an integral part of our practice."
