Trayport adds new international staff as expansion continues

13 January 2009

Trayport, a GFI Group company and leading provider of multi-asset class electronic trading solutions, announces two new hires.

• Jeremy Harris appointed as Vice President of Asia-Pacific Operations

• Kilian Brandon appointed as Sales Manager within the Americas

Edmund Hor, Trayport’s Chief Executive says, “These two experienced additions will not only help to bolster our international presence but also help us to drive the business forward for continued global success.”

Jeremy Harris comes to Trayport bringing experience in both Asia Pacific and finance. Having started and then run StreamVPN’s Alpha Network in Asia, up to its 2005 acquisition by FactSet Research Systems and beyond, Jeremy has established a strong presence in Asia Pacific banking and finance. Prior to this, Jeremy helped establish Credit Market Analysis in London as a leading provider of credit market data. He has also worked in Hong Kong, Singapore, London and the Middle East for Reuters.

Jeremy says, “This role presents a great opportunity to build on Trayport's market leading position in cross-asset class trading systems. Trayport’s GlobalVision software meets the needs of many of the financial world's most demanding exchanges, brokers and traders and I look forward enormously to leveraging Trayport's strengths to increase our client base across the region.”

Kilian comes to Trayport with Foreign Exchange and media sales experience gained in New York. Helping to build on Trayport’s client network in the US, Killian will be working closing with existing clients, and developing new relationships as Trayport targets an increasingly international presence for GlobalVision.

Kilian says, “I am delighted to have the chance to work with not only such a powerful electronic trading product in GlobalVision, but also a talented, focused Trayport team in the US. I’m really looking forward to getting involved and achieving great results”.
