Options Technology, a provider of cloud-enabled managed services to the global financial space, has promoted Laura McCann to the position of Chief Financial Officer (CFO). McCann previously served as VP Corporate Controller since 2016.

This leadership change coincides with Jon Lambert, who has been serving as the CFO since January 2016, transitioning to the role of Senior Vice President of Corporate Development. Lambert's new responsibilities will encompass the firm's plans for partnerships, mergers, and acquisitions.

Danny Moore, the President and CEO of Options Technology, mentioned: "Laura's promotion to CFO is the next stage in our long-term strategy of building a world-class finance team servicing the global business from our Belfast office."

Options Technology Eyes Global Expansion

According to the company, the consolidation of its finance teams into a unit stationed in Belfast marks an important step for its operations. This approach of uniting diverse talents from various geographical locations is expected to strengthen the company's scalability as it continues to expand over the next five years.

In October, Options Technology launched StrataNet, a global trading network, to offer traders access to market data and multiple trading venues.

This network, featuring 100Gb connectivity, ensures low-latency data transmission and empowers traders to make faster decisions, the company noted. It allows investors the flexibility to choose between dedicated or shared hosting solutions or to connect directly to the network from existing environments for seamless access to global markets.

By leveraging Options' access to various assets and hardware solutions for data transmission, retail brokers can access a wide array of financial instruments in real-time and delayed formats.
