FlexTrade Systems, a global leader in multi-asset execution and order management systems, today announced the appointment of Aaron Levine as Vice President, OEMS Solutions. Based in the company’s headquarters in New York, Levine will manage sales and business development for FlexTrade’s new OEMS solution, FlexONE.
According to Levine, the needs of hedge funds are forever evolving and the requirement to streamline complex order workflows through the front- to-back office has never been higher – and will continue. “It’s a prime opportunity for FlexTrade, which has a well established reputation in the EMS space,” said Levine. “For the past two decades FlexTrade has made performance and flexibility core competencies of FlexTRADER, its execution management platform, which also serves as the foundation for its order management solutions. When combined, you have a truly best-of-breed OEMS.”
Aaron Levine comes to FlexTrade after spending three years at Bloomberg AIM, where he handled OMS sales and relationship management. Prior to Bloomberg, Levine worked at Eze Software Group for three years as an OMS business consultant. He is a graduate of Cornell University with a BS degree in Applied Economics and Management.
“It’s a pleasure to have Aaron join our OMS sales team,” said Jamie Benincasa, FlexTrade’s Senior Vice President, Global Sales. “His background and years of experience in the OMS space makes him the ideal candidate to spearhead the North American rollout of FlexONE, our new OEMS solution for the hedge fund community.”
