In his new role as the Global Head of Enterprise Data and Technology, Mr. Perretta will be tasked with engendering and fostering the group’s overall technology strategy, whilst aggregating State Street’s data and insights for its global clientele. Following his promotion, State Street has added Antoine Shagoury as its Global CIO, who joins the group from the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG).
Prior to joining State Street in 2007, Mr. Perretta worked at General Electric (GE) Commercial Finance between 2002-2007. Additionally, he worked as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at GE Capital and the CIO of GE Retail Financial Services dating back to 1999.
Late last month, State Street made a new hire to its foreign exchange (FX) platform, Currenex, having brought in Daniel Flowerdew as its FX Sales specialist for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) regions. His move to State Street’s Currenex snapped a two-year stint at Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML).
