Tokyo JAPAN, MAY 6, 2004 — MetaBit has appointed Yasuo Takahashi, a senior software sales person, specialised for Japan’s financial industry as its Head of Marketing & Sales. Y Takahashi will take ownership to manage the sales and marketing effort for MetaBit’s equities trading products MetaXLTM and XiliX™, as well as coordinating the marketing and sales effort for MetaBit’s partner firm’s products CameronFIX (by Cameron Systems) and GAIN Data desktop (by AIM Software).

Yasuo Takahashi has joined MetaBit after a 15 year career in software sales with Reuters in Tokyo and London, where he was responsible for selling financial information services, trading room systems and software products to Japanese corporations in the financial industry.

'Increased demand for DMA by Japanese domestic asset managers and a growing hedge fund community that focuses on trading into Japan, has demanded MetaBit to expand its Sales & Marketing team, based on a two pronged strategy for domestic and overseas target clients,' said Daniel Bürgin, CEO at MetaBit. 'We are very pleased to have obtained Mr. Takahashi's valuable expertise in financial software products. His exposure in the Japanese domestic market and his overseas track record perfectly match MetaBit's needs considering our target clients in and outside Japan.'
