ICE Data Services veteran joins Vela amid expansion

Vela looks to expand its global products and account management teams with two new faces.


A veteran product manager at ICE Data Services has joined the London team of trading and market access technology firm, Vela, as the firm expands its workforce in London and New York.

Cedric Rondeaux has been appointed product manager at Vela within the global product management team, taking control of the strategy for its market data business. He will report to Ollie Cadman, chief product officer.

Prior to this move, Rondeaux was a product manager for ICE Data Services and spent 13 years at the company. Vela said that in his new role, he will drive the firm’s response to key clients, and market and regulatory trends, while expanding its product suite.

“Given our focus on expanding our market data feed, SuperFeed, Cedric brings valuable experience to the role, particularly with his background in managing real-time consolidated market data feed products,” said Cadman. “His appointment will help ensure success in the execution of our aggressive global roadmap.”

Vela added that it has made a number of new hires within its engineering, client services and corporate teams in New York, Chicago, Belfast and Manila in past three months. Among them, was Ryan Hsu, a former account executive at commodities broker Starfuels. He joined Vela as an account manager to support the firms automated trading platform, Metro.
