Mr. McDonnell has worked for TT for 16 years and served in a variety of locales for the firm including Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong and the UK. His tenure has been instrumental to TT’s trading success and leaps within the financial industry.
According to Rick Lane, CEO of Trading Technologies, in a recent statement on the promotion, “Robbie’s unique perspective and leadership will benefit our customers as they navigate the increasingly complex challenges of trading derivatives on a global scale. He has had a big hand in helping customers in every major region and will be a strong customer advocate in this role.”
“While TT is already seen as the leading global brand in professional futures trading software, our next-generation trading platform, Nextrader, will elevate the brand even higher by enabling us to mass distribute our software in ways that were never before possible. I’m thrilled to be moving into this position at the center of the futures trading world as the industry gears up for the next phase of electronic trading,” added Mr. McDonnell in an accompanying statement.
Prior to his new appointment, Mr. McDonnell was most recently the Managing Director of Asia/Pacific (APAC), a role he has been entrenched in since 2006 – during this time Mr. McDonnell worked closely with several leading banks, futures commission merchants (FCMs) and APAC exchanges. He originally joined TT in 1998 as part of the firm’s UK sales team.
