Tullett Prebon Information (TPI), a global provider of real-time financial market data, has expanded its commercial team with three new business development appointments in Dubai, Singapore and Shanghai.
Frank Desmond, managing director of TPI, said: “We’ve created these roles in response to our continued growth across a broad range of geographies. Asia Pacific and the Middle East, in particular, present major business opportunities and it’s important that we deploy the right resources to realise our development plans.”
Leigh Carpenter will take on the role of sales executive responsible for managing TPI’s growing business in India, the Middle East and Africa. Based in Dubai, he brings a wealth of industry experience having most recently worked at Thomson Reuters, where he promoted real-time data to businesses across the Middle East and North Africa. Prior to this, Leigh spent 16 years working for Interactive Data in various commercial roles including heading the UK sales operation.

Rhys has worked at TPI for over four years in product and technical support roles and has extensive knowledge of the OTC market data landscape.
TPI has also appointed Rain Tian as business development manager in China, based in Shanghai.

Andrew Reeve, head of Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, said: “The rapid development of these financial markets has heightened the appetite for independent, high quality OTC data. With the opening up of territories such as China, as well as the introduction of new compliance and risk standards, firms are seeking the very best of both onshore and international content.These new appointments are a crucial part of our international growth plans and ensure we are primed to meet growing demand and better service our customers.”
