Etrading Software has made three new hires in its London office, and developed a new operational layer in Asia.
In Europe, Etrading Software has built up its outsourced services delivery capability through the hiring of James Haskell as business operations officer (BOO), David Lane as technical operations officer (TOO) and the appointment of Will Palmer as chief information security officer (CISO). These senior appointments are charged with overseeing the day to day operations of ETS’ existing and new managed services offerings.
Etrading Software designs, builds and operates technology solutions, framing, facilitating and navigating complex decision-making structures – from incubation to execution – that provide financial institutions and industry initiatives with technology designed for over-the-counter (OTC) markets. Examples include its work with Neptune Networks, the Derivatives Service Bureau (DSB) and most recently the Loan Desktop platform.
With over 20 years’ experience working in financial services and operations in London, New York and Hong-Kong, including more than 13 years in Goldman Sachs, Haskell joined Etrading Software in May 2020, in the newly created role of BOO, with oversight for the day-to-day operational running of Etrading Software’s existing and new managed service products.
Lane has over 20 years’ experience in tier one investment banking and derivatives exchange trading environments. His more recent engagements have involved supporting financial institutions in technology strategy, governance, and risk frameworks primarily in association with cloud migrations.
As the new CISO, with over 25 years’ experience in IT within the financial services sector in both London and Asia, Palmer will be using his prior knowledge of service stability, client on-boarding, continual service improvement and team delivery to build a company-wide security strategy for the firm.
In Asia, Etrading Software has expanded its offering to include a design, build, operate model for Etrading Software clients, incorporating a 24 x 7 operations capability for services.
Sassan Danesh, managing partner said, “Our offices in Manilla have been long established as a centre for excellence, and we are seeing increased interest from the marketplace to utilise our outsourced services model.”
