Back in March 2015, Mr. Goodbody Jr. was appointed as the Senior Vice President and Head of FX at Bats, which followed the acquisition of KCG Hotspot FX. Mr. Goodbody Jr. was a part of the group since 2008, having worked previously in number of senior level roles over the past eight years. This included stints as the COO and Head of Sales, and most recently the Managing Director.
At this juncture it is unclear what Mr. Goodbody Jr.’s next move is, however the decision to split was a mutual one. By extension Bats has not made any announcements at this time to fill the role vacated by his departure.
The move follows on the heels of a landmark takeover of Bats by CBOE Holdings, one of the largest exchange operators operating in the US.
