Equiduct Trading, the pan-European equities trading venue owned by Börse Berlin, has appointed Peter Rowe as its new director and head of sales for the UK, Netherlands and Ireland.
His responsibilities will focus on the development of Equiduct, from its London offices, ahead of the regulated market’s planned pan-European full launch later this year.
Rowe’s previous positions include head of UK sales for NYSE Euronext and sales director for Archipelago Europe, where he was responsible for sales and relationship management to UK member firms.
He will takeover the position on 8 September from Jonathan Woodward, who is returning to Australia.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for me to join an experienced business as it launches a new and differentiated product into an emerging and truly competitive marketplace,” said Rowe, in a statement. “Much work has already been done but there is still more to do and the markets I will be covering are key areas for the future development of Equiduct.”
