Former Bloomberg Tradebook CEO joins Dash Financial Technologies

Industry veteran Glenn Lesko handed responsibility for global growth strategy of Dash Financial Technologies following management buy-out in March.

The former chief executive of Bloomberg Tradebook Glenn Lesko has been appointed chief growth officer at Dash Financial Technologies.

Lesko will be responsible for driving the firm’s revenue growth objectives globally, both organically and inorganically, having joined the firm from Bloomberg Tradebook, where he was chief executive since January 2015.

Prior to the Lesko spent almost a decade with Instinet as CEO of Instinet Asia and later head of Americas Equities, with other previous roles at Deutsche Bank, CF Global and ABN Amro.

“Over the course of his career, Glenn has driven results through a leadership approach that encourages entrepreneurialism, instils a client-centric mindset and ultimately leads to sustained operational excellence,” said Peter Maragos, CEO of Dash Financial Technologies. “We’re extremely excited to welcome him to the firm.”

Lesko is the latest arrival at the vendor from Bloomberg Tradebook after Jamie Bogen was appointed MD of execution services in April.
