His more than 25 years of deep industry expertise and his breadth of market structure knowledge will prove instrumental as we continue to improve our competitive positioning and actively expand into new markets. Michael’s strong banking background and external client focus will help TT open new doors, develop unique business opportunities, and accelerate our commercial partnerships as we expand more broadly across the sector.”

The company has reinvented itself in several respects, and with a robust technology platform enabling new trading solutions, data products and access to new markets going forward, TT stands well-positioned to move to the next level. I am very eager to leverage my industry expertise in order to build upon those efforts, further accelerate TT’s growth, and contribute to the firm’s overall success.”
