"I am very pleased to have Scott on board at NYFIX," said Howard Edelstein, Chief Executive Officer at NYFIX. "As we move forward to scale our business in 2007 and beyond, the growth and development of our people remains one of our highest corporate priorities. Scott's proven abilities in the legal and corporate development areas, together with his background in people practices and finance, make him an extremely valuable addition to the NYFIX team."
Most recently Mr. Bloom was Executive Vice President of corporate development and human resources and general counsel at Dictaphone Corporation, where he served on the Company's three-person senior leadership team that had strategic and operational accountability for all aspects of the business. Prior to that, he was a Director, Finance, at AT&T, where he developed and led operational improvement teams. Mr. Bloom began his professional career in 1991 as an attorney at Kelley Drye & Warren. He holds an MBA in Finance from The Wharton School and a JD from William & Mary.
"NYFIX has an impressive history of innovation, a broad and deep product offering, and strong relationships with its clients," said Mr. Bloom. "I am greatly looking forward to working with Howard and the dynamic leadership team he has assembled as together we seek to take the business to the next level."
In January NYFIX announced the appointment of four new senior management executives: Brennan Carley, David Merrill, Robert Moitoso and Chris Walsh. Mr. Bloom now joins this newly-expanded NYFIX leadership team, which has been charged with building out the Company's existing footprint within the global financial markets.
