Horizon Software (Horizon), the world’s leading provider of electronic trading solutions and algorithmic technology, has announced the appointment of Philippe Thomas as the newest member of its Advisory Board. The move is a key part of the company’s expansion strategy following a successful MBO in June 2018.

Philippe Thomas brings 20 years of experience in financial technology to his role at Horizon. He currently serves as a Business Consultant, Administrator and Investor at New World Wind, leading the coaching and development of software companies. He previously served as COO and Managing Director across APAC, EMEA, and the Americas at Ullink for over thirteen years and has consistently played an important role in managing and building the business growth and reputation of numerous organisations.

Prior to Ullink, Thomas spent six years at SunGard (now part of FIS) as VP of International Sales and then as Managing Director. He began his time in financial technology at NYSE Euronext as a Market Controller, supervising the trading floor at the open outcry market of MATIF (futures contracts).

Sylvain Thieullent, CEO of Horizon Software, commented: “We warmly welcome Philippe to the team as an advisory board member. In his new role, Philippe is committed to providing effective and insightful coaching into business strategies; the importance of this hire for the firm cannot be understated as Philippe is a very well-respected leader in the financial industry.”

Philippe Thomas said: “I’m very much looking forward to playing a part in and helping drive the expansion of Horizon, one of the world’s leading trading technology providers. This is a great opportunity for me to combine my managing and coaching skills as well as financial markets and technology experience to work with Horizon’s executive team and further enhance the company’s outstanding global presence.”

Thieullent added: “Philippe’s breadth of knowledge and experience, his vision and his business strategy will all be hugely advantageous to Horizon’s continuing global growth in the near future and in the coming years.”
