Horizon Software, an electronic trading and algorithmic technology solution provider, has promoted Francois-Xavier Detourniere to the position of Head of Product Management.

The technology provider announced the promotion of Detourniere, who has been its Regional Director for Southeast Asia since September 2018, in a statement released on Friday.

However, Detourniere’s LinkedIn career history shows that he resumed the role four months ago.

Horizon Software said it tapped Detourniere to lead its product management team in order to boost its offering in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region.

The news comes less than a month after the platform provider launched a new office in Singapore, which is an addition to the other seven it possesses globally.

The company boasts offices in France, Canada, Hong Kong, China and Thailand, among others.

Horizon Software had said its choice of Singapore was strategic and aimed at boosting its sales figures in the APAC region.

Explaining the choice of Detourniere’s promotion, Horizon noted that the executive has been spearheading the development of its order management system products in Thailand since 2015.

“To ensure Horizon is uniquely positioned in the region to support local players, he will be partnering with the engineering team to plan the development of local product distribution,” Horizon said.

It added, “On top of this, he will be globally responsible for aligning the roadmap of Horizon’s product with the company strategy and vision.”

Speaking further on the appointment, Horizon’s CEO, Sylvain Thieullent, expressed confidence in Detourniere’s ability to help the technology provider to develop innovative technology.

“Francois-Xavier has been working with Horizon since the very first beginning and he was part of its success. He has a deep knowledge of the market and a great experience,” Thieullent said.
