The founder and Outgoing CEO of the company, Mikael Breinholst elaborated: “A little more than five years ago, Tradeworks was started in my basement, and since then the company has come a long way and seen fantastic growth.

Elaborating on his new role at the company, the new CEO of Tradeworks, Thomas Pedersen, shared: “There is no doubt that the demand for algo trading tools is increasing; therefore I can’t imagine a better opportunity than to become a part of a company with world-class software that addresses an unsatisfied demand in the market.”

By using the company’s cloud-based product, users can not only develop, but also design, backtest, run and analyze their robots.
