Levy joined MEARS Technologies, Inc. as its CEO in February and brought to the company his comprehensive experience of successfully growing and strengthening technologically dynamic companies.
In 1991, Levy co-founded Macgregor, a financial technology firm, and continued working there until 2006, having led its sale to ITG.
Macgregor provided trade order management and networking solutions to the asset management and brokerage industry. Levy's ability to create new revenue sharing models within the industry allowed Macgregor to gain a greater portion of the value they were delivering than traditional technology providers.
Mazzarella has more than 33 years of experience in the securities industry and more than 18 years at Fidelity Investments, most recently as president of Fidelity Brokerage Services. During his tenure at Fidelity, he was also president of Fidelity's Institutional Brokerage Group which included Fidelity Capital Markets, correspondent clearing services, Registered Investment Advisor services, and market data distribution services.
Currently, Mazzarella holds board positions at Placemark Investments, an RIA in Wellesley, Massachusetts; M & O, Inc., a technology firm providing database services to financial firms; Siebert Financial Corporation, a public financial services firm; and the Boston Stock Exchange. He is also chair of the Boston Options Exchange Regulatory Board and provides consulting services to a number of major financial services and venture capital firms.
