Horizon, a trading technology provider, announced on Monday that it has appointed Keith Todd to its advisory board.
“Keith is very well known in the financial business industry and is often seen as the go-to person for knowledgeable and insightful advice,” said Horizon CEO Sylvain Thieullent. “We are thrilled that he’s agreed to join Horizon as an Independent Advisory Board member and I feel confident that he will be a truly valuable asset to Horizon.”
It is almost certain that Todd will be a “valuable asset” to Horizon. Currently the CEO and Chairman of KRM22, a risk management software company he helped found last year, Todd has over four decades of experience working in technology and financial services.
Way back in 1975, when Gerald Ford was president and Glenn Campbell was singing about rhinestone cowboys; Todd was working as Chief Financial Officer for a subsidiary of General Electric – GEC Marconi.

It was a position he held for over a decade before, in 1987, he was appointed CEO of International Computers Limited (ICL) – a technology company acquired by Japanese firm Fujitsu in 2002.

Todd left ICL in 2000, just prior to its acquisition, and has held a number of executive and non-executive roles since then.
Most notably, he was Executive Chairman on the board of FFastFill – a risk management company – between 2002 and 2017.
He held a similar role as a Non-Executive Chairman with software company ION Trading from 2015 to 2017.
More recently, and outside the realm of financial services, Todd joined the board of WhaleSlide – an ad-free internet browser – as a Non-Executive Chairman.
“I really look forward to working with Horizon and using my experience to benefit the team in delivering the unrivalled offering its clients have come to expect.” He added: “I’m delighted to be working with Sylvain and the team and looking forward to helping the company develop and expand.”
