CME Group senior director joins United Fintech as senior relationship manager

New appointment joins after seven years at CME Group, having previously served at FXall, Barclays Capital, Lehman Brothers and Bloomberg LP.

Start-up United Fintech has appointed a senior director from CME Group as its new senior relationship manager.

Chris Codo takes on the role, after spending the last seven years at CME Group as senior director, with a focus on selling to hedge funds.

Before joining CME Group, Codo served as sales director at FXall and prior to that, held the same position at Barclays Capital.

Earlier in his career, he held the position of vice president at both Lehman Brothers and Bloomberg LP.

“I have known Chris for over 15 years and he is without doubt one of the most accomplished sales people out there,” said Tom Robinson, partner and head of sales at United Fintech.

“Chris has a proven track record of hitting revenue targets and deepening the relationships across his extensive network.”

Based in United Fintech’s London office, Codo will be focused on selling to existing relationships alongside managing the firm’s largest clients.

“I am looking forward to leveraging my knowledge and my network to provide asset managers and hedge funds with innovative technology solutions which address some of the pain points they are currently experiencing, helping them to evolve and gain a competitive edge,” added Codo.
