London-based trading technology provider Fixnetix has employed Bob Fuller, formerly CEO of pan-European trading venue Equiduct, as a full-time director and board member.
Fuller has served as a non-executive board member for the firm for more than four years. Prior to joining Equiduct, he worked for broker Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein as director of IT strategy, focusing on infrastructure and exchange connectivity. He was also co-chair of the IT sub-group of the MiFID Joint Working Group, which was formed to assess the impact of the directive on Europe. In his new role, Fuller will be directly involved in the growth and development of Fixnetix's business activities.
“Bob Fuller's experience with trading and data technologies coupled with deep roots in market regulations will only add value to Fixnetix,” said Hugh Hughes, chief executive of Fixnetix, adding that the presence of Fuller as a well respected market practitioner would serve to strengthen the firm in the eyes of its customers.
Fixnetix offers its services from 26 co-location and proximity hosting centres across Europe and the US to support trading in cash equities, futures, FX, commodities and bond markets. The company also offers both raw and ultra-low latency normalised market data services, as well as low-latency trading access for member firms and sponsored trading access to over 55 markets globally.
